Brig – (Brigerbad) – Visp – Stalden-Saas – Saas-Fee
The Saas-Fee route runs from Brig via Visp into the Saas Valley as far as Saas-Fee.
The car-free Saas-Fee lies at 1,800 metres above sea level, surrounded by 18 four-thousand-metre peaks! In summer, numerous excursion destinations and hiking opportunities await you. Our marmots are probably the cutest residents of Saas-Fee, and they like nothing more than being fed nuts and carrots all summer long (at either Spielboden or Stafelwald). In winter, Saas-Fee attracts visitors with its fantastically prepared slopes.
Mittelallalin at 3,445 metres
The world’s highest funicular railway transports you to the Mittelallalin, situated at 3,445 metres, where the largest ice pavilion in the world can be found. Experience the Fee Glacier up close! The Allalin revolving restaurant rotates a full 360 degrees in an hour and offers a unique view of the surrounding peaks.

Mattmark Dam Reservoir – a place of natural power
The Mattmark Dam is Europe’s largest earth dam and can be found in the south of the Saas Valley. The reservoir, which is used to produce electricity, is a place of natural power that intrigues visitors – not only for its technical details, but also for its picturesque setting.
