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.
The following huts and alpine pastures are open during the summer months in the Gernkogel and Geisterberg area:
Haibenalm (alpine pasture Haiben)
Haibenalm has been farmed since summer 2017 in the middle of the hiking area of the Salzburg alpine pasture hiking path. Homemade specialties are offered here and the milk is processed from our own cows. Come and be pampered at 1,600 meters and enjoy the fantastic view of St. Johann in Salzburg.

You can get here with the Alpendorf Bergbahnen gondola lift. Luggage transport is possible on request.
