The famous mountain guide Ulrich Inderbinen (1900–2004) lived here from early summer until after the New Year. The house is also an example of the nomadism of the mountain population at that time.
Around here, little Ulrich, born in 1900, had to help out in mountain farming, as was customary back then: tending goats, carrying small wooden burdens to the house and so on. Ulrich later became a mountain guide and could still be found on peaks at the age of 90. He gained international fame and became an icon of Zermatt, to which films and books are dedicated. He died at the age of 104 in 2004.
