Hiking Collection by
komoot

Longing for the mountains? We can understand you just too well. Although autumn is labeled as the most beautiful time for hiking, many mountain lodges have already shut their doors. When knocking on a mountain lodge's door, you might see a sign with "winter break" written on it. No worries! There are some indefatigable hosts, who still satisfy your craving for a well deserved Kaspressknödel or hot chocolate in the cold season. To find them, simply check out our eight mountain huts in Southern Germany, who open their doors just for you; also in the cold season. So lace your shoes and enjoy this beautiful autumn - in the mountains.

    Priener Hütte

    Hiking Highlight

    The Priener Hütte, open all year round, is one of the most well-known huts in Chiegmau. Whether hiking in summer or skiing or snowshoeing in winter, you can enjoy home-style regional cuisine here. Especially recommended is the homemade bread from the wood oven. This strengthens also for the Geigelstein, which is located above at 1808m. If you decide to stay overnight, I can only recommend getting up early to enjoy the overwhelming sunrise with the panorama of the Zahmen and Wilden Kaiser. Absolute hut tip in Chiemgau!

    Opening Hours: Open all year, except for the period from 1st Advent to the 2nd Christmas Day (28.11.2016 - 26.12.2016)

    Carl von Stahl-Haus

    Hiking Highlight

    At 1733m above sea level is the Carl von Stahl House. Here I stayed in June with 2 friends. Despite strong operation, both the food was very good and the staff friendly. In the tour choice the host was a great help, and enriched us with the knowledge of a locals. Great advantage is the opening times, as here also in winter, admission is granted. The only drawback are the shower prices, for ten minutes with € 2.50 to book. I would definitely come back anyway.

    Opening hours: open all year!

    Albert-Link-Hütte

    Hiking Highlight

    This Alpine Club hut, which is located in the Bavarian Prealps, belongs to the DAV. When you arrive here, the hut has a large terrace with stunning views of the mountains around the Spitzingsee to offer. What I noticed very positively, was the own production of wood oven bread, smoked cheese or bacon, which you can also buy now. My tip: enjoy your home and let the hiking day pass by.

    Opening hours:
    year-round; Closed on Mondays (except public holiday)
    20.11.-24.12.2016 company holidays

    Schönfeldhütte

    Hiking Highlight

    The Schönfeldhütte is a managed hut of the Munich Alpine Club. Because of its location and easy accessibility, it is ideal for family stays. I was here with a friend from South America, who could not get enough of the homemade bread. The innkeeper recommended the Kaiserschmarren to me, which I can absolutely pass on to this place! Friendly service and great hut.

    If you are on a holiday in Hinterstein, a tour to the Schwarzenberghütte is just the thing to do. Especially because of the very easy accessibility from the Gibelhaus - about 1.5 hours - or from the bus stop bridge Ostrach - about 1.5 hours. Although each hut claims to be preparing the best Kaiserschmarren far and wide, I can only confirm this here. But also she could score points with great hospitality and hospitality.

    Opening Hours: From December 25th to October 31st.

    Here you can not speak of hut anymore. The Rotwandhaus was completely renovated a few years ago, which has certainly improved the stay. On the huge terrace sweeps the panoramic view of the Zugspitze to the Großglockner. At the slightly higher prices one notices that the conversion probably cost a lot. Nevertheless, the food and service is of high quality, which justifies the price again. Peak times should be avoided if possible, because often flocks of hungry tourists want to be fed.

    Opening hours: all year round

    Lenggrieser Hütte in Bayern - 1338m

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    In July 2016, the Lenggrieser Hütte got a new tenant. Very much to the goodwill of the guests. On a cold autumn day we arrived a little later than expected. The landlady said that the kitchen is already closed. The more we radiate, as yet 10 minutes later a very delicious lentil soup was served. In good weather, the sun terrace offers to enjoy the magnificent view of the Karwendel 1338m. Another plus is the year-round opening hours. Very pleasant stay!

    Opening hours: Open all year - closed on Tuesdays.

    Located directly on the Austrian-German border, is the Spitzsteinhaus. This makes it very easy to reach both from the German side of Sachrang or Innerwald and from the Austrian side from Erl. A big advantage of this hut are also its opening hours. All year round you are taken care of by friendly landlords. This is reflected in the seasonal menu, which includes regional products and tasty Tyrolean specialties and is regularly changed. As a member of the Alpine Club Action "The taste of the mountains", the quality is consistently high. Unfortunately, I was only here twice; but always very satisfied!

    Opening hours:
    The Spitzsteinhaus is open every day, not a rest day!
    Company holidays from 14.11.2016
    until 14.12.2016.
