The Finsteraarhorn hut lies at the southwest face of the Finsteraarhorn (4.273 m, highest point of the Bernese Alps), a few meters obove the Fiescher glacier which is the second longest glacier of the Alps.

The hut is managed by the SAC section Oberhasli.

The hut was rebuilt newly in 2003.

The hut is treated by Heinz von Weissenfluh since 2003.

The Finsteraarhorn hut has 110 sleeping places. The hut has a big sun terrace and the meals are very good.

The toilets are in the hut, they are clean because they are dry-WC.
