Pays-d’Enhaut: Alpine Gems

The Pays-d’Enhaut region in the Vaud Alps is an ideal destination for outings because it is so easy to reach. One day rarely suffices for visitors to discover its many natural and cultural treasures, so they usually extend or repeat their stays in this authentic mountain region.

Pays-d’Enhaut is easily reached from Montreux by car or on the GoldenPass train. One hour in a standard, panoramic or Belle Epoque carriage is enough to reach the villages of Château-d’Oex, Rossinière and Rougemont, after a journey through the countryside by Lake Geneva's shores.

An authentic ambience prevails in the Pays-d’Enhaut villages, known for the architecture of their traditional wooden chalets with delicate sculptures. Another typical art form − the renowned skill of paper-cutting – can be discovered at the Pays-d’Enhaut Museum.

All year round, Pays-d’Enhaut entices enthusiasts of various sports: skiing, tobogganing or snowshoeing as well as rafting, climbing and hiking in the Parc Gruyère-Pays-d’Enhaut. Scattered throughout this protected area are Alpine pasture huts where the famous L’Etivaz AOP cheese is made.

As the Swiss hot-air ballooning capital, Château-d’Oex stages a yearly international festival when hundreds of colourful balloons fill the skies.
