Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It’s a long and winding road (with room for only one vehicle to pass, at times), however the trip is entirely worth it. The surrounding area is great for a hike and will be exceptionally worth it for landscape photographers to see

We did this hike unknowingly, poor planning my part but worth it! Make sure you have your camera, good hiking or trekking shoes, water, sunscreen, hat and sunglasses. When you do any of the trails (from Wispile or up and around from Lauenen or Lauenensee), its worth it. When we saw the views from up top and then the lake, wow! My husband went swimming in the lake (its pretty cold) but he's swedish so he enjoyed the refreshing cold water. I watched and took photos (haha). If you don't plan on hiking up the trails, you can simply drive there or take a bus from Launen or Gstaad. It's about 20-30minutes most. Easy and simple; inexpensive too. Its a great place for families with kids to BBQ or eat at the cafe. Enjoy.

We spent a couple of hours walking around this area. We are not so young anymore but this is an easy place to stroll around. Young and old can enjoy Lake Lauenen. There were
young families having picnics We enjoyed a nice lunch at the restaurant. This is truly a beautiful spot, not to be missed

Enjoyed a relatively easy afternoon 2.5 hours hike from Lauenen with kids (8-10) to the Geltenhutte, with stunning views, relaxed overnight stay and good food. Despite a full house at peak season, the hut was well run and all hickers civilised and friendly. We were one of the last to depart the next day around 10am, when other hickers were already arriving.

A family owned restaurant with fresh traditional fare including chilled white wine and home made ruhbarb pie! Delicious and friendly and excellent service. Beautiful views and relaxing atmosphere.

More of a large pond. Not worth a special trip. There is a bus service from Gstaad. Its pleasant enough, we visited as part of a hike down from Wispile and took the bus back to town.

The Launenensee is a real gem of a spot tucked away in the mountains, complete with sweeping meadows, a majestic waterfall and a rustic restaurant to rest your feet. You can take one of three routes by car, postbus or feet! The high route is a little tricky for cars since it turns into a single track road. If you are nervous with heights stick to the public car parking at the Hotel Alpenland. You can walk the route in passing streams, horses and beautiful authentic chalets. Make time for this little adventure on a sunny day. You won’t be disappointed.

A perfect place to come to cool down and chill out. You can take a bus (amazing given the narrow mountain roads!) then a short flat walk to lake.
Please note, the small pond is NOT the actual lake!! It is behind this. We made this mistake. You can swim here and lie down on your towel and feel close to nature. No luxuries it’s not that kind of place. Dogs welcome
Have lunch at the wonderful restaurant. Family run with even the children helping out. Salad buffet and puds set out to choose from. Fabulous perfect croute au fromage yummy.
Even though it poured, everyone huddled under parasols. It was wonderful
