The Lamsenjoch Hut in Karwendel has a beautiful neighbour: the Lamsenspitze Peak, whose impressive splendour is only accessible to skilled and experienced climbers. The Lamsenjoch Hut, however, is well 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. It opened in 1906, only to be destroyed by an avalanche in 1908. So 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.
Well known surrounding mountains: Lamsenspitze, Hochnissl, Sonnjoch, Schafjöchl.
