Saas Fee

Deservedly known as ‘the Pearl of the Alps’ Saas-Fee is a beautiful, high Alpine village with an excellent snow record and glacier skiing. It’s sometimes said that the quaint resort of Saas-Fee resembles a historic Zermatt – equally charming but with a slower pace of life and a more traditional ambience.

 

The enchanting, traffic-free village is surrounded by a magnificent backdrop of dazzling blue glaciers and towering peaks, including the Dom - the highest mountain located entirely within Switzerland. The glacial ski terrain is both picturesque and wild. It is a truly stunning resort in which to ski, explore and admire the view.

 

The challenging ski areas of Saas-Grund and Saas-Allmagell, further down the valley, are included in the excellent Saas-Fee ski network. In and around Saas-Fee itself the delightful blue and red runs are ideal for beginner and intermediate skiers and boarders. And the excellent Morenia snowpark provides ample entertainment in the form of jumps and rails.

 

Saas-Fee caters for all ages. Families will appreciate the friendly atmosphere as well as the fantastic, large beginners’ area in the village centre. There is plenty of entertainment to keep you occupied off the slopes, from the state of the art Aqua Allalin pool and spa complex to the Feeblitz bobsleigh/rollercoaster. And après ski in the form of live music and lively bars, ranges from the sophisticated to the downright fun. It is a spectacular location for your winter holiday.

Things to do in resort

Restaurants, food and drink

The cuisine in Saas-Fee ranges from the Michelin starred to friendly pizzerias. On the mountain the world’s highest revolving restaurant, the Drehrestaurant Allalin, is surely a bucket list destination for its location alone. The delicious, traditional Swiss cuisine only makes it even more appealing.

The Schäferstube is a very popular restaurant just by the nursery slope. The traditional, cosy restaurant serves authentic Swiss dishes such as rösti and bratwurst. Simply delicious!

Close to the boarder with the Italian Monte Rosa Alps, it is unsurprising that Saas-Fee has a wealth of decent Italian restaurants. In the village, Del Ponte is an Inghams favourite. Great pizzas and friendly service mark this particular restaurant out. We can heartily recommend the formaggi pizza, excellent after a hard days skiing.

The gourmet Fletschhorn Restaurant has a Michelin star and serves a menu of high quality meals adapted to meet the season. Cheese and wine lovers will appreciate the huge selection of Swiss cheeses and the incredible wine cellar storing around 45,000 bottles.

Après, bars, clubs and nightlife

The après scene in Saas-Fee is fairly chilled, but that doesn’t mean that residents don’t know how to party, and bars and clubs can be become both quirky and lively. By far one of the quirkiest bars in resort is Nesti’s Ski Bar. This popular, lively retreat has mad décor and a surprisingly intimate atmosphere.

Also at the livelier end of the spectrum is Popcorn. By day, it’s a sports shop selling snowboarding apparel; at night it’s a popular clubbing venue with live music and cocktails.

One of our favourite spots in the town is the Larix Bar which is located really conveniently at the bottom of the pistes. The terrace of this après ski bar is an excellent place to unwind after a long day spent skiing.

For a more sophisticated après experience you should head to the stylish Burgener Skihutte. The fabulous décor in this classy wine bar attracts and older crowd looking for a more refined après experience.

Shopping

As a small village there isn’t abundant shopping to experience in Saas-Fee, but you should have no problems finding the essentials. Small supermarkets and locally run produce stores can supply you with snacks for the mountain and sports shops will provide you with rental equipment. There are even a few upmarket gift stores, such as the local jewellery boutique, so you can bring something back home for friends, family, or even yourself.

Spas and relaxation

The Aqua Allalin centre is a state of the art swimming pool and spa complex. In addition to saunas, baths and feature showers there is also a children’s pool and a waterslide making this wellness centre suitable for families.

Both the Hotel Schweizerhof Gourmet and Spa and Hotel Ferienart Resort and Spa have excellent wellness and facilities and indoor pools. The wellness facilities at the Schweizerhof are extensive and include a whirlpool, steam bath and relaxation room. The indoor pool at the Ferienart is particularly luxurious.

Arts, culture and events

The rich history of Saas-Fee is explored in the Saaser Museum, housed in an old wooden vicarage that dates back to 1732. As well as traditional artefacts, costumes and decorative crafts the museum houses a recreation of famous, local writer, Carl Zuckmayer’s study.

Saas-Fee hosts a number of sporting events throughout the winter. A particular highlight of the local calendar is the Ice Climbing World Cup which brings with it a great, bustling atmosphere and an amazing party vibe. This action packed sporting event takes place every January and welcomes athletes from across the world.

Starting at an altitude of 3,500 m on the Mittelallain glacier, the Downhill Glacier Bike Race is a spectacular sporting event full of exciting, high-speed action. The racers hurtle down an icy mountain course covering an elevation of 1,700m. You can simply spectate or sign up to participate on this crazy race which is held in mid-March.

Also making excellent use of the glacier are the Allalin Races, which are the highest downhill, glacier race in the world. This long established racing event is traditionally held towards the end of the ski season, around the end of March and beginning of April.
