Posted in Lifestyle » Travel   22 Feb 2014   / 7052 views

At 13,133 feet (4,000 meters) above the ground, located on the north-eastern ridge of the Matterhorn, the Solvay Hut is owned by the Swiss Alpine Club and is used for providing food and shelter to mountaineers, climbers and hikers. Named after Ernest Solvay, it was first built in 1915 and then rebuilt in 1976 and equipped with a telephone.

UPD: Thanks to all for noticing the error, it was a typo, our bad. We already corrected it and sorry for the inconvenience.

Why is the word "Swedish" even mentioned here? The mountain lies between Switzerland and Italy, and Ernest Solvay was a Belgian.
Never underestimate the power of large crowds, of stupid people.

I think it's little kids that run this site. Part of the amusement is trying to understand what the hell they are posting about.
