Cabin "Brunnenkopf"

Cabin "Brunnenkopf" has everything you need to relax and unwind: a picturesque backdrop and proximity to the wide-open sky.
Discover destination

The Brunnenkopfhütte cabin is extremely popular with hikers because of its Kaiserschmarrn (a local shredded pancake dessert). This is because the landlady Irmi always prepares it freshly according to her secret family recipe. While parents can relax and enjoy a beer after their meal, children can admire, stroke and feed chamois buck Maxl, the cabin mascot, outside. Anyone who fancies livening up the cabin with a bit of music can simply ask the cabin manager Norbert Misniks for an accordion or guitar.

By the way, the mountain cabin also has a royal background – Maximilian II stayed here during his numerous hunting trips in the mountains.
