Chapel of Maria zum Schnee

There is a long history associated with the plot of land on which the emblem of Bettmeralp in the Aletsch Arena, the Chapel of Maria zum Schnee (Mary of the Snows), was built in 1697. For even before the present building existed, a chapel dedicated to St. James stood on the same site. Hardly surprising, given the breathtaking views of the Valais mountain panorama from there. By the way, if you want to get married in the Aletsch Arena, Bettmeralp is ideal: the Maria zum Schnee Chapel is also available for weddings.
