    An absolute "must" on the tour, because the Hochbichlhütte at the "Erwin" is an iconic, extremely child-friendly Alm with delicious food (the flambéed curry sausage is the hit) and drinks (the Erwin asks for "diesel").
    This stop is also called "Canape Erwin", because there are many couches on the Alm in which it can relax wonderfully.
    Compared to the World Cup ski lodge (directly below the mountain station of the Ofterschwangbahn), the Hochbichelhütte (10-15 minutes from the World Cup ski lodge) is definitely to be preferred.
    But beware: you should not be late for Erwin. Depending on the position of the sun and the season, the sun may disappear in October around 3.30 pm behind the "horns" and a nice place in a sofa set without sun would be a pity.

    Great stopover possibility. It's worth it. Delicious food at fair prices.

    The Hochbichl hut
    popularly known as "Canapée Hut" or "Sofa Hut", is one of the most famous destinations on the Ofterschwanger Horn!

    Its nickname owes you to the resourceful landlord, who never tires of organizing "new" old leather sofas and armchairs, on which they sit admirably. Have you ever been in the sunshine with ski boots and winter jacket, holding a cool drink on a leather sofa and let the sun shine in your face? NO? But then it's time!

    The hut with a large children's playground is naturally reachable in summer from the top station of the World Cup Express in 20 minutes. An Eldorado for adults and children, guests, summer visitors and locals!
