Fairy tale week

17 - 21 July 2021

Fairy tales are one of the oldest forms of literature in the world and have been delighting readers of all ages for centuries. The Saas Valley’s Fairy-Tale Week is dedicated entirely to this phenomenon. Immerse yourself in enchanting worlds of wonder, sorcery, heroes and heroines.

Family activities in summer

This summer the "Saas Valley Fairy tale week" will be staged

Our guests should be reminded of the fairy tale theme throughout the valley this week and thus immerse themselves all the more in this world.

Countless myths and stories entwine themselves around the origin of our village name Saas-Fee. Could it have something to do with the fairies that supposedly romp about in our forests? We are not quite sure. Anyone who has ever taken a short walk here in the quiet morning or evening hours will find this idea not entirely undecided. Get involved in this and other wondrous stories.

Legendary ideas for a magical holiday

A short walk along the Fairy-Tale Trail close to the fire place Melchboden is a real treat for all fans of fabulous tales. The trail is open year-round and signs placed along the path will tell you why, for example, no more serpents can be found by the road from Saas-Almagell to Saas-Fee.

There are also plenty of mystical and spectacular experiences to be had at the Ice Pavilion. Journey deep into a secret and beautiful ice palace at an altitude of 3,500 m. Discover the rich and glittering treasures hidden beneath the thick ice of the Fee Glacier, guarded by giant ice dragons, spiders and bears. Welcome to a very magical place!
