The Kinhuette is located on a ridge 2584m high above the Kintole, an imposing gorge. The view of the Matterhorn is worth the climb in itself. It is an important starting point for tours to the Taeschhorn. It can also be used as a stage for the hiking tour around Monte Rosa (TMR).

    • The Europaweg between Grächen and Zermatt. The Europaweg trail between Grächen and Zermatt is considered by many to be the most beautiful 2-day hike in the Alps. The views along this mountain panorama including the Matterhorn are famous around the world.

    • Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge: On July 29, 2017, the longest pedestrian suspension bridge “Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge” in the world was opened. The 494 meter long bridge connects Zermatt and Grächen on the Europaweg. At the highest point you are 85 meters above the ground. Being free from giddiness is an advantage!
    • The Taeschhorn (4491 m), the Grabenhorn (3372 m), the Kinhorn (3750 m) and the Dom (4545 m) are particularly suitable for high altitude tours. Some of these peaks are among the best known and highest in the Alps and are very popular among mountaineers.

    • In July 2009, a new route was set up from the Kinhuette to the Taeschhorn using 60m long steel cables, 15 iron pins and 35 stirrups!
