The final rays of sun light set in the west seen from the balcony of the Tschierva hut on the Bernina Alps .

The Tschierva Hut (German: Tschiervahütte, Romansh: Chamanna da Tschierva) is a mountain hut located in the Swiss canton of Graubünden at the foot of Piz Bernina, Piz Tschierva and Piz Morteratsch at the end of Val Roseg. The hut lies at 2,584 metres above sea level near the Tschierva Glacier and can be accessed from Pontresina via a trail. The hut is the starting point of the Biancograt, the serpentine north ridge of Piz Bernina. The hut is owned by the Swiss Alpine Club.

The Tschierva hut is located in the Bernina mountain range of the Swiss Alps. The addition made by Hans-Jörg Ruch Architektur is the resutl of an architectural competition. The building is part of a series of huts run by the Swiss Alpine Club for trekking the Bernina massif.

Although the addition’s appearance is wooden, its structure is made with steel. The exterior wood paneling is extended to the interior, creating an inviting and warm atmosphere.
