Dufourspitze 4634 m Ski tour

The Dufourspitze is the highest peak in Switzerland and the second highest peak in the Alps; it is just as desirable a destination for many alpinists as Mont Blanc.

On the 28th of January, 1863, the Swiss Federal Council decreed that the culmination point of the Monte Rosa massif be renamed Dufourspitze on the advice of members of the Swiss Alpine Club, in honor of the Swiss cartographer and general Guillaume-Henri Dufour (1787 - 1875). In 1824, Ludwig Freiherr von Welden gave the summit the name “Höchste Spitze" or "Highest Peak”.
