General Information About Saas-Fee

"The Pearl of the Alps lies on a high plateau of the Saas Valley, above the other three Saas communities. Saas-Grund in the center of the valley is an ideal starting point for the high altitude trails. Saas Almagell's main attraction is Mattmark, a natural dam. Saas Balen is home to the Late Baroque circular church, a building of national significance, and the roaring Fell Brook in the center of the village.

Saas Valley is distinguished by 350 kilometers of thematic and hiking trails as well as special offerings for families and children. The ski region has 150 kilometers of pistes of all levels of difficulty, which are considered to be snow-assured. Twenty-two railways lead to the pistes, including the well-known Metro Alpin (Alpine Metro), which takes passengers to the world's highest revolving restaurant"

"From 3,454m to 4,027m in two hours - the ascent of the Allalinhorn is short and simple with a guide, but still an incredible alpine experience.

Stand on a 4,000m summit at some point in your life - the Allalinahorn can make this dream come true. Experienced mountain guides take hikers safely across snow fields and short rock sections. And all this in only two hours from the top station of the Metro Alpin to the summit, 500m higher up. The effort is worth it - the panorama from Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn to the Jungfrau massif is a just reward."
