The Konkordiahütte is a mountain hut belonging to the Grindelwald section of the Swiss Alpine Club (SAC). It is located at 2,850 metres above sea level and about 200 metres above Konkordiaplatz. You can reach it by taking the long but straightforward route from Fiescheralp over the Aletsch Glacier, which takes about six hours.
There is an easier and shorter – though rather more expensive – route to the hut. It starts from Jungfraujoch, exiting the Sphinxstollen (Sphinx Tunnel), and then descends south-eastwards via the Jungfraufirn Glacier to Konkordiaplatz and across the wide area on its eastern edge to the hut’s ski depot at the foot of the metal ladders.
Walking across the ice flows of the Aletsch Glacier is always an unforgettable experience, but it requires good physical fitness and sure-footedness, as well as serious preparation, knowledge and Alpine equipment. An expert guide is an absolute must for such an excursion. Glacier tours of varying lengths and characteristics are regularly available in both the Jungfrau region and the Aletsch area. Early booking is recommended.
Route planning is the responsibility of the mountain guide and the route depends on the tour that has been arranged.
