Happy Birthday Hedi Olden!

Wed, 23. Aug. 2017

The Olden is what it is today to a good part because of her, Hedi Donizetti, whom many of our readers will remember. She knew them all, the stars who frequented Gstaad. And she was not only their host but occasionally their duet partner. In July she celebrated her 90th birthday.



Happy birthday to you Hedi ! I was very young when my parents were taking me with them at l'Olden and I have the best memories of that time. I still think of you when I go, remembering you singing and missing the good old times of Gstaad. Thank you for having created one of the best places in Gstaad. It is very fortunate that l'Olden has survived the construction frenzy.
Stayed at the Olden in the 1960s, it was so great, had everything that is best about real Swiss hotels - classically comfortable, simple, and warmly welcoming. Like the old Alpina too. Gstaad has become perhaps too shiny.
