IMPORTANT for an overnight stay in a mountain hut in summer 2020:
Without a reservation, no sleeping place can be allocated. Overnight stays are only possible with your own warm sleeping bag, because no additional blankets or beds can be provided in the huts. Every guest needs their own mouth and nose protection, as the minimum distance of 1 meter cannot be maintained in all areas.
The hut is located at an altitude of 2361 m.
