Winter Events in Gstaad

Gstaad's winter events calendar is hard to beat. For music lovers, there is the New Year Music Festival, plus the musical highlight of the season, Sommets Musicaux de Gstaad, where emerging artists and international virtuosos play a nine-day programme of classical concerts. 


January sees the International Hot Air Balloon Festival at Château-d’Oex where you can watch dozens of hot air balloons fly over the snow-capped mountains and view a spectacular event. Of course, winter festivities are not complete without a Christmas market, and Saanen’s will be sure to delight.


Stay at Ultima Gstaad and discover all of the Winter Events in Gstaad.
