Every time we visit Gstaad it gets better just like an old wine. Switzerland though known as scenic heaven on earth, this area brings the best of it both in winter and summer time. Great valley, serene and cute village, beautiful surroundings and many breathtaking scenic places within just 30-40 minutes drive. I would certainly recommend Lauenensee. This was most memorable part of our Gstaad visit. One can reach their by car or Post bus. If you have a swiss pass, fare is covered up to village of Lauenen. Lauenensee is the next stop and this is mountain trail to be paid as add-on cost. The Lauenensee is lake surrounded by mountains, number of waterfalls you can spend a day in hiking, fishing and family picnic. It takes 45 minutes to take a stroll along the lake. Nearest location one can stay is at village of Lauenen. However I would recommend a day trip from Gstaad to this place.
