The Monte Rosa hut sits on Switzerland’s second highest Alpine peak, with impressive views of the neighbouring Matterhorn.

The Monte Rosa hut covers 2,883 m at the foot of the Monte Rosa massif has been a popular destination for hikers and mountaineers since 2009.

This self-sufficient, self-sustaining, modern day lodge was conceived by the bright architectural minds of two Swiss universities.

The house offers smart features that allow this alpine hut to function as a hotel and restaurant for extreme mountaineers. We want to emphasise ‘extreme’ as the house is not accessible by car or cable car… So don’t expect to be running out for milk! But this is not the least of the difficulties as you could imagine building this thing would have been challenging.
