Unique backdrop for your wedding ceremony
Get married in a small, idyllic chapel with views of the Matterhorn. Or under the open sky on a lush green meadow in Fieschertal. If you prefer a small, intimate celebration, you will find many fabulous places for a dream wedding in the Aletsch Arena. By special arrangement, open air wedding ceremonies at spectacular locations such as on the glacier are also possible.
Ideas for a unique wedding ceremony
The postcard classic: One of the most romantic places for a mountain wedding is probably the “Maria zum Schnee” Chapel on Bettmeralp. With its picturesque village-centre location on the hill with the Matterhorn in the background, it also makes a perfect setting for photos afterwards.
The insider tips: Other idyllic little churches are the Riederalp Chapel, Fiescher Staffel Chapel in Fieschertal and the “Lagger Putz” Chapel in Lax. Wedding ceremonies are possible in all chapels by arrangement with the relevant priest. He checks if the couple belongs to the church and if all the necessary documents have been submitted. On Riederalp and Bettmeralp, wedding ceremonies are permitted only in the chapels. In Fiesch/Fieschertal, with fantastic views of the wild mountain world, weddings may also be held next to the chapel. Open air weddings can also be arranged at one of the superb energy spots high above the Aletsch Glacier – the view points. At these energy spots, a very special energy has been measured, which is said to strengthen and build you up, invigorate and relax you.
