Walks & Music at Gstaad Festival

Walks & Music at Gstaad Festival Overview

During our visit (9 – 15 Aug '20, from £ 3414 pp, max 14 pax) we attend 4 concerts of the Gstaad Menuhin Festival in Switzerland. Our 5 star hotel is the epitome of Swiss style and service levels (with meals to match) and a network of cable cars and little mountain railways enables us to enjoy easy daily walks in superb Alpine scenery.

Each summer the Swiss Alpine town of Gstaad is the setting for the Menuhin Festival, the inspirational legacy of one of the world’s greatest violinists, Yehudi Menuhin. The Festival, which has long been synonymous with musical excellence, is mostly held in the beautiful frescoed churches of the Saanenland region of the Swiss Bernese Oberland. During our week long visit we attend 4 Festival performances.

In the afternoons there is time to relax on the terrace, swim in one of the 2 heated pools or shop in the world class boutiques of Gstaad. Before a concert performance, we have an early dinner then a short vehicle transfer to the concert venue, returning to the hotel for cheese and dessert. There are some delicious Swiss wines to try, such as light, flowery Fendant made with the Chasselas grape or Oeil de Perdrix AOC, a Pinot Noir.
