part 1 - Saas Almagell / Switzerland

Saas Almagell is the southernmost municipality of the Saas valley and is on 1600 meters above sea level. A family-friendly place with idyllic atmosphere, which is very widely known not least of three of ski stars: Pirmin, Heidi and Silvan Zurbriggen.

The mountain village offers owing to its beautiful side valleys a broad and various hiking net to the guest. The artificial lake Mattmark with its well accessible, nearly flat round way is a popular goal. The historicalpregnant area loads for hiking in. The oldest still existing place in Saas Almagell is in Furggstalden. Here you can find old Valais houses in their most original forms.

We stayed in the hotel Alpenhof. Brothers and sisters Anthamatten & Zurbriggen offered us a cosy room and each evening a opulent four-course menu. It was simply fantastic. We felt at each time simply phantastic in a family environment.
