Fairy tale week Saas Valley

20 - 27 July 2019


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.

There are countless myths and legends surrounding the origin of our village’s name, Saas-Fee. Could it have something to do with the faeries (fairy is “Fee” in German) that are said to dwell in our forests? We’re not sure, but anyone who has taken a walk among the trees in the quiet hours of the morning or evening will agree that the idea doesn’t seem so far-fetched. Come and discover more about this and many other bewitching tales.

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 redesigned 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!
