In the hut is after the first entrance door, which is unlocked, a small shelter in bad weather. Unfortunately, there is no barbecueThe small hut was built in 1899 and today is operated by the Swabian Albverein. It is the highest located hostel of the Albverein. However, it is also the simplest of all hiking homes. Electricity and water have not reached the hut yet. The location below the crest of the Lochensteines is extremely beautiful. Above a beautiful mountain meadow, you can look over these to the heights of the Großer Heuberg and sometimes even to the Alps. From Lochenstein itself (only slightly above the hut) offers a wide view out into the foothills and over to the middle and northern Black Forest. The Balinger mountains with Hörnle, Lochenstein, Schafberg and Plettenberg show steep crashes and are already a bit of a high mountain character.
