Easter 2011 in Gstaad still has some buzz
Wondering around Gstaad this Easter Saturday, we bumped into a surprising number of chalet owners, most of them hanging out with Claudio at Scheufele's wine shop. Between them and the day-trippers, there was a surprising amount of life on the Promenade. Seems like with the good weather, some are choosing the mountains over the beach this Easter. Also might have something to do with the rather bizarre holiday schedule at the JFK School in Saanen, where classes for the spring term began on last Monday April 18.
In any event, when you do venture into town over the coming days, you'll find the parking lot across from the cinema closed for three weeks from Tuesday April 26 2011. The trash depository is being moved to the Carparkplatz Tschieneli, which is normally the bus parking lot next to the river when you turn into Gstaad on the Oberbort side. Oddly the note from the Gemeinde didn't mention alternative parking, so we'd recommend the same bus parking lot, the Litzi parking garage across the street, or for the exercise-challenged amongst you, just use the more expensive Bahnhof railway station parking.
