[edit] General information

The Finsteraarhorn Hut (Finsteraarhornhütte) is a mountain hut located south of the Finsteraarhorn(4.273 m, highest point of the Bernese Alps). It is situaded at 3,046 m above sea level, north of the Fiescher Glacier, in a remote area of the Bernese Alps in the Swiss canton of Valais. The hut is owned by the Swiss Alpine Club.

The hut is accessible only to mountaineers, the shortest access is from the Jungfraujoch (6 hours), every route crosses large glaciers. The Finsteraarhorn Hut is the base of the normal route to the summit of Finsteraarhorn, it is also used to climb other high summits in the area (see overview). The hut is managed by the SAC section Oberhasli. The hut is hosted by Vreni & Hans Winterberger-Lohner. The Finsteraarhorn hut has 110 sleeping places. The hut has a big sun terrace and the meals are very good.

[edit] History

The hut was rebuilt newly in 2003.
