The Kapfhütte is open all year round as a shelter for hikers. Up here there is a fantastic view over the Elztal, over to the Kinzigtal, up to the Brandenkopf and into the distance up to the Hornisgrinde, the highest mountain in the northern Black Forest.
From May to the end of October it is hosted on Sundays and public holidays. Outside of these times, catering for groups is possible on request. Otherwise the hut is freely accessible.

Beautiful hut with many rest areas in the outdoor area - even a barbecue and a sunbathing area are available. On a metal plate next to the summit cross the environment is shown and helps to assign different "Landmarks" of the great view.

You have to work your way up to the hut. If this is done, you will be rewarded with a beautiful view of the valleys below. You can even fortify yourself at the hut on public holidays. If it rains, the hut offers a shelter that can also be used for overnight stays during long-distance hikes.
