In the middle of a high alpine mountain scenery,
at the foot of the northeast ridge of the Lenzspitze.



The hut will be closed till 19th of June 2021.

We are looking forward to the Season 2021.



The hut will open on Saturday, 20th of June 2020.

We have a protective concept indicating how we intend to comply with the current Federal Council directives. All regulations issued by the authorities must continue to be complied with (in particular hygiene and distance regulations, protective measures for guests and employees, etc.)


For hut guests, this means:

  • Book your berth - no reservation, no overnight stay! 

  • Only stay in the hut if you are in good health

  • Bring your own protective masks, disinfectant, sleeping bag liner, pillow case 50cm x 40cm , towel

  • Take your rubbish back to the plain

  • Keeping distance

  • wash your hands thoroughly

  • Please follow the instructions of the crew


Under the current situation, it is not self-evident that the hut will open this summer. The massive reduction of sleeping places, high hygiene effort and financial uncertainty are particular challenges for us. The Akademischer Alpenclub Zürich and the guardian have decided to make a solidarity surcharge of Sfr 10.- to minimize the risk. We hope for your understanding and will do our best to make your stay as pleasant as possible.


Although this summer takes a lot of flexibility and discipline from our guests and us, we are looking optimistically and anticipation into the summer season! And we are looking forward to welcoming you as guests at the Mischabelhütte!

The hut ascent from Saas Fee is marked throughout, with steel cables and a ladder in the upper ridge area and takes about 4 hours.


If you use the cable car to Hannig, the walking time is reduced by approx. 1 hour.



The Nadelhorn offers a beautiful and varied high tour. It is the highest peak of the Nadelgrat. It probably got its name from an oval hole, the so-called "needle hole", which is located about 10 meters northwest of the highest point. The ascent over the normal route belongs to the easier peaks of the Mischabel group if the conditions are good.

In the midst of a high alpine mountain scenery, at the foot of the northeast ridge of the Lenzspitze, surrounded by 4000m peaks, it lies, like an eagle's nest, the Mischabelhütte at 3340m above sea level. It is a worthwhile excursion destination and starting point for some 4000m peaks.



Today the hut visitor has two huts at his disposal, which are about 10 meters away from each other. The upper hut (new hut) with kitchen, sleeping places, dining room and sanitary facilities can be called the main house. The lower hut serves as an additional sleeping camp and in times of non-maintenance as a winter room. The owner and builder of the Mischabelhütte is the Akademische Alpenclub Zürich (AACZ), which offers 130 beds, dinner, breakfast, drinks, marching tea and a small daily menu with mainly regional specialities.
