From Schwarzsee to the Gandegg Hut
To the Top Of the Breithorn
The Gandegghütte was originally built to provide a base for climbing the Breithorn.
While there are now several other options for reaching the top of the Breithorn, the Gandegg Hut is still a very good starting point. Accompanied by a mountain guide, the rewarding Breithorn ascent will be a success.
