Create an itinerary including Monta Rosa Hut
Sitting on a glacier-free part of the massive, Monta Rosa Hut is a favorite refuge for hikers and mountaineers. The ultra-modern building--with aluminum surface reflecting the light and the surrounding landscape--resembles a huge rock crystal. Owned by the Swiss Alpine Club and opened in 2009, the innovative building is self-sufficient in energy. The hut lies on the route to the summit and reaching it is an adventure in its own right, offering outstanding views of glaciers and the Alps' highest peaks.

  • Passed the hut at 8:00 pm and started to move further up to about 3300m.This is 500m higher than the hut. There should not have been any problem. We wanted to camp there and next day climb...

  • It is not an object resembling a mountain shelter. The price of boiling water 9 francs a shower with hot water 5 francs show that the owner is focused on earning money not running the original alpine mountain shelter. 2 stars for a very nice service. I recommend a visit without an overnight stay. Beautiful views
  • Amazing "hut", feels a bit like living in a futuristic, sustainable place on Mars. Very kind team and great food! We did the the new trail to the hut and went back on the old one, both exceptionally beautiful, crossing the melting glacier. Borrow the binoculars and check for animals and seracs!
