The Capanna Gambarögn and the STARSBOX are located on Monte Gambarogno. From the summit you have a beautiful 360° view over the Alps and the plains of Locarno.

The hut is located on the summit of Monte Gambarogno and can be reached on foot in just 45 minutes from Alpe di Neggia. The view over the lake and the Alps is unique and when the north wind is strong, the view extends to the Padana plain. The Capanna Gambarögn was built by the Swiss military in 1934. Today the Capanna is no longer usable, but its location and its many possibilities have led to the founding of the "Amis dala Capanna Gambarögn" association. The restoration of the Capanna is the main purpose of this association. After the restoration, the aim would be to keep the hut open all year round, offering additional accommodation and catering in the summer months.

*Until the hut is ready, there is the possibility to stay overnight in the unique STARSBOX and Tipi.*

Sleep in StarsBox and watch the stars all night. In this natural environment with nature, the rustling of the trees, the stars, this is exactly where we have built our 2 StarsBox "Lüf and Falchett". A "box" full of dreams where you can't get enough of the stars and magnificent sunrises. The box is ideal for 2 people and there is a toilet nearby.
