The Mittelallalin (3456 m) is a minor summit below the Allalinhorn situated above Saas Fee. This place is well known for the revolving restaurant which is the highest in the world and a glacier cave.

Access[edit]

Mittelallalin can be reached easily with a cable car from Saas Fee to the Felskinn intermediate station and finally to the top with the Metro Alpin, the highest funicular in the world.[1]

Ski and mountain-climbing[edit]

The Mittelallalin is also an all year round ski area (between 1,800 and 3,600 m in winter, Fee Glacier in summer). From there the ascent of Allalinhorn (4,027 m) is very popular and can be done in just two hours.
