Hello,

My brother and I are looking to do a hut to hut hike in the Bernese Oberland area for 3 days this May. There is so much information online and I am having trouble navigating all the sites. Since I'm going to be there for such a short time I was wondering what the best hikes/huts in that area. Thank so much and looking forward to your suggestions!

Best,

Steph

Hi ssussman18

Can you read or translate German?

www.sac-cas.ch/?id=186

That SAC site could help.

Some links -

Snow blocks high trails well into June, so you may run into some problems in May.

Hi Steph-

On that SAC link, some huts are listred under reservations, those huts at least show open days/weeks/months.

Hi,

You may struggle finding something open at this time of year. A lot of the huts in the Oberland are quite high and don't open until June. As Slowpoke suggested, the Swiss Alpine Club site will have all the info you need. Something else to consider is how variable the weather is this time of year. It can snow heavily at the drop of hat, so you may need to be a bit flexible in your plans. If you can hang off unill 19th June, the Glecksteinhuette above Grindelwald will be open and it's well worth an overnight stay.

Have a safe trip.

Hello,

AlanPrice is right, there still will be a lot of snow on your route. However Lobhornhütte reopens on the 5th of May and you will probably find a little hotel in Mürren. It is a nice walk with beautiful views on Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.

And you can find a lot more information on mountain huts on

www.mountaincabins.eu

Enjoy your stay in Switzerland.
