Margherita hut – Highest hut in the Alps

Valais

The Margherita Hut – Capanna Regina Margherita – is located on the Signalkuppe in the Monte Rosa massif and sits spectacularly at an altitude of 4,554 m, making it the highest mountain hut in Europe. The hut is located in the immediate vicinity of the Swiss border and mainly serves as a refuge for mountaineers.

Highest mountain hut in the Alps

The famous Margherita Hut was opened in 1893 and is named after the Italian Queen Margherita of Savoy, to whom Neapolitan pizza chefs dedicated the Margherita pizza. Although the hut is situated at a very high altitude, it has extremely modern facilities. During your stay, you can choose between half board or breakfast buffet, but the Margherita pizza is said to be world-class.

The Margherita hut – Capanna Regina Margherita – is best reached from the Gnifetti hut (3,625 m). First ascend to the Zurbriggenjoch. Cross the pass, pass the Seserjoch on Swiss territory and continue steeply towards the Signalkuppe.

The hut is an ideal starting point for glacier tours to the Zumsteinspitze, Dufourspitze, Nordend and Liskamm peaks.

A highlight of the 5-day spaghetti tour in the Monte Rosa massif is the overnight stay at the Margherita hut. The spaghetti route in the Monte Rosa massif is legendary and one of the most beautiful multi-day alpine tours in the Alps.
