Activity overview

This historic mountain hotel has been the overnight location of choice for the likes of Picasso and Lenin in days gone by.

A comfortable overnight location on the route to Gemmipass, overlooking a beautiful lake. One of tour more easily accesible huts, it is just a 2 hour  walk from the top of the Sunnbuel cable car station.

Schedule 

This is only a recommendation. Times may vary depending on weather and the group’s ability.

Take the 14:00 gondola and begin walking to Schwarenbach hotel. The hike from the top of the gondola takes approximately 2 hours. This will leave your group plenty of time to hike and arrive at the hut in time for dinner.
