Fondue Land Gstaad

Gstaad Fondueland is the perfect place to enjoy a delicious fondue outdoors amidst splendid Alpine scenery.

Four outsize caquelons, each offering space for up to eight people, provide a great setting for a sociable dining experience against a unique panoramic backdrop. You can get there on foot or by bike, or choose your very own spot in nature in which to dine. This is made possible thanks to the nostalgically designed fondue rucksack. It contains all the ingredients for a delicious outdoor dining experience.

Availability Today (Saturday) open

The fondue rucksack can be ordered from the dairies during their opening times the day before. Fondue rucksacks can be collected from the Berghaus Wispile during the operating times of the Wispile gondola lift.
