Tour description

The Chapel Trail to Saas-Fee visits a total of 15 small chapels and shrines (built 1708 – 1711) that portray the mysteries of the Psalter, or the three rosaries: the Joyous, the Sorrowful and the Glorious. Carl Zuckmayer also walked this beautiful trail between Saas-Grund and Saas-Fee on his very first visit to the village and, upon arrival, could never again bring himself to part from Saas-Fee and its majestic panorama.
The trail sets off from Saas-Grund towards Saas-Almagell, following the Saaser Vispa river until it reaches the Kapellenweg (Church Trail) camping grounds, where, shortly before reaching the imposing Fee gorge, it turns off towards Saas-Fee. Along the path, hikers constantly encounter enchanting chapels, each portraying the life story of Jesus Christ in pictures, and spectacular views of the Fee gorge. The main attraction on this trail is the Gnadenkapelle (Chapel of Mercy) “zur Hohen Stiege”, built in 1747. The trail ends behind the Saas Fee post office and bus terminal.


Church and chapel guide is available from all tourist offices in the Saas Valley.
