Hi, I've been following the site for a while, but this is my first post. I'm planning a trip to Switzerland next summer (2021), and my wife and I will be taking the Golden Pass line from Montreux to Wengen on July 26, leaving in the morning. (We'll then spend a week in Wengen hiking and whatnot.) I was thinking it might be nice to stop in Gstaad for a few hours, including lunch at Charly's, mid-trip.
Just by accident, however, I recently learned that July 26, 2021 is also the first day of the annual Swiss Open tennis tournament in Gstaad. So my question is: is this is a good thing or not? Will it be fun seeing all the tournament-related activity? Or will it be a madhouse? I know this sort of thing is subjective, but if anyone has been to Gstaad during the tournament, I'd appreciate hearing about your experience. Also, if I decide Gstaad will be too busy that day, can anyone suggest a nice lunch stop somewhere along this stretch of the Golden Pass line? Or are we better off just waiting until we get to the Jungfrau area?
