The Cube Aletsch - Prefab Hut High Up In The Swiss Mountains Overlooking The Largest Alpine GlacierThe Cube  
Aletsch

The Cube Aletsch offers a one-off experience in so many ways. Located in a remote place 2,869 m (9,413 ft) above sea level in Switzerland, this double occupancy hideaway sits next to the largest glacier in the Alps.

The Aletsch Glacier is currently 20 kilometers (12.4 miles) long, but it's losing ice mass at a rapid rate. Since 1870 it has already retread by 3 kilometers (1.9 miles), and the melting pace has increased alarmingly. As a result, the gravest predictions foresee this vast glacier disappearing almost entirely by 2100.

Therefore you should consider booking Cube Aletsch's unique mini-mountain hut as soon as possible, especially because it's so popular that it has already sold out for this year (2022).

The cozy prefabricated mountain hut for two offers unlikely luxury at such altitude. It has a bathroom with a shower, a sitting area with a table and chairs, and a pull-out sofa bed. The kitchen has all the most essential amenities you need: a fridge, a kettle, and a coffee maker. So you can enjoy the morning rays of sun on the terrace with a hot cup of coffee.

PRICE FROM $480

A cable car will take you on a scenic ride to the top of Eggishorn mountain.

Some say Eggishorn offers one of the most outstanding panoramas in the entirety of the Alps. It wouldn't be surprising as the Jungfrau-Aletsch mountain landscape is a UNESCO World Heritage area.

The terminus building on the peak has an adjoining restaurant with a cozy wood and stone patio. However, Horli-Hitta's presence will not interfere with the privacy of your stay due to its limited opening hours.
