Walking in the mountains can be unpredictable. Hikers who run into bad weather or injure themselves on the Augsburg High Trail between the Ansbacher Hütte and the Augsburger Hütte will be relieved to reach the Augsburg Bivouac. This steel shelter is located on the Parseierscharte ridge (2,607 metres), where it is securely anchored into the rock. Inside the refuge there are four sleeping spaces, but there are no cooking facilities or heating. Near the bivouac there is a challenging descent via the Flirscher Parseier back down into the valley to the village Flirsch.
