Gstaad is nothing special - personally I wouldn't stay there. There are nice hotels in all the places along that valley - including Chateau d'Oex, Saanen and Saanenmoser. Travel is by the MOB railway (but there is a bus until June on the section being rebuilt around Montbovon)

Hi arnabghosh,

You'll want to check the timetable to see if the travel you want to do each day works for you. I don't think it is an issue but everyone has their own ideas of what someone can/wants to do in a day. :)

You can enter Gstaad to Bern via Fribourg in the timetable to find trip details and schedules as well as your return trip: Bern to Spiez to Zweisimmen to Gstaad.

We have a list of recommended hotels for Gstaad noted here for you.

I agree - Gstaad apart from a very nice bakery shop doesn't have much to offer in my opinion especially in the summer. Went there 2 years ago on a day trip by train when staying at Wiklderswil in June. Would much prefer to stay in the Simmental Valley somewhere on route to Spiez. Wonderful scenery and is great in the spring with the wild flowers coming in to full bloom that time of year.
