Huts & alpine pastures

Refreshment stops in summer

A good snack is just part of a perfect day on the mountain in the Austrian Alps – our huts and alpine pastures are here for that. Take a break and let our hut hosts in the Salzburger Land spoil you with culinary delights – mostly with products from their own farms.
