Schönbielhütte - 2694 m. – in the footsteps of pilgrims amd mule drivers

A warm welcome to the Schönbielhut. Surrounded by mighty mountains such as the Matterhorn, Dent Blanche or Obergabelhorn the refuge is a starting point to the classic and breathtaking tours such as the "Haute Route" or the "Tour du Ciel". As a hiking destination it lays at the end of the peaceful valley of Zmutt. You reach us in 2,5 h from Schwarzsee or in 4 h from Zermatt. It is an unforgettable hike along the north face of the Matterhorn. The hut is surrounded by green fields and lends itself perfectly as a place to stay for families.
