The fantastically located Kemptner Hütte is one of the largest huts in the entire Alpine region. As the hut is also the first destination of the very popular crossing of the Alps from Oberstdorf to Meran, it can get quite crowded here in summer. Especially on Saturdays, guided Alpine crossings occupy many rooms and the sleeping places are fully booked in advance. If you grab another seat, you'll still enjoy your stay: The cabin staff is extremely friendly and can not be disturbed by many hikers.

One of the largest and, in terms of its location, one of the most important huts in the Alps. Since the hut is controlled by numerous long-distance hiking trails, there is a lot going on, especially at weekends, so you should book in advance in advance or postpone your hike during the week.

For all E5 hiking very popular and unfortunately therefore too full for others. The house itself is beautifully embedded below the Großer Krottenkopf and surrounded by lush meadows. Marmots are also available. Nice service and delicious food. I crashed the emergency camp. Class :)

Everything totally relaxed here. We were there within the week, outside the holiday season.
The innkeeper also manages the nearby livestock and is checked in when he returns, which can ever take a bit depending on the mood of the animals.
But no problem, nice atmosphere all.
Only the shoes are not dried.
