On the tracks of pilgrims and sumpters

Dear guests, we welcome you at the Schönbielhut.

The hut is the starting point for beautiful alpine tours since 1875. Haute Route, Haute Route Impériale and Tour du Ciel are the names of some of the possible interesting multi-day mountain tours. In the case of the Tour du Ciel you cross the ridge between Mattertal and Val d’Hérens passing over Mont Durand, Cabane de Traquit, Bishorn, Topalihut all the way to St. Niklaus.

In the summer other climbs and tours can be undertaken starting in our hut. One example is the Zmutt ridge of the Matterhorn which can be climbed from our hut. Similar ambitious climbs are the Dent d’Hérens, Dent Blanche or the Obergabelhorn. Other easier, but not less beautiful tours include the Pointe de Zinal, Äbihorn or Tête Blanche, which can be reached from our hut.
