Kreuzboden 2400 m

A family mountain

The Kreuzboden (2,405 m above sea level) above Saas-Grund is easily accessible by cable car and lives up to its name as a family mountain. In Hohsi-Land, children can let off steam. Be it on the suspension bridge, the climbing walls or other equipment. Our water park is also a great place to cool off on a hot summer's day.

"Can I touch the animals?". This question is familiar to many parents. Children don't just want to watch animals from a distance; they also want to be able to touch and stroke them. The petting zoo at the Kreuzboden mountain station offers this opportunity.

And that's not all! Since 2021, Kreuzboden has had a Bike Skills Park for the whole family. You can either drive back to Saas-Grund on the monster scooters or set off on a wide variety of hiking trails like the Alpine Flower Promenade or the Wellness and Yoga Trail.

Near the Kreuzboden mountain station is the beautiful Kreuzbodensee (lake of Kreuzboden). A raft takes you from one side to the other, and you can enjoy the constant view of the highest mountains in Switzerland.
