Our guests’ top winter tips
Classic destinations within an hour
The world-famous cities of Montreux and Interlaken are just an hour away, or you can easily explore the unexpected treasures of Fribourg and Thun, even closer to us.
Full on, or time out?
From 10-pin bowling to swimming pools and sports halls, there’s plenty to do. Or relax in one of the many local spas, with a range of treatments and heated outdoor mineral pools.
Get a taste of the region
Visit an independent cheesemaker or Switzerland’s most popular chocolate factory (complete with tastings!). Discover our local markets and specialist shops, full of unique gifts and souvenirs.
Local restaurants specialise in fondue and raclette, and meringues with double cream. We can recommend many great restaurants in the area.
There’s something for everyone in the village and around the beautiful Pays-d’EnHaut region, from adrenalin-filled extreme sports to a guided tour of the many traditional chalets. For families there are special activity offers in the GoKids family club (www.gokids.ch). You can find things to do in winter and in summer.
Find out more about Château-d’Oex and its attractions here, then when you arrive explore right from the hotel – we’re only 5 minutes from the centre by foot, so you don’t need a car to discover the village.
Whatever the weather, there’s lots to see and plenty to do. If you just can’t decide, ask at Reception and we’ll share some ideas for a great day out.
