[edit] General information

The hut is located in the Bernese Alps at a fantastic location above Concordia where Ewigschneefeld, Jungfraufirn and Grosser Aletschfirn converging into the Aletsch Glacier.

[edit] History

The hut was first build in 1877 at the Faulberg, 50 m above the glacier at Concordia. In 1898 a private hut was build by the hotelier Emil Cathrein and named Pavilion Cathrein.

In 1908 the SAC section Grindelwald built a section hut. This third hut was arranged by generous support of Gustav Hasler (who climbed first the so-called Hasler-route on Aletschhorn), therefor the hut was called Hasler hut. In 1946 the family Cathrein sold their hut to the SAC section Grindelwald and the Hasler hut was taken for supplies and equipment.

The main hut was reconstructed 4 times: in 1951, 1967, 1976 and 1996. Today the Hasler hut is the winter hut and additional accomodation at the high season. Since the glacier decreased since 1877, today you have to climb a steel staircase(1975) 433 stairs up to the hut.

The hut provides a beautifull view on many mountains, amongst which the Jungfrau, Fiescherhorn, Gross Grünhorn and Aletschhorn.

Over 25 routes start from the hut and additionally there are rock climbing routes directly behind the hut with a total of 50 rope lengths (difficulty II - VI).
