Highs & Lows

The hut we slept during the two days hike at the Schilthorn, called Schilthornhütte

The restaurant at the top of the Schilthorn, was too touristy and therefore the food quality was very poor

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    At the Piz Gloria, top of the Schilthorn, we all decided to have the buffet for lunch, but we were all a bit disappointed. Indeed, the quality was very poor for the price we paid. Also, the waiters were really in hurry for us to choose what we wanted to eat and for us to pay and leave as soon as we were finished. I guess they cannot have a table which is occupied for two hours, they just need to have as many people as possible. This was not a good experience for us. Maybe if we had chosen a meal "à la carte", it would have been better already.

  • Packing tips?

    Good hiking boots and wind jacket

  • Transportation Tips?

    Car is the easiest

  • Booking details?

    The Schilthornhütte needs to be booked in advance for sure! For the camping, it's better as well, specially if it's high season.
