Im Generatorhäuschen wurde früher der Strom für das Hotel Furkablick erzeugt. Der Wanderweg der daran vorbeiführt, bringt Dich hinab zur Haltestelle Furka (2160 m ü.M.) der Furka-Dampfbahn. Auf den Infokarten im Cache erfährst Du etwas über die grossen krautigen Pflanzen die unterhalb der Terrasse des Hotels Furkablick wachsen (Alpen-Ampfer, Rumex alpinus), die Mehlschwalben (Delichon urbicum), die an der Hauswand unter dem Dach brüten und über die Geschichte des Hotels Furkablick.

In the past all the electricity for the Hotel Furkablick was produced in the small generator hut. The hiking path that passes by, leads down to the train station Furka (2160 m a.s.l.) of the Furka Steam Railway. On the info cards in the cache you can learn about the large leafy plants that grow close to the terrace of the Hotel Furkablick (Alpine dock, Rumex alpinus), the Common house martins (Delichon urbicum) that are breeding on the house wall underneath the roof, and about the history of the Hotel Furkablick.
