I adore jigsaw puzzles. I can lose myself in them, spending hours utterly absorbed as the image reveals itself piece by piece by piece. Years before we moved to the Saanenland I was given a large puzzle of a Swiss chalet.
There will be a touch of Hollywood in Gstaad soon. Or a bit more than just a touch… Roman Polanski will settle at the Gstaad Palace with his team to shoot a new movie: The Palace.
Gstaad bids visitors to ‘Come up, Slow down’. A host of enticing activities awaits: spa days at fancy hotels, tranquil walks along meandering trails or exhilarating sessions of winter sports, but quite by chance we found another way to slow down.
Ruedi Perreten from Feutersoey came within ten metres of an ermine near his barn. The farmer is happy about the presence of the small predator: “Where there are ermines, there are no mice.”
Changing the shape of the editorial does have a reason. We chose a more square shape this time to allow space for the ad below, which is important for the magazine. To the ones who actually read the editorial, I feel like adding a word or two.

Anzeiger von Saanen reader Sven Pieren captured the perfect morning after the heavy snowfall in mid-December with a view on the iconic Gummfluh and Rubli.

"Many snails have already found their way into my garden, but I have never seen one like this before!" wrote Anzeiger von Saanen reader Silvia Reichenbach from Lauenen about this splendid specimen.
Wait, can this be the last editorial of this summer? Must be because of the relativity thing. Relativity of time – a wonderful concept to toy around with. Not as a theoretical physicist, way too complicated. No, I mean as a layman.
When I was nine months old my parents entered me in a baby contest. I placed third. As more than two others were vying for the honour of top baby, I consider this a respectable result. It turns out I’m not the only member of our family with beauty show credentials, either.
Scuttling nightmare for bees: the warm weather at the beginning of June lured them out of their hiding places: the crab spiders, which are feared by bees and wasps. Pictured is one of the 2,155 species found worldwide.
After a long period of digital learning, everybody loved outdoor camps!
It is no secret that hotels and restaurants in the Saanenland are amongst the best. They regularly make it into the headlines of national and international titles.
