Located at the foot of the Rauhe Nadel mountain, close to the Austrian/German boder, the Taubenseehütte hut and nearby Taubensee lake are home to a hike suitable for families with children. The "Eye of the Chiemgau Region", as the lake is also known, does not in fact take its name from "Tauben" ("doves") but from an old word for "crabs" ("Dauppen").
- There is a play area next to the Taubenseehütte hut for children and the young at heart.
- The hut offers fantastic views of the Berchtesgaden Mountains, the Loferer Rocky Mountains, the Hohe Tauern Mountains, the Kitzbühel and Zillertal Alps as far as the craggy peaks of the Kaiser Mountains.
- Traditional food is served at the hut. Highlights include barley soup, dumpling soup, "Kaiserschmarrn" (thick pancake with raisins) and homemade cakes.
- The Taubensee lake has a water temperatue of around 24°C in summer, making it the ideal place for a refreshing swim.
