The Château-d’Oex resort is committed to sustainable development

In Château-d’Oex, the wood-fired district heating project is back on the agenda.

The municipal council has authorised the town council to connect several municipal buildings to the district heating network by converting existing boiler rooms. An appropriation of CHF 525,000 has been released for this purpose.

Eventually, an installation should be built under the tracks of the Damon railway station. Wood chips from the forests of the Pays-d’Enhaut will be used as fuel.

Unforgettable experiences at Château-d’Oex

If you want to take a big jump, it’s possible here! Discover the activity of the pendulum jump, a giant swing of more than 100 metres. Once you’re hooked on this kind of swing over the canyon of the Torneresse river, don’t think twice and take the plunge! The sensation is similar to that of bungee jumping. You will feel an acceleration accompanied by centrifugal force, all without any kind of shock. Great sensations guaranteed!
