Like many others, the Gaulihütte also has a unique history. The original hut, which today serves as a winter room among other things, was built in 1895 by an Englishman and later donated to the SAC. The present accommodation has stood since 1970 and is connected to the smaller one on a terrace at the eastern foot of the Hangendgletscherhorn.
