ATTENTION: Summer 2020 closed!

The mountain hotel / restaurant Kummenalp is situated at 2000 m above sea level directly on the Lötschental high trail. The Kummenalp is an ideal starting point for the Ferden, Resti and Lötschen Passes.

From the top station of the Wiler-Lauchernalp cable car you can reach us in less than an hour. From here you can enjoy the magnificent view of the Lötschental mountain world with the Bietschhorn.

In our cosy restaurant or on the sun terrace we will spoil you with traditional Valaisan cuisine and homemade desserts and cakes. You can spend the night in comfortable, wood-panelled double rooms, family rooms or in the mattress dormitory.

We look forward to your visit.


Summer only: 1 July to 30 September (October on request)
