Refuge de l’Espace

Description

Located on the Glacier 3000, the atypical Refuge de l'Espace enjoys a unique location suspended above Derborence. Enjoy regional dishes while admiring the breathtaking view from the terrace!

The Refuge de l'Espace has without doubt one of the most spectacular views in the Vaud Alps! It is set against the slopes of the Diablerets Massif, at the foot of the Quille du Diable at 2,860 metres. In the middle of this glacial landscape, the warm welcome of the managers warms the heart. With its magnificent terrace, the restaurant offers a cuisine prepared with regional products. Among the must-try dishes are the hot Rougemont Fleurette tomme with truffle oil and fried potatoes, the "Schüblig" sausage with Bénichon mustard and fried potatoes as well as homemade desserts such as tarte tatin and chocolate cake. See playful jackdaws while the lucky ones admire the majestic bearded vultures that have their nest nearby. Over a Yeti tea or a Refuge coffee, the public also learns about the history and legend of the 1714 landslide and the famous Devil's Keel. Young and old feel as if they are in another world at the Refuge de l'Espace.

Access on foot: 45 minutes walk from the cable car arrival point on a marked and secure path. Access by ski, snow bus (booking required in winter), plane or helicopter. Large terrace with spectacular views of the Alps. When Glacier 3000 is closed (cable car closure), the Refuge de l'Espace is also closed.
