Barmer Hütte

The Barmer Hütte (2,610 metres) is an alpine hut in the Rieserferner Massif. It offers walkers, hikers and mountaineers a good meal and a warm bed.

Alpine hut for hikes up to 3,000 metres above sea level
German Alpine Club, Barmen and Wuppertal Division

The Barmer Hütte is located at the foot of many mountains up to 3,000 metres high. Little wonder, then, that it is a popular base for walkers, hikers and mountaineers keen to explore the region. The trail to the hut leads through the Patscher Tal Valley and passes the ruins of the old Barmer Hütte constructed in 1900 but destroyed by an avalanche in 1956. Four years later, the Wuppertal Division of the German Alpine Club rebuilt the hut on the same spot. Today it is open from June until late September. In winter there is an emergency room. Most of the hikes and climbs around the hut are challenging.
