Training and conference centre in the heart of the Silvretta Mountains
German Alpine Club Hut, Section Schwaben
Built in 1882, the Jamal Hut enjoyed its first big boom in the 1920’s with the advent of winter tourism, followed by a number of less satisfactory years. Because of its proximity to the Swiss border, the hut was occupied by border guards during the Second World War and an alpine school was also established. The Jamal Hut still serves as a training centre today. With a large and technically well equipped conference room, it hosts many alpine courses, including those for the Tyrolean Mountain Rescue Association. After a devastating avalanche in 1999, the hut was fully repaired and made avalanche safe. The Jamal Hut has been perfectly and lovingly managed by the Lorenz Family from Galtür for four generations.
Well known surrounding mountains: Augstenberg, Jamspitzen, Fluchthorn, Dreiländerspitze.
