Monte Rosa Hut

In Switzerland even the mountain huts are innovative feats.

The Monte Rosa Hut is also known as the “rock crystal” for its special shape. It was developed for the 150th anniversary of the ETH Zurich as a student project. Aluminium cladding surrounds the log cabin, which is intended to be as self-sustaining as possible, with a solar water heater, heat recovery technology and a water circuit. It can accommodate up to 120 guests.
