“Owned by the same family as the recommended four-star Pollux (which stands in Zermatt’s main street, Bahnhofstrasse) the Bergrestaurant Fluhalp is found in a very different location: at 2,620 m, high above the town in ski and hiking country. In winter it’s only accessible on skis, in summer on foot, when (between late June and October) the red shuttered chalet makes a memorable and atmospheric overnight stop. There are a handful of double rooms, but the majority of accommodation is in dormitories. Hearty meals and welcome guaranteed.”

“The Fluhalp is situated at 2.620m over sea level, right in the middle of the hiking- and skiing resort and is accessible in summer via Zermatt, Sunnegga Blauherd, or via the hiking track Täschalp – Sunnegga.
Starting point for the Oberrothorn 3415 meters, approx. 2 ½ hrs - Highest hiking and trekking site in Europe.
• Overnight stay possibilities from the end of June to October in summer
• During the winter months only the Restaurant is open (December – End of April)”
