Nowadays, old hut books make interesting reading. The Doldenhorn Hut’s guestbook starts with verve: “We herewith want to inform future visitors that during the inauguration of this shelter and protective hut on the Doldenhorn today, July 2, 1899, a large number of guests of honor participated in the event with great pleasure.” In those days, the touring area proves to be very attractive and the 12-bunk wooden hut too small. In 1926 and 1943 it is increased to 45 sleeping places. In 1962 the first aerial cableway is built, which, however, is damaged by an avalanche in 1965. In the following year a new one is built. Subsequently, additional improvements are made: A telephone connection in 1967, solar equipment in 1985, a small hut-owned power plant in 1988 and an overhead electricity line from the valley in 2004. The hut today is so comfortable that ever more families come to visit. The dorm offers 40 beds with duvets. In the cozy restaurant, guests of all age groups are treated to culinary specialties. The hut is catered from June through September.
