Hiking Trail
At the Mönchsjochhütte, there’s no shortage of things to see and do: Switzerland’s highest serviced mountain cabin can be reached along a marked path from the Jungfraujoch within just 50 minutes.

The Mönchsjochhütte lies nestled amidst the UNESCO Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch World Heritage Site. Four-thousand-footers like the Jungfrau, Mönch and Fiescherhörner seem so close, you could reach out and touch them, and the view to the Pennine Alps and central and eastern Switzerland is practically endless! At the foot of the Mönch, Europe’s longest ice stream, the Aletsch glacier, begins flowing south.
