The Schreckhorn hut is located in the Bernese Alps at the Unterer Grindelwaldgletscher, 7 km south-east of Grindelwald.
The hut has a height of 2.530 m and it belongs to the Swiss Alpine Club (SAC) Section Basel.
The hut was built in 1980/1981 as a replacement of the Strahlegg hut which was damaged by an avalanche in 1976.
From the hut you have an impressive view to Schreckhorn, Lauteraarhorn and Finsteraarhorn. The hut stands relatively isolated in lonesome area. The way to the hut is long, the route possibilities are difficult so you will find not too much climbers there. But the climbers you meet there should be able ones.
