Fondue Land Gstaad

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

Seven outsize caquelons, each with space for up to eight people, serve as sociable settings for enjoyment with an unparalleled panoramic view. You can set off on foot or with snowshoes, or choose your very own place to enjoy the great outdoors. This is made possible thanks to the nostalgically designed fondue rucksack. It contains all the ingredients for a delicious outdoor dining experience.

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.
