With the new NEAT Lötschbergbasis Tunel you can get here even faster with public transport!

By train / postbus

The closest large railway station is in Brig or Visp. From there, Post buses run regularly to car-free Saas-Fee (approx. one-hour direct journey). There are hourly connections until 22:28 in the evening from Brig, and until 23.40 from Visp.

Drop off your luggage at the railway station counter in your town and pick it up at the Post bus station at the post office in Saas-Fee.


Car drivers from the north can travel via Bern through the Lötschberg Tunnel (car transport service), while those from the east will use the Furka Pass (or car transport service), and those from the south will travel over the Simplon Pass. If you are coming from western Switzerland, you will reach the Saas Valley via Lausanne, passing through the Rhone Valley until you reach Visp.
