St. Stephan is a radiant jewel with its historic church from the 12th Century nestled carefully among the town’s many traditional farmhouses.

Summertime rambles by hiker and naturalist alike allow fascinating discoveries in the unique and remote hanging valleys like the Fermeltal and the many rich, alpine meadows. Traditional farming and ancient customs such as yodeling and alphorn playing form the roots of the local inhabitants.

In the wintertime St. Stephan is the trailhead for breathtaking ski tours on the Albristhorn and Wistätthorn. There is also a direct access to the skiing region «Gstaad Mountain Rides».
