The Nadelgrat - The holiday home near Grächen, Valais, Switzerland

The Nadelgrat holiday home
is situated at 1450 metres above sea level on the way to Grächen. The view of the Mattertal and the surrounding mountains is magnificent.
We offer a studio for max. 2 persons on the ground floor, a spacious 4.5 room flat for max. 6 persons on the 1st floor and a 3.5 room flat for max. 4 persons in the attic. This means that we can offer a bed for up to 12 people in the three flats.
All flats have a well-equipped kitchen and at least one bathroom with bath or shower. Each unit has its own living room with TV where you can meet with your family or guests for a cosy get-together. The 3.5 and 4.5 room flats have a balcony and the studio has an exit to the terrace.
In the garden our guests will also find a seating area and lawns for relaxing, playing sports or grilling a delicious meal on the barbecue.

The bus stop "St. Niklaus, Rittinen" is only 100 metres from the house. The bus to Grächen and St. Niklaus stops there and the express bus to Visp at weekends. The ski bus also runs from there to Grächen. For guests arriving by car, one parking space is available per flat. This private parking space is located right by the house, off the road on a hill. For motorbikes we also have a carport that can be used. Attention: the driveway is a natural road and is not paved.

The summer world at the Nadelgrat
In front of the house there are seating areas and lawns which invite you to relax, do sports or enjoy an extended barbecue evening. Yoga in the garden, hiking or mountain climbing right around the house, the swimming pool in St. Niklaus and the various tours and trails for mountain bikes should offer something for every sports enthusiast. We offer a storage room for the bicycles and running water for cleaning.
Excursion destinations are nearby such as the Alpe Jungen, Grächen, Embd, Törbel, Visperterminen and the Moosalp are fantastic. All destinations can be discovered by public transport, on foot or some by bike.
If you fancy something a little more sophisticated, Saas-Fee with the Metroalpin Express to the ice pavilion on the Mittelallalin and Zermatt with the Gornergrat cable car and the view of the world-famous Matterhorn are the perfect places for an impressive discovery.

Winter magic on the Nadelgrat
In winter, Grächen offers a ski area with 44 km of pistes from blue to black and is repeatedly awarded as the best family ski area. Being located on the eastern slope, the ski area benefits from guaranteed snow and the golden afternoon sun. So that you don't have to transport your ski equipment to Grächen and back, we have a room right next to the valley station in Grächen where you can leave your equipment.

Attention love!
If you love the mountains, you will surely lose your heart here around our house. The local mountain world is so unique. It is not for nothing that we have guests who have been on holiday with our previous owners since they were children.

What is the Nadelgrat?
According to Wikipedia, the "Nadelgrat" is classically the ridge of the Mischabel chain in the Valais Alps, which descends from the Nadelhorn (4327 metres above sea level) northwestwards to the Galenjoch. From the Nadelhorn follow the Stecknadelhorn (4241 metres), the Hohbärghorn (4219 metres) and the Dirruhorn (4035 metres). Our house has been called Haus Nadelgrat since it was built in 1978. When we were thinking about the names for the flats, Christoph had the nice idea to name the flats after the four peaks of the Nadelgrat. So the flats from the one on the ground floor to the top one in the attic are named after the four peaks of the Nadelgrat, sorted by height. Incidentally, the seating area to the east of the house offers a wonderful view of the Riedgletscher and the Nadelgrat with its four peaks.
