Replacement of Lehnen viaduct

Thu, 29. Apr. 2021

Since early April, Palacestrasse has only been open to traffic on one lane in the area of the Palace curve.

The reason for this is the replacement of the Lehnen viaduct. On the well-secured construction site in rather impassable terrain, excavators of various sizes are currently moving around and are busy with earthworks. Traffic in the construction area is controlled by traffic lights.

A diversion has been signalled for pedestrians. They can reach the upper part of Palacestrasse via the hiking trail. The construction work is expected to last until the end of October.

Construction work will be suspended during the high season.

Gstaad Palace mourns the death of Ernst Andrea Scherz

The Gstaad Palace mourns the death of Ernst Andrea Scherz (1939-2021). The doyen of the international luxury hotel industry, who among other things helped to establish the worldwide alliance "The Leading Hotels of the World", passed away after a long illness on 13 May 2021 at the age of 81. He managed the legendary Gstaad hotel from 1968 to 2001 – before handing it over to his son Andrea Scherz, who today is the third generation to carry on his father's legacy as general manager and owner.
