The Secret of the Eternal Ice

Description

Glacier trail Berliner Hütte

During the last ice age, several glaciers united in the Zemmgrund to form a gigantic ice stream which gave the valley its present shape. In the meantime, as a result of climate change, the glaciers have retreated far into the high mountains. The highlight of our tour is the path along the glacier trail (no ice contact), where we approach the Berliner Hütte in fresh mountain air. We learn interesting facts about the geology, the formation of the Alps and the world of the "Eternal Ice". Finally we reach the Berliner Hütte, which was built in 1879 and is now a listed building. It is a popular base for mountaineers and glaciologists and a symbol of alpine history. We will be delighted by the architecture and flair of the hut and enjoy the fascinating mountain panorama on the terrace.
