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 size, all modern, quite new, clean and bedding provided. Shower facilities also relatively high standard; although the corridors to the rooms themselves do make you feel as if you are entering the depths of the cable car station… (you are)
We enjoyed half board here, so an excellent 3 course dinner, then in the morning, a breakfast buffet you could take your tray out to the terrace and (if you were late as us) sit in the sun opposite the Eiger in your PJs watching people arrive with their skis! It’s well situated too for hiking higher up into the mountains for off piste skiing and Europe’s longest sledge run.
