Located in Switzerland’s upper Saane valley, this small, picturesque town is known across the globe as the World Alpine Capital of Hot Air Ballooning. Since 1979, balloonists from around the world gather in Chateau d’Oex for a week-long festival and competition during the last week of January.

If you’re looking to stay in a hostel, there are a number of options available in Chateau d’Oex, as well as in nearby Rougemont. While plenty of visitors to the villages of the Pays-d’Enhaut opt for a hostel experience, those seeking a traditional hotel stay can find appropriate accommodation.

Skiing is a popular activity among the locals, and visitors can easily access the La Braye ski station thanks to a cable car service that runs year-round, right through the heart of the community. Winter tourists can also enjoy snow-shoe treks, forested walking trails, and thrilling toboggan runs.

The beautiful landscapes of Chateau d’Oex also offer a wealth of opportunities for exploration throughout the summer. Rocky plateaus, forests, moors, and vibrant flora can be found just south of Chateau d’Oex in the largest nature conservation area within western Switzerland, La Pierreuse.

Culinary experiences are also abundant in Chateau d’Oex. Venturing out from your hostel or hotel, tourists can opt to visit one of the village’s fantastic restaurants – or check out Pays-d’Enhaut’s traditional Alpine huts to sample etivaz cheese, prepared in cauldrons over an open fire.
