They range from rustic dorm-style accommodations (hütte, singular hut) high in the Alps to simple but pleasing mountain inns. Many of these are operated by the Swiss Alpine Club, similar to the U. S. -based Appalachian Mountain Club; others are privately owned. All of them offer clean, if simple, accommodations along with spine-tingling views and solid, home-cooked meals.
The construction of facilities for tourists started in the mid nineteenth century with the building of hotels and mountain huts (creation of the Swiss Alpine Club in 1863) and the opening of mountain train lines (Mount Rigi in 1873, Mount Pilatus in 1889, Gornergrat in 1898). The Jungfraubahn opened in 1912; it leads to the highest railway station in Europe, the Jungfraujoch.
