  • HPT

    The August-Schuster-Haus or "Pürschlingshaus" lies on the ridge of the same name at an altitude of 1,564 meters. The cottage is open all year round except April and November.

    From there, hiking trails lead to the Teufelstättkopf (45 minutes) or Sonnenberg (one hour) and crossings to the Brunnenkopfhütte (two to three hours) in the Ettal Forest.

    The Pürschlingshaus can be reached from Unterammergau in about two hours, from Oberammergau via the Kolbensattel in about two hours and from Linderhof Castle in about two to three hours. The food offered in the cabin is good, down to earth and of a commendable price / performance ratio. However, the hut enjoys a high level of popularity, so especially in the warmer months of the year with a high audience traffic must be expected.

    Recharge your batteries for the cool but nerve-wracking way to the Teufelstättkopf and on

    Great for gaining strength for the way to the summit. But otherwise very comfortable

    Here you can either rest and then go back the same way or you go to the teufelstättkopf and down over its ridge again

    Unfortunately, we had cloud-covered mountains, but the short stop in the hut we have rounded off with a hearty soup and something to drink
