Take me to the highest lunch!

MY CITY: Saas-Fee, Valais, Switzerland
Name: Chantal Imseng
Born: 1980
Profession: Marketing Manager
Where do you live? Saas-Fee, Switzerland

Why Saas-Fee? For the best skiing in winter and for the best hiking in summer! It’s in the heart of the Alps surrounded by 18 four thousand meter peaks! Very high alpine and impressive landscape with glaciers to touch, for example in the ice pavilion.

My early memory: My first skiing experiences when I was 3 years old.

My favourite place to eat: The world’s highest revolving restaurant named “Three Sixty” up on 3,500 meters altitude, where I enjoy my lunch while the most amazing panorama is passing by the window: From Milano in Italy to the Allalin covered in ice and snow all year round and to the Dom, with it’s 4545 meters altitude, the highest mountain standing completely on Swiss ground. The restaurnat rotate 360 degrees in an hour, the place for high and fine dining – for the highest lunch! https://www.threesixty-saasfee.com/

What do you eat there? Beef burger with wholegrain bread and sweet potatoes fries, everything homemade!

Meet the locals: PicPic Bar next to the supermarket Coop.

My favourite bar: The Popcorn bar is the legendary place for wild parties – at Shop Bar Club Hotel, Obere Dorfstrasse 6, Saas-Fee. www.popcorn.ch

Best place for a first date? Take the gondola up to Spielboden, where you can feed the tame marmots with carrots and peanuts, they are so cute! Then have a gourmet meal at the Spielboden restaurant, afterwards hike down to the village of Saas-Fee. www.spielboden.ch

My secret place: Take the gondola up to Kreuzboden and rent a Monster scooter. Ride halfway down to the Triftalp, where you can experience how they produce alpine cheese and even buy some! Than continue the ride down to Saas-Grund. More information on www.saas-fee.ch

My best advice: This summer the cable ways and the bus between the four villages in the Free Repulic of Holidays is free if you stay a minimum of two nights. www.saas-fee.ch/highlights

My favourite shop: Alprausch is a fashion shop in front of the supermarket Coop, where you can buy cute clothes in an alpine chique design! Very Swiss and trendy! Alprausch Shop. Untere Dorfstrasse 42, Saas Fee, Switzerland. Tel +41 27 508 04 64 Web: shop.alprausch.com

Taxi or other local transport? Saas-Fee is a car free village, so take a ride on the electric train “Allalino”.
