    Surrounded by the Allgäu Alps, the Kemptner Hütte in its current size, with over 100 beds, has been available to all mountain lovers since 1904. The food here is to die for. I think some people only climb up to enjoy the same thing, not at all to maybe hike further. The products are also largely regionally produced. Highly recommended. It is of course even more advisable to use the hut as a starting point for one of the many great mountain tours in the area. Information, opening hours and accommodation prices for the hut can be found here: kemptner-huette.de.

  • Very nice family hut.
    great food. Beautiful climb, super friendly but unfortunately almost always fully booked for overnight stays as this is the first hut for the E5 Alpine crossing

  • E5 from Oberstdorf comment, after meals continue to Holzgau. I do not volunteer among masses of overnight guests. Hut is almost fully booked by the hiking / mountain guide groups for quite some weeks (or even the year before?).
    Food tastes good!

  • Last overnight stay in the mountains, before civilization takes hold again in the valley.

  • The Kemptner hut at 1,846 meters is the right start for a multi-day tour. As with all mountain huts, first come, first served.

  • If you start from the Rappenseehütte, you can reach the Kemptner Hütte via the Heilbronner Höhenweg. But be careful: Time taken about 7 hours, and it is a bit of condition required and always have the weather in view

  • Well-run cottage, but not a romantic tip! The 100 beds are 190 beds in the camp and when I was there (August 2017) were apparently all occupied.

  • Great hut, good food and really well organized.

    Still, I didn't sleep that well. But that's also part of a tour!

  • Fantastic location with a panorama in all directions, nice hosts. Since there is a lot going on, it is best not to come during peak times.
