Balmhornhütte SAC 1956 m

The cosy, authentic summer cabin takes you back in time. Situated almost vertically above Gasteretal near Kandersteg on a shoulder at the foot of Balmhorn, surrounded by green mountain pastures, the gem of a cabin stands out due to the location on a promontory. Mountain hikers love to ascend Gasterespitz on Wildelsigegrat with its overwhelming panorama across the Kanderfirn and further on to Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.
