The UFS Schneefernerhaus does not provide hotel or restaurant services. There are 45 beds and two kitchens which may be used by scientists who stay overnight. Individuals who use the kitchens are asked to keep it clean. Food needs to be brought to the UFS by the guests themselves. There is no cafeteria or opportunity to purchase food or drinks at the station. During the cable car operating times (usually 8:00 – 15:00), it is possible to visit the restaurant “SonnAlpin” in the Zugspitz ski resort
Overnight accommodation is, in principle, only available for scientists working on projects at the UFS.
