Gstaad Shopping – Luxury in the Middle of the Alps
The moment we hear “Gstaad, Switzerland”, we imagine luxury, skiing, fondue, and “Palace” or the other way around.
It doesn’t occur to us that “Gstaad = shopping,” though you can enjoy shopping here almost at its fullest if you want to do it surrounded by beauty and nature, but not the crowds of craving shopaholics like in Milan or Paris.
To start with, you can enjoy staying in Gstaad not only in winter and have a wonderful time even if you are not a ski fan. Come in summer and enjoy jogging. Not up for sports at all? Go shopping! By the way, it burns calories no worse than jogging. “British scientists” confirm.
Start with the main shopping street, la Promenade, head to the boutique “Bach Sign” and make a fashion statement, thanks to a wide range of hot designer names, including even Mathew Williamson. Another place to shop hot designers is “Trois Pommes – The Store for Women & Men”; there, you’ll find the hottest and the latest from Alaia, Alanui, Alexander Mc Queen, Alexandre Vauthier, Anjuna, Balenciaga, F.r.s. · Givenchy, Khrisjoy, Le Silla, R 13, Saint Laurent, Zimmermann.
Falling for something more “eternal” and classy? You are more than welcome to “Louis Vuitton” on Wispillenstrasse or “Hermes” at Chalet Central.
“Cartier Joailliers,” “Adler Joalliers,” and “Villiger” will be happy to embrace you and add some sparkle and timeless luxury watches to your outfit.
Got a bit tired? Stop and opt for a coffee at the Olden Hotel bar (you will feel at home!) or an incomparable chocolate cake at the pastry shop “R” on Viktoriastrasse. With its constantly renewed admirable menu, you can also go for lunch or even dinner on the 16th in Saanen.
If you are cloyed with famous brands and consider buying a Prada dress or a Rolex watch in the middle of the Alps, inconceivably weird, you can stop in the traditional craft corner and find charming souvenirs of your time in Gstaad.
Have a look at your new watch (though the old ones are also acceptable), and let us head to the place you have no chance to miss in Gstaad.
Boho Chic Pieces You Can Find in Gstaad Only
