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!
Eddie's adventures on the Spielboden
Eddie, the marmot, lives with his family on the Spielboden in Saas-Fee. One morning he is woken up by the chirping of the birds. Everything seems as usual: Eddie looks for delicious blossoms for breakfast and waits for the human children to play hide and seek, but he’s immediately tired again and lies down in the grass. Then suddenly, a little mouse who wants to experience something on the Spielboden appears. Although Eddie would rather go back to sleep, he goes on an adventure with the little mouse.
Available at the tourist office and in the online shop.
