The August-Schuster-Haus or “Pürschlinghaus” is located on the mountain ridge of the same name at an altitude of 1,564 meters. The hut is open all year round with the exception of April and November.
From there, hiking trails go to the Teufelstättkopf (45 minutes) or the Sonnenberg (one hour) and crossings to the Brunnenkopfhütte (two to three hours) in the Ettal Forest.
The Pürschlingshaus can be reached from Unterammergau in around two hours, from Oberammergau via the Kolbensattel in around two hours and from Linderhof Castle in around two to three hours. The food offered in the hut is good, down-to-earth and has a commendable price / performance ratio. However, the hut is also very popular, so that a high level of public traffic must be expected, especially in the warmer months of the year.
