The Highest Occupied Hut in Switzerland
Dear Guests – Welcome
The Mönchsjoch Hut is situated in the middle of the Jungfrau-Aletsch UNESCO World Heritage. The 4000 meter high mountains such as the Jungfrau, Mönch and the Fiescherhörner seem to be close enough to touch and the great views of central and eastern Switzerland as well as of the Valais Alps are almost infinite! Besides that, at the foot of the Mönch, the longest ice stream of Europe, the Aletsch Glacier, begins flowing southwards.
We look forward to welcoming you soon as an overnight or day guest!
We endeavour to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
The warden of the hut Christian Almer and the entire hut team
The hut is open with warden service.
We are there for you from mid-March till mid-October 2016.
The hut is looked after and the restaurant is open. The path from the Jungfraujoch across the glacier is prepared.
From 14 May to 4 September 2016, on arrival we ask our overnight guests to use the penultimate train leaving 5p.m. from Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch . With the later train one is not there in time for dinner; in case of delay please call the hut.
We would be pleased to sign you up on our reservation list for the season 2016. Please use our online reservation or call us: +41 33 971 34 72
