A few days in Saas-Almagell

A few days in Saas-Almagell

After Zermatt, we went to Saas-Almagell, a little town close to Saas-Fee but without all the stress (shopping, tons of tourists). Markus did continue his snowboard lesson, while we went for a hike. We stayed at the Hotel Christiania, this little Hotel was full of surprises. As we checked in, the lady was wondering why we didn’t book HP like everyone else. Well, we never do and asked why we should do it here? The explanation was very convincing, you get at least a 4-course menu for as little as 20,- SFr. this didn’t leave us with much of a choice and we booked the additional dinner. We never regret it, the food was just fabulous, the setting very elegant and the service just like home. The second surprise was the 14 days ago opened Spa area, with whirlpool, sauna, steam sauna, some exercise equipment (after skiing the whole day?). Overall a place we would recommend without any hesitation. After a much to short time, we had to return to Basel, we will be back for sure…
