On the 1st of Advent in 2009 we opened our “Neue Gehlberger Hütte” on the 978 m high Schneekopf.
It is the highest located hut and hiking hostel in Thuringia at 964 m asl.
With the new hut, as a summiteer you can enjoy a rest stop on the second highest mountain in the Thuringian Forest after a break of almost 50 years.
The old “Gehlberger Hütte” had existed here until 1961.
Since 2002 we have been dealing privately with the "Snow Head Adventure".
At that time, the thoughts for a new hut on the mountain ripened until in 2006 the course was finally set for the start of construction.
You saw the groundbreaking for the construction of the hut in September 2007.
The hut has 45 seats in the guest room and 50 seats on the terrace for you to linger.
After a long day of hiking, you can warm up and feel good at the crackling fire in the fireplace.
We will be happy to spoil you with our homemade delicacies from traditional Thuringian recipes and culinary hut treasures - such as the edible snow head ball.
In our hiking hostel you can bed your tired head at an altitude of almost 1000 m.
Our hut has three multi-bed rooms with a total of 19 beds, sanitary facilities with showers - separate for men and women - and a lounge.
We will be happy to provide you with a snack - Thuringian sausage, ham and cheese - and cold drinks.
