The hike starts with a gondola ride all the way up to the Weisshron peak. On 2,653m above sea level a stunning view creates the opening stage of this beautiful hike. From the peak the path descents to the Sattel hut where it is worth taking a break on the sun terrace and enjoy a delicious snack. The second stage of the hike leads further downhill to the Weisshorn middle station. Of course, this hike can also be done in reverse. In this case the 360° view on the peak will be a well-deserved highlight at the end of a long ascent.

Author’s recommendation

Also the Brüggerstuba at the middle station and the peak restaurant on the Weisshorn summit are highly recommended to enjoy a break.
