Welcome to the Binntal hut !

Located in the beautiful valley of Binn, on the left bank of the Rhone river in the Canton of Valais, the Binntal hut is in the heart of a parc naturel régional that is known for its crystals. The area is very popular among day hikers and mountaineers who would like to climb the Ofenhorn.

The hut is located on a historical passage between Switzerland and Italy and is to this day an important stop for multi-day hikes to Italy or the Tessin.

The hut is located, as its name indicates, in the valley of Binn, at 30 minutes from the Alpbrun pass on the border with Italy. The hut is accessible from the village of Binn and Fäld in Switzerland, or from the Alpe Devero or Valdo Formazza on the italian side. Public transports provides easy access to the starting points of the hikes.

From mid-june to beginning of October different members of the Delémont section of the Swiss Alpine Club will welcome you and share their love for this wonderful place with you. The rest of the year the hut is unmanned, but is always open and the facilities are available for you.
