Fairy tale week Saas Valley

26 - 31 July 2020


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.
