Notes on staying at an Alpine lodge:

  • You must bring your own sleeping bag and pillow case - a hut sleeping bag does not provide sufficient warmth. Blankets and pillowcases are NOT available in the cabins due to Covid19;
  • Bring your own mouth/nose mask
  • On most huts, card payment is not possible. Take enough cash with you for food and drinks.
  • Due to their location, not all huts can offer running water, hot water or showers. In some cases there is also no flushing system in the toilets.
  • Dogs on request; not allowed in the sleeping areas. Attended stay in the winter room possible, partly dog kennels available, extra costs to be paid on spot. In Austria there is a general linen and muzzle requirement!

Due to environmental reasons we recommend to arrive and depart by public transportation.
