Arrival, huts ascent
The most environmentally friendly way to get to the hut is to take a train to Ausserberg and start your hiking journey from there. The ascent from there to the hut is about 4.5 hours. Alternatively, there is a taxi service from Ausserberg to «Fuxtritt» that shortens the rise considerably, Taxi Zerzuben Visp +41 (0)27 948 04 80. Or for small groups Taxi Yvonne Ausserberg +41 (0)78 684 35 91.
If you arrive by private car, you need to get a parking permit at the top of the village Ausserberg. You can get the permit at all parking machines, restaurants and shops of the village. You’ll then drive up the forest road to the place called «Fuxtritt» on 1800 m. This is where the road ends and the hiking journey starts. Please avoid parking your car on the turnaround as other cars might need that space to depart. Just park it along the roadside. From there the hike takes approximately 1.5 hours till you reach the hut.
To use the roads outside the village Ausserberg you have to buy a driving permit. This costs 5.– CHF per day and each additional day + 3.– CHF. It is also possible to buy an annual permit for 40.– CHF.
This driving permit is available
- In the village shop
- At the parking machine in the upper village (number 500)
