Ascent to the hut
The Binntal hut has been entirely renovated in 2018. Protection of the environment was one of the priorities of the renovation because of the location in the natural park. The number of beds has not been increased, but the dormitories have been split to improve the comfort.
There are 50 beds spread over several dormitories of different sizes : two dormitories with 12 beds each, 4 dormitories with six beds and one double room.
From the dining hall you can admire the sunset over the Nesthorn and the seating areas around the hut allow you to enjoy a small meal in the sun and to enjoy summer evenings.
In CHF, per person, tourist taxes and VAT included.
