info and accommodations Accommodations

Grächen - Europahütte

This is the first part of the main stage of the Monte Rosa Tour. The section Grächen – Zermatt is one of the hardest altitude hike of all Europe. All the efforts are rewarded by the fantastic view on the imposing Weisshorn and his impressive neighbours.

We rapidly gain height, on this steep old goat trail. On the edge, the most remarkable lookout point of the section, is the statue of Saint Bernard, the patron saint of the mountaineers and the inhabitants of the Alps. The next part of the trail brings us through fallen rocks, pastures, paths and safe passages in the rocks. On the right-handed side of the trail, between Grächen and Zermatt, the hiker is permanently dominated by the impressive massifs, like the north-east cliff of the Weisshorn.
One can spend an excellent night in the newly built Europahütte hut.
