Augsburger Hütte

The Augsburger Hütte (2,298 metres) is a German Alpine Club mountain refuge hut. It offers food and accommodation to hikers on the Lech High Trail and the Augsburg High Trail.

The Augsburger Hütte is a traditional mountain hut built between 1885 and 1891. Despite being well over 100 years old, “she” still looks great and is very well equipped thanks to extensive renovation work as early as 1907 and continuing all the way through to a comprehensive modernisation in the 1990s. Perched on a rocky outcrop, the hut nestles on the southern slopes of the Gatschkopf mountain, offering stunning views of the highest peaks in the Lechtal Alps. A convenient base along the Lech High Trail and the Augsburg High Trail, it is a popular place for hikers to take a break and a welcome stopover for many challenging long-distance walks. Reaching the hut is not particularly easy; mountaineering skills are required for the ascent from the Lechtal Valley in particular. Well-known surrounding mountains: Parseier Spitze, Dawinkopf,  Gatschkopf, Blankahorn.
