This completely contemporary structure gives the nomadic hikers a place to get clean, eat, sleep and meet other travelers on their way. Of course, there is also the fact that there may be times when out on the mountains one may need to take shelter against the elements. Able to shelter 120 guests, the Monte Rosa Hut’s amazing naturally lit interior is partially due to the glazed ‘strip’ that surrounds the staircase for all to take in the amazing views.
