Schilthornhütte (Schilthorn hut) is a mountain hut and restaurant slopes of the Schilthorn mountain in Switzerland. The hut has 25 beds laid out in a single dormitory for walkers. It is at an altitude of 2432 near the top of the Obere Hubel and is popular both with mountain walkers in the summer and skiers and snowboarders during the winter months and is managed by Ski Club Mürren.
Schilthornhütte forms a very welcome on a day walk from Mürren to the Piz Gloria restaurant at the top of the Schilthorn. From here hikers continue onto Birg restaurant before the final ascent to the Piz Gloria.
The Schilthornhütte is served by both Muttleren and Kandahar chair lifts with both red (13, 15) and black (14, 15b, 16) ski runs leading from it and a blue run (12) from Birg leading to it. The hut is on the 10 mile route of the yearly Inferno Ski run which starts near the top of the Schilthorn, passes close to Allmendhubel and finishes at Lauterbrunnen.
