HOSTELLERIE ALPEN ROSE
This beautiful chalet was once the favorite of the Royal Family of Monaco. Monika von Siebenthal and her family run a superb restaurant and Monica offers seminars in relaxation, meditation and massage.
We see how traditional mountain cheeses are made, and visit two famous restaurants where they feature cheese dishes- raclette and fondue.
Alpine Folk Art
Swiss farmers spent the winter painting their furniture and houses, and doing decoupage, an intricate form of paper cutting. We visit a museum to see the finest examples of this work and meet an artist at work.
Alpine Helicopter and Hot-air Balloon Excursions
The best way to see the Alps is from the air. We take viewers on an exciting helicopter ride up a glacier to have a picnic in a chalet, and we go on a hot air balloon ride over charming villages.
The Palace Hotel
The Palace is one of the original great hotels of the world, and when it was built it turned Gstaad from a sleepy village into a jet-set paradise. We see what attracts the super-rich and famous.
