The marmots are awake

Our marmots are probably the sweetest villagers in Saas-Fee. Explore the area of Spielboden or the Stafelwald, and you will likely come across marmots. They like to be fed with peanuts and carrots all summer long.

In winter, the cute rodents sleep peacefully in their burrows. The hibernation lasts between 6 and 8 months. The marmots are seen again from may and are looking forward to your visit! 

Adventures with Eddie

NEW: Marmot cable cars with Eddie's audio stories

From summer 2023, you can listen to the adventurous stories of the marmot Eddie in the Spielboden cable cars.

Murmeli Trail on Spielboden

At Spielboden, you can go on the Spielboden circular trail with Eddie, the funny marmot. On seven panels, you can learn exciting facts about the life of the marmots and, in the best case, even meet them in person.

Eddie's Viewpoint

Discover Eddie's favourite place and marvel at the mighty Fee glacier, among other things. Eddie tells you more about the impressive nature on an information board and via audio.
