Allalinhorn, Swiss Alps

(3.7/5 based on 15+ reviews on the web)
The Allalinhorn is a mountain in the Pennine Alps in Switzerland. It lies between Zermatt and Saas-Fee in the canton of Valais, and is part of the Mischabel range, which culminates at the Dom .It was first climbed by London barrister Edward Levi Ames, the clergyman Johann Joseph Imseng, another member of the Imseng family and Johann's manservant Franz-Josef Andenmatten on 28 August 1856.The building of the Metro Alpin funicular to the Mittelallalin just below the north-east face has turned the mountain into one of the easiest and popular 4000-metre peaks of the Alps, when climbed by the standard route . On the normal route, climbers can ride up to the Mittelallalin; from there, there are only about 500 vertical metres to tackle. However, even the 'easiest' route still has objective dangers from crevasses and should not be attempted by inexperienced mountaineers without a mountain guide or adequate crevasse rescue training.

  • It took us 2 hours to get there. Wonderfull view buth we came for a small lunch but the only thing they have is pie?? From 15u30 you can eat... that's a missed chance.  more »
  • Original with a wonderfull view. OK to drink something but the price of a saussage is just revolting... I assume the view is part of it. Nevertheless, a Nice stop.  more »
  • A visit to the Allalinhorn is unforgettable! What a view of mountains, glaciers, and snowfields. If many visitors there are around noon, you have to wait long. Not enough staff for the peak hours masses!
