Swiss Summer: Sleep at 5,000 Feet at the Walig Hut From Gstaad Palace

Walig Hut, Gstaad Palace, SwitzerlandWinter isn’t the only time for an alpine adventure in the mountains of Switzerland. The summer brings a unique opportunity to bed down in a traditional hut 5,000 feet above Gstaad. Built in 1786, the Walig Hut served as a seasonal retreat for local cattle farmers, and is one of the few of these traditional accommodations that still exists today. Gstaad Palace has renovated the Walig Hut so that guests can experience the authentic ambience in a rustic-chic hideaway. You’ll take in heart-stopping views of the Bernese Alps while enjoying the wood-burning fireplace, kitchen, dining room, and bedroom. (Solar electricity provides the power for the lighting.)

It’s possible for guests of the five-star hotel to combine a summer stay at both Gstaad Palace and the Walig Hut with the hotel’s three-day “Alpine Adventure Getaway” package. There’s a bevy of recreational activities available in the summer months, including hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, horseback riding, canoeing, river rafting, paragliding and Jeep safaris.
