The highest mountains in Switzerland await visitors to the Saas Valley. Saas-Fee, Saas-Grund, Saas-Balen and Saas-Almagell all offer an astonishing array of enjoyable, sporting, family-oriented and adventurous holiday activities. The valley’s mild climate and stunning glaciers create a magical setting for any holiday.
“Then suddenly you are standing in front of this amazing view – I’ve never seen anything like it anywhere. It’s as if you are simultaneously standing at the end of the world and at its origin, at its beginning and in its centre.” These were the stirring words German playwright Carl Zuckmayer, who spent his last years in Saas-Fee, used to describe his first impressions of the Saas Valley.
The sight of the snow-capped peaks of Switzerland’s highest mountains glowing in the sunset is truly an awe-inspiring sight – an imposing natural setting that surpasses all expectations. The region also has numerous Alpine wellness facilities where you can boost your energy levels and rediscover that lust for life.
In Saas-Fee and the Saas Valley, the latest technology stands side by side with the natural elements. The Metro Alpin funicular railway travels through the mountains to the highest station in Europe, at 3,500 metres above sea level. And on a clear day you can see all the way to Milan from Allalin. The Saas Valley has activities to suit everyone, from families to top athletes, bon vivants, adventurers and those in need of some rest and relaxation. Thanks to its southern location, it also enjoys 300 days of sun every year!
