Altitude with Attitude

Another mountain, another mood, another day!
Long the resort of a diamond-drenched crowd, Gstaad preserves its original character as “the last paradise in a crazy world”.


The ultimate place to retreat from the world for those seeking peace and calm. An authentic and charming chalet village which maintains its secular traditions and craftmanship. A place attracting the light while promoting discretion and privacy. In a fascinating mixture of genres, the jet-set lifestyle meets a distinctive art of living.

From having lunch on the glacier via a short helicopter ride, dog sledding, ice-skating, taking a stroll in the sky at Glacier 3000 Peak Walk, listening to Sommets Musicaux, strolling along the shop-lined Promenade, hot air ballooning, the queen of Bernese Oberland has it all. An authentic landscape

imbued with a family spirit, where de GRISOGONO has inked its memories.


The Outward illusion of apparent simplicity
Made of daring yet comfortable designs that inspire and engage the senses, de GRISOGONO creations are mastered to perfection. Like the art of paper-cutting, gold silhouettes are cut outs and adorned with stones magic. A love for craftsmanship, a take on traditions.

No short of superstars
Personalities and celebrities, family and friends, past and present. Over time, all have become icons, sources of inspiration. Unbridled imagination, a natural sense of contemporary elegance giving rise to an influential style: de GRISOGONO collections are not short on superstars.


Enter the realm of high end mixologie. A barman as a jeweller applying the same qualitative approach on ingredients mastering the techniques, playing on creativity to reach a fine cocktail signature.
In the lobby bar of the Palace, we have a date with the movers and shakers of Gstaad.
At drinks time, regulars and passing celebrities alike get together for a drink.
At the bar the regulars no longer ask the barman about the hundreds of matchboxes on the counter.
