The road through this rustic village leads down into the valley where the better-known Saas destinations are located. Those driving into Saas-Balen will inevitably find their eyes drawn to the Fellbach waterfall, which makes for an impressive natural spectacle as it thunders down to the rocks below. It is no less a majestic sight in the winter, when it is frozen into an ice sculpture; visitors at that time of year might also find their gaze alighting on the village ski lift.

A closer look reveals more gems, such as the round church ���Assumption Day���, a protected monument from the late Baroque period. Consecrated almost 200 years ago in 1812, it has lost none of its magical appeal and lends the ���Pearl of Serenity��� an almost divine air.

Summer
