"At first, the mountains are far away, but with every step on the path up to the hut they come closer. At the beginning the path is pleasant, only at the end does it steepen. And then suddenly your are right in the centre of things and you feel the breath of the high mountains. The Swiss flag is a speck of red amid the icy gleam of the Bernina glaciers."

Serviced: Around mid March to mid May, mid June to mid October

Specialties from the kitchen: Local dishes, barbecue

Character: Ideal starting point for trips on ice and rock in the heart of the Bernina massif. Numerous beautiful ski touring routes. Well worth a day trip.

Touring options: Piz Bernina, Piz Morteratsch, Piz Palü, crossing to the Tschierva hut.

Winter dormitory available.

"High mountains, rock, snow, ice, glaciers, and hundreds of climbs of all grades characterize the Bernina, the wonderful high-alpine area just south of St. Moritz. A steep, knife-edged snow ridge, the Biancograt, one of the great, classical climbs, leads like a ladder to Piz Bernina (4049 m). Come to the Tschierva Hut for superb mountaineering in one of the most beautiful and exciting regions of the Alps."

Serviced: mid June to beginning of October. Winter room only at other times.

Touring options: Piz Morteratsch, Piz Bernina, Piz Scerscen, Piz Roseg, Coaz Hut

Specialties from the kitchen: Homemade fruittart, Tschiervarösti, dry meat from the Engadin and many more.

Charakter: Mountaineering of all types and grades, from extreme high-alpine climbs in rock and ice to alpine treks on easier routes.

Highlights: Unique view of the Biancograt from the terrace. As the name of the Tschierva hut suggests, deer and chamoix can often be seen here. The hut has recently been refurbished and is now even more comfortable than before.
