About The Gstaad Palace Wedding Venue

The Gstaad Palace was one of several five-star resorts created after the influx of guests to the area, thanks to the newly constructed railway. It opened its doors in 1913 and has navigated its fair share of highs and lows thanks to multiple world wars and the economic booms and crashes they incurred. While its popularity has waxed and waned over the past century, it has always remained a beacon of hospitality and indulgence for guests worldwide and still is to this day. It’s also been family-owned for three generations, and the love for this incredible property is evident in every way it is run and maintained. 

Today, the Gstaad Palace is a true gem of the region. Their 90 rooms and suites feature unique décor and furnishings with a design that blends alpine chic and British understatement. It’s home to various restaurants and dining establishments that offer honest, authentic dishes with regional ingredients inspired by some of the world’s most renowned cuisines. Gstaad Palace is also a haven for relaxation with an exquisite spa, an Olympic-sized outdoor and indoor pool, and multiple steam rooms and saunas. It’s a true destination for a luxury mountainside getaway.
