Alpine Huts

In former times, the "Alm" provided accommodations for herdsmen and dairymaids while the cattle were allowed to graze up on the high pastures. In these days the idyllic places offer all the comforts Alpine you need.

Over the generations, creamy butter and full-flavored cheese were made between the milking stall, stables and kitchen. Many of these huts have been preserved to this day, providing hikers in search of a bit of tradition with food and drink. The ideal mountain hut needs to have a rustic flavor, to be authentic and traditional. After a beautiful hike up, you are greeted by traditional hearty regional cooking. A delicious bread with country bacon on top, a glass of cool buttermilk and, afterwards, a sweet farmhouse doughnut straight out of the pan. And when your host pulls his accordion out of the box, the idyll is complete.
