Holidays in Saas-Fee - Switzerland
Traffic-free picturesque village in one of the most beautiful high valleys in Switzerland
Lying in one of the most beautiful high valleys in Switzerland, the traffic-free picturesque glacier village of Saas-Fee has retained its old character with an abundance of charm. Your holiday needs are well catered for with a variety of shops, attractive bars, restaurants and narrow cobbled streets surrounded by spectacular scenery including the ‘Dom’, Switzerland’s highest mountain. The Metro Alpin, the world’s highest underground train, takes you up to the world’s highest revolving restaurant at 3,500m and along with cable cars and gondola cableways offers you some of the finest views and the clearest air you can breathe. Welcome to the Pearl of the Alps!
FREE Cableways and Post buses
This summer you can enjoy free use of all mountain cableways (excluding the Metro Alpin and Hohsaas) the Postbuses in Saas-Fee and the Saas Valley. (Summer skiing not included). A must among them is the Allalin, which boasts three world records - the highest underground funicular, the highest revolving restaurant and the largest ice grotto. Or why not feed the tame marmots around the Spielboden mountain station? Also well worth a visit are Lake Kreuzboden - set amid beautiful, rugged mountain scenery - and the lovely panoramic terrace on Hannig mountain, also known as "Sonnenberg" or sunny mountain.
The Saas Valley offers hikers over 350km of trails and with free use of most of the cable cars it is great to plan your walks from each of the mountain stations. You will find the walks well marked with the average walking times also shown. The valley is an ideal base for some of the most beautiful tours of the region’s 4,000m peaks and there are many easy walks with a mountain restaurant ready to welcome you for a range of refreshments.
