The Rotstockütte


The Rotstockhütte occupies a strategic vantage point on the trail between Murren and the Sefinenfurgge. The Monch and Jungfrau peaks tower in the background, and wildflowers grow in profusion on warm summer days.

Fashioned from stone, and smelling of woodsmoke and sun-dried timbers, the Rotstockhütte welcomes travelers with hot local dishes, cool refreshments, and lots of mountain history. Topo maps, labeled in German and French, adorn the walls and tables. Weathered photos offer a testament to the region’s rugged culture. The sounds of laughter and conviviality roll onto the surrounding mountainside. This is also a working farm, so travelers get a first hand look at a centuries-old tradition of high mountain grazing.

Tours that explore this area include:
Jungfrau Trail
Eiger Trail
Self Guided Berner Oberland Trek and Traverse
