Europe's highest gallery opened its doors on 29 January 2010: the "Galerie Maste 4" in Saas-Fee. Encircled by lordly 4000m peaks an unique location is awaiting you.

The "Galerie Maste 4" represents the fulfilment of a dream for the Dutch artist Marjolein Bos, who is living and working in Saas-Fee. Thanks to her drive and inventiveness she has turned the old building below the Morenia mid-way station into an attractive meeting place. Various paintings and sculptures are in full view on the first floor of the former restaurant, just waiting for the opinions of potential visitors. 

The aim is to rotate the exhibition 5-6 times each year with works, sculptures and paintings by international artists. Furthermore you will have the opportunity to look directly over the shoulders of guest artists for a specific period.

In the Winter she also aims in particular to attract non-skiers with this offering. A trip to the gallery can however also be utilised as a bad weather alternative.
