Very nice hotel in the mountains of the Bernese Oberland. Wonderful Mountains suround the Hotel. The hotel isn't luxurious but that is not what you would expect in the mountains for a hotel which is mainly for hikers. The value is outstanding and we had a room incl. Dinner and Breakfast which both was very good.

Stayed here on 2nd night of our Tour de Jungfrau Region, hiking from Schynige Platte. Hats off to the staff here as this was only location that actually recognized our 15th wedding anniversary---with a free champagne toast and special candle light. Good food, service and engagement by staff--to all the guests we noticed. They seem to do things right here.... More

We travelled up by the First cable car , with views on the way up were nearly as good as the views from the restaurant. The food is excellent with a very good selection and good service. There is both waiter and self service options available. Food is of a very good quality and portions sizes are good. The best... More

This place was awesome. What can I say about the views but outstanding. The mountain streams churning their way down to Grindewald - the mountain range views - even got to see a rainbow over the valley. The hospitality of the staff was amazing. We got upgraded to a small dorm all to ourselves as we were there in off... More

My husband and 12 yr old son hiked for 5 days in the Jungfrau region of Switzerland. This was one of our night stop offs - great service, food and very clean rooms and facilities! I would highly recommend.

For a mountain hut, this place is not cheap, but as a first mountain hut experience for our group, it was absolutely fantastic. The Gasthof is situated above Grindelwald, at the top of the cable car from First. It has a huge terrace affording views straight onto the Eiger, and across towards Kleine Scheidegg. Accommodation was in dormitories of varying... More

Found this berghaus mentioned in a small travel guide for the Alpine Pass Route. Hard to find, as was tucked underneath the First lift station. Well worth the stay of 2 nights! Views were amazing. Our small dorm room looked out at Schreckhorn, the Eiger and down to Grindelwald. Full moon, sunrise and paragliding views. Huge deck on restaurant with... More
