Surrounded by majestic peaks over 3,000 metres high, the Jamtalhütte is an important refuge for walkers and hikers in the Silvrette Mountains. It was created back in 1882 and became increasingly popular from the 1920s onwards with the advent of winter tourism in the region. Today it remains popular with many different kinds of visitors, from families with children to ambitious mountaineers keen to explore the nearby glaciers (mountain guide recommended). The Jamtalhütte is one of the largest refuges of its kind in the Alps with a capacity of 180 beds. The hut, which is today run by the fourth generation of the Lorenz family, also has conference and seminar facilities available to hire.
