The UFS Schneefernerhaus is neither a hotel nor a restaurant. There are 45 beds for scientists and two kitchens which may be used by scientists who stay overnight. Everyone who uses this kitchen is asked to keep it clean and tidy. Food has to be brought to the UFS by the guests themselves. There is no cafeteria or else at the station. During operation times of the cable car (usually 8:00 – 15:00) it is possible to visit the restaurant “SonnAlpin” in the ski resort Zugspitzplatt.
Overnight accomodation is, in principle, only available for scientists working on projects at the UFS.
