Escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and find out how comfortable your heart feels – in the untouched nature.



The Almagellerhütte is located on the south side of the Weissmies and is starting point for alpine, climbing and hiking tours and is a destination for one-day visitors. Barren rocks, rushing torrents, the blue sky, the clear view over the Valais mountain peaks, the fresh air and the healthy climate form the perfect setting for your stay in the Almagellerhütte.

  • Information about the shelter

    We no longer have a winter room. The shelter is now open. There is no possibility to cook and sleep (see photos).

    We kindly ask you to take note.

  • We say THANK YOU!

  • Sunrise “Zwischbergenpass” – the holiday highlight for everyone

    Experience the impressive sunrise at an altitude of 3242 m above sea level. After breakfast at 4.00 a.m.
    the “Zwischbergenpass” is easily accessible in about 60 minutes – for everyone. Between the Lago
    Maggiore, the Monte Rosa and the Mischabel chain, an unforgettable morning atmosphere and
    breathtaking pictures await you.

    The traverse into the wild and romantic “Zwischbergental” is also an experience. There is another
    possibility to stay overnight in the restaurant “Zwischbergen”.

    Book your stay now. We look forward to your visit.


  • Update Weissmies and Zwischbergenpass

    The conditions on the Weissmies are excellent. The mountaineers climb the south ridge, the Rotgrat and the traverse of the Weissmies every day.

    Hiking via the Zwischbergenpass is also possible. There is still snow on both sides of the pass. However, the snow conditions are good.

    We are looking forward to welcome you in our hut.

  • Corona regulations

    To ensure your health and safety, we have established a protection concept for the duration of the corona virus pandemic. The primary goal of all precautionary steps taken is to enable you to stay in the hut without any worries and at the same time to contribute to the containment of the virus. If we all stick to this together, we are convinced that we will again spend a wonderful summer in the mountains.

    The following general instructions for visiting our hut must be observed:

    • Visit our hut only in good health!
    • Book your sleeping place – without booking no overnight stay!
    • You must bring the following items to the hut yourself: sleeping bag, towel, disinfectant and protective mask (pillow suit is provided by us)!
    • Take your rubbish back to the valley!
    • Keep your distance to other guests and pay attention to your hand hygiene!
    • On arrival at the hut, further instructions are communicated. Please follow them!

    Within the protection concept, the overnight accommodation capacities have been strongly adjusted. In addition, measures (hand disinfection stations, adjustments to catering, etc.) have been taken to ensure that the hygiene rules can be observed at all times. In order to ensure that the financial consequences for the hut keeper are acceptable, a Corona solidarity contribution of CHF 5.00 is additionally charged for each overnight stay.

    Thank you very much for your understanding. We are looking forward to your visit! Stay healthy!

    Your team at the Almagellerhütte
