I am interested in visiting Switzerland in winter, but I am also looking for staying at a place where I can enjoy outdoor swimming. 'The Cambrian' in Adelboden is the only hotel I could find through online research which can boast an outdoor heated swimming pool which can be used in winter and it has a great view as well.

Are there any other 5/4 star hotels in Switzerland where you can enjoy a heated outdoor swimming pool in winter?

    While I don't know any particular hotels which fit your criteria, I would have a look at thermal baths. Here's a list of those in the region of Valais. I personally know the stations of Leukerbad, Ovronnaz and Saillon and at least the two former have public baths with very nice outdoor areas with great views (if you are into mountain panoramas). I'm not sure if the hotels there have their own thermal pools, but it might be worth looking into something in those towns.

    You do realise the typical winter temperatures (and snowfall) in Switzerland, and the extreme cost this would involve, right?

    There's also Hotel Villa Honegg and quite a few others. Doing a Google Image search for switzerland hotel winter heated pool and then picking out interesting candidates from there seems to work pretty well.

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's asking for a list, or several unique answers. If a person posts one correct pool, is the OP going to accept it? Doesn't seem so in current format.

    But we'll see how we go. I'll have a look now and litmus test this, I'm sure I could find another hotel.

The Gstaad Palace Hotel fits your needs. It has both indoor and outdoor pools, and it states that the outdoor pool is available in winter ("including winter outdoor pool").

The hotel is a 5-star luxury hotel, and is situated in Gstaad, a village in the canton of Bern, in Switzerland.

  • This one and the Villa Honegg mentioned in the comments are the only ones that fit the criteria it seems. Will accept the answer if no other answers come in a while.
