The Alpenhaus was built in 1934 by the DAV Essen section. The opening times are Monday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and Thursday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. From 6 p.m. by appointment. There is also the possibility of staying overnight in the hut for up to 34 people. Further information can be found at alpenhaus.de.
If you want to go on a hike there, it makes sense to observe the opening times.

If you want to leave the Alpenhaus early, unfortunately it's unfortunate. There is no breakfast before 9am. The innkeeper likes to sleep a bit longer and 9 o'clock is way too early. :-). The menu is not extensive, but sufficient for 1/2 nights. Food is good and plentiful.

That probably showed hut north of the Alps. Here you can enjoy the peace and quiet - far away from stress and everyday life. If you want to switch off and explore the area on various hiking trails, this is the right place for you.The foundation stone was laid on July 1, 1934 and the topping-out ceremony was held on September 30, and the inauguration ceremony took place at the turn of 1934/35.

The donkey trail begins shortly before the Alpenhaus. The name comes from the period from 1948 to 1956 there, the hut was managed by Christel and Siegfried Federle, whose transport donkey is still well remembered by many older residents. The shortest way from Oberhundem to the Alpenhaus is still popularly known as the donkey path.
