    The Racheldiensthütte is managed - from the snack to the main meal to coffee and cake there is everything. Top quality, highly recommended. At the same time, it is an ideal starting point for a hike to the Rachelsee (about one and a half hours) or on the Großer Rachel. I prefer the way over the pulpit - that's how I walk up the stony and difficult parts. I find it more convenient than down.

    The more than 100-year-old Racheldiensthütte, renovated in 2017, is located in the heart of the Bavarian Forest National Park and is the ideal starting point for hikes on the Goldsteig, to the Rachelsee or to the Großer Rachel.

    The barrier-free hut, idyllically located in the forest, is the ideal place to rest and take a break. With hearty snacks you can enjoy the quiet of the forest.

    The Racheldiensthütte is also on the European long-distance hiking trail E 6.
    No overnight stay possible.

    The hut is open in season from May to October. Cyclists, hikers and day trippers are welcome daily from 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

    The hut can be reached with the "Rachel-Bus" Igelbus.

    Be sure to plan a stop on a tour to the Racheldiensthütte. Great service and good food. There is also a playground for children. In the summer months, the revenge hut can also be reached with the hedgehog bus.

    The Racheldiensthütte lies at 876 m above sea level. NN and is an ideal starting point, as well as a place to rest and stop for a hike to Lake Rachel and the 1453 meter Great Rachel. It was reopened as a daytime restaurant in August 2017 after a general renovation. During the summer season from May to October, hikers, cyclists or day-trippers are welcome every day.

    Good refreshment stops and good food
    Tip: Continue to the picturesque Rachelsee approx. 7.5 km
    The way back can either take the same route, or you can take the route over the rock pulpit and enjoy the wonderful views of the Bavarian Forest from there.
