Göscheneralp and Bergseehütte

The ‘Göscheneralp’ is a beautiful valley in the central part of Switzerland with an embankment dam building an artificial lake. The valley hosts several beautiful hikes and climbing routes. The area is the home of several SAC (Swiss Alpine Club) huts, including the Bergseehütte which is the topic of this hike.

Bergseehütte means ‘mountain lake hut’. So don’t miss to visit the lake nearby:

The water was ice cold, so no swimming this time :-).
