About this poster
Gstaad (1010 m.a.s,) is appreciated by its old, stylish and discreet establishment, a most charming place in the Bernese Oberland with its chalet style hotels or chalet apartments. Gstaad is better known for its residents than for its skiing . Popular with non-skiers who like to play the „who‘s that in the sun glasses“ game as they sit around in restaurants, in the „piscine“ or stroll up and down the main street.
