Saas-Fee - Hannig - Melchboden - Bärenfalle (Fairytale Trail)
Start at the church in Saas-Fee and make the short climb up to Schäferstube restaurant. The path then continues above the village to Hohnegg. From there, it's not far to the idyllic forest clearing at Melchboden, where there is an ideal rest-stop with a picnic and barbecue area next to a small lake. Carry on along the Fairytale Trail and you might even bump into a Gotwergeni - or dwarf! After that it's just a few minutes to Bärenfalle. From there the trail takes you to the Wildi area and back to Saas-Fee.

Along the way there are several rest stops close to the babbling mountain brook.

Hohsi-Land A world for kids in the Republic of Holidays.

In summer

The whole of the Free Republic of Holidays, Saas-Fee is like an adventure playground for children. But we take the fun even further at Kreuzboden, above Saas-Grund. This day-trip hot spot, easily reached by gondola, is not only a starting point for numerous wonderful hikes; it's also home to a little something for our youngest citizens, too: Hohsi-Land. The park includes a playground, farm animals, a water park, a themed walkway and a climbing frame with a 13m-long slide.

In winter

Kreuzboden above Saas-Grund offers the perfect sunlit spot for skiing and snowboarding ‒ and not just for grown-ups. Kids can discover all the fun of winter sports here too in their very own piste area, with a magic carpet conveyor, racetrack, seesaws, obstacle course, and much more! The offering for the world champions and Olympic gold medallists of tomorrow is topped off by a kid's hut with bathroom facilities where they can stay and play.
