Gstaad Menuhin Festival

One of the biggest classical music festivals in Switzerland, the Gstaad Menuhin Festival has delighted audiences with unique music performances since 1957. Its leitmotif is ‘making music with friends’. The world-renowned festival was founded by Yehudi Menuhin, one of the greatest violin virtuosos of the 20th century, who made it what it is today: a wonderful tradition. Developing the festival further, Director Christoph Müller subsequently combined tradition with innovation, stars with young talents and chamber music with symphony concerts, successfully taking the festival into the 21st century.

Enjoy first-rate spine-tingling concerts with top-class artists along with exclusive VIP privileges at our official festival hotel. A once-in-a-lifetime experience!
