The Chalet-Alpenhof apartment in Saas-Fee has been equipped with kosher facilities and Jewish visitors in mind. Most ski apartments are rented from Saturday to Saturday, but the Chalet-Alpenhof apartment is usually rented from Friday to Friday, to make it easier for observant Jewish families to vacation with us.
The apartment is equipped with meat and dairy dishes and utensils, and we are careful to keep them kosher. We have also provided time switches, a Shabbat kettle, hot plate, candlesticks, a kiddush cup and havdalah set, to make your Shabbat in Saas-Fee easier!
The nearest mikvah is in Lausanne (2 hours) – see this list of mikvaot in Switzerland. Groups of Jewish holiday-makers sometimes arrange minyanim in Saas-Fee, usually in the summer after Tisha B’Av.
