Activity overview

Situated below the snow slopes of Blümlisalphorn above the Hohtürli (2,840m).

This hike requires a good level of fitness. The approach from Kandersteg is fairly sustained, but frequently used because the gradually ascending route offers a great variety of alpine scenery starting from the lake, through high pasture land and ending on the rough rock / glacier slopes around the hut. The hut is one of the biggest in the region with 124 beds and restaurant services.


The hike up to Blüemlisalp Hut from Oeschinensee takes approximately 5 hours. We suggest taking the gondola up to oeschinensee at 10:00, this will allow you to take your time and arrive to the hut in good time for dinner (served at 18:30).  

This is only a recommendation. Times may vary depending on weather conditions and groups ability
