Hiking up to Tutzinger Hütte cabin near Benediktbeuern

After a around two-and-a-half hours of hiking from the station you will reach the rustic Tutzinger Hütte cabin.

To destination

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.

Cabin "Brunnenkopf"

Rest and relaxation in the Ammergau Alps

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

To 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.

The Füssener Hütte cabin features deer antlers on the walls, weather-worn wooden façades and long beer tables.

To destination

Cabin "Tegelberghaus"

Hiking and feasting in the Allgäu

A cabin for the heart: Cabin "Tegelberghaus" offers splendid panoramic views and delicious food, and is also the ideal starting point for setting off on a hike.

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