Lamsenjochhütte

The Lamsenjochhütte (1,953 metres) is a German Alpine Club mountain refuge at the foot of the Lamsenspitze peak and an important base for hikes in the Karwendel Mountains, Tirol.

The Lamsenjochhütte in the Karwendel Mountains has a beautiful neighbour: the Lamsenspitze peak, whose impressive splendour is only accessible to skilled and experienced climbers. The Lamsenjochhütte, however, is easily accessible for hikers and therefore a very popular day trip destination coming up from the Engalm or Gramaialm. On stopping for refreshments, one ought to spare a though for the "Alpine Sherpas" who lugged the materials required to build this hut up from the valley over steep snow fields. The hut opened in 1906, only to be destroyed by an avalanche in 1908. It was built anew, but this time in a more protected location. Today the hut is in top form, well equipped and bearer of the Environmental Seal of Quality award.
