Gruben-Winterwanderweg

This continual downhill run from Schönried to Gstaad and varied hike for enthusiastic hikers boasts views of towering mountain peaks, idyllic meadows and the historic heart of the Saanenland.
Schönried (1,230 metres above sea level), a sunny mountain terrace in the region of Gstaad, is the starting point for this winter hike that takes you towards Gstaad itself. The village is nestled between its local mountain, the Horneggli, and Rellerli.

This easy winter hiking trail runs along the foot of the Hornberg and maintains a continual gentle descent to Gstaad. As you cross meadows and pathways you have beautiful views of Saanen, the historical heart of the Saanenland. This village, with its cosy chalets dating from the 15th to the 18th century, is on the Inventory of Swiss Heritage Sites. Not to be missed: the Rüblihorn, or as the Saanenlanders call it, Le Rubli, towering majestically into the sky.

The second part of the hike brings you close to the railway tracks. With a bit of luck you will see the GoldenPass panoramic train with its famous panorama cars gliding its way through the idyllic snow-covered landscape. Soon you catch sight of your destination and within a few minutes you reach the chalet village of Gstaad and its special landmark, the Gstaad Palace with its four striking towers. Once again, the hiking trail above Gstaad takes you across the railway line before you reach the village with its charming and inviting promenade.
