High above Saas-Fee at an altitude of 3,500 m lies the entrance to the heart of the Fee Glacier. The Ice Pavilion was completely revamped in spring 2016. Visitors to the ice grotto can now experience an avalanche simulation with lighting effects and a shock wave that reverberates through their entire body.
A 70 meter long tunnel leads into the thousands of years-old ice of the amazing glacier - to what is most probably the world's largest ice pavilion. The over 5,500 cubic meter large grotto, located at the Mittelallalin stop of Metro Alpin, the subterranean Alpine train at an altitude of 3,456 meters above sea level, offers an in-depth view of the interior of the glacier. Various ice sculptures, alternating exhibitions and events make the ice grotto a real place of adventure.
Even reaching the ice grotto by means of the subterranean cable car Metro Alpin, which visitors board at the "Felskinn" station above Saas-Fee, is an adventure.
The large revolving restaurant “threes!xty” (360°) offers a full panoramic view of the surrounding mountainscape in an hour, while the cosy coffee bar serves trendy hot and cold drinks with relaxing background music.
The Allalinhorn (4,027m) gave the region its name. With the right equipment and the assistance of a mountain guide, any athletic climber can conquer this 4,000-metre peak with ease.
