    Many paths lead to the Hellerhütte.
    The steamed noodles are a dream!
    Apparently well organized. We did not have long waiting times at the 2 counters.

    Located in the middle of the forest. Large hut with management. When the weather is nice to sit outside in the sun. Good Palatine home cooking.

    _The hut in the Palatinate Forest, not accessible by car. Check opening hours on the website, these are regularly adjusted to the demand.

    Many roads lead here, very well located but unfortunately on holidays or weekends overcrowded. Still worthwhile.
    Very good food, especially Thursday steamed noodles with either vanilla or wine sauce. With potato soup. With the best steamed noodles in the area.
    And Friday Schnitzeltag, not to despise.

    Great cabin! Large outdoor area with plenty of seating and playground, good organization (short waits despite lunch rush hour), varied menu beyond the 'usual' hut food and reasonable prices.

    The Hellerhütte, also called Hellerplatzhaus, is located west of the Kalmit on a mountain saddle. There is no public access. The Hellerhütte is centrally located in a huge hiking area that stretches between Neustadt / Lamprecht in the north and Totenkopftal in the south. There is a large playground in front of the hut.
