The Lauteraar hut (2.393 m) is a beautiful smaller hut in the Grimsel area with a wide range of climbing possibilities and a great view to Grimsel storage lake and Lauteraarhorn, Lauteraarrothörner, Scheuchzerhorn, Brandlammhorn etc.
In the evening you always can see chamois a few metres away from the hut and sometimes even marmots.
The hut can be reached be hikers as there is a wonderful trail from Grimsel Hospiz to Lauteraar hut.
The hut operators are very friendly and the meals were delicious.

How to get there
By train: To Meiringen from Zürich via Luzern, from Meiringen by bus to Grimsel Hospiz
By car: Driving the Grimsel pass to Grimsel Hospiz (parking places at the Hospiz or near the road)
When you start hiking at the Grimsel Hospiz you hike across the resevoir dam and the north shore of the Grimsel lake. You hike on marked trails with a wonderful view to the lake on the left side and the walls on the right side. You see wonderful flowers and waterfalls. Then you reach the Unteraar glacier with its boulder fields. This way is not perfectly marked by stonemans so you have to look exactly that you don´t hike unnedless way. You leave the galcier on the right side and ascent through a wonderful grassland. You´ll reach the Lauteraar hut after 4-5 hours.
