Metro Alpin

The highest underground train in the world.

The Metro Alpin is the world’s highest-altitude underground train. From Saas-Fee, the valley station can be reached on either the Alpin Express or the Felskinn cableway. The Metro Alpin then carries visitors a further 476 m in altitude from the Felskinn plateau to the Mittelallalin – located roughly 3,500 m a.s.l. There is a midway junction where the funicular stops on its first ascent of the day to drop off mountaineers. A tunnel leads from there directly to the Hohlaub glacier.


The highest revolving restaurant in the world at 3'500 meters above sealevel or 11'482 feet.
