The first edition of the tournament was played in 1915 at the Gstaad Palace Hotel, which was known at the time as the Royal Hotel, Winter & Gstaad Palace, and was organized in collaboration with the Lawn Tennis Club (LTC) Gstaad. The event was played on clay courts and was won by Victor de Coubasch.[2]

Gstaad is located 1,050 metres (3,450 feet) above sea level. It is the highest venue for ATP World Tour events in Europe, although lower than the Ecuador Open and the former Colombia Open, both held at the Andes.[2]
