Escape from the daily grind and forget all your commitments and deadlines for a short while – a stay in a mountain cabin will clear your head – and is only a hike away from the station. Off we go then.
The Tutzinger Hütte cabin is in the Bavarian Prealps at the bottom of the North face of the Benediktenwand ridge and impresses with tasty snacks and cosy rooms for the night.
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.
In addition, the Füssener Hütte cabin is in an area with no phone reception, which means you can quickly forget daily life. Above all if you spend the night there – there are 65 spaces to sleep.
The Bednar family provides everything you need to feel comfortable and happy in the Tegelberghaus cabin – the schnitzel portions are huge and it's cosy and warm in the shared bedrooms. And if the weather gods are kind, you can get a clear view of Neuschwanstein castle on the house for free. By the way, the mountain cabin also has a royal background – Maximilian II stayed here during his numerous hunting trips in the mountains.
The self-catering cabin with 31 spaces to sleep is still a hidden gem. Due to its secluded location, the Falkenberghaus cabin is also excellently suited for birthdays or other celebrations.
Although, and perhaps because the Kösseinehaus cabin in Upper Franconia has more than 100 years of history under its belt, it has become a rest stop for hikers. You can spend the night in one of the 21 beds for just EUR 25 (incl. breakfast).
Whether on a day's hike or as part of a 3-day trip up Zugspitze (Germany's highest mountain) – the Reintalangerhütte cabin in the Wetterstein mountains isn't short on visual appeal and provides a place to stay for the night for up to 132 people. In the Höllentalangerhütte cabin there are 106 places to sleep for tired hikers and bikers.
