Stage of the Eagle Walk
What a beautiful day on the mountains: to start with you can enjoy the stunning „Lechtaler“ peaks and the profusion of vibrant, alpine plants, before the welcoming blue and yellow shutters of the Leutkircher Hut entice you over. This is a great place to stop, as it is well known for its excellent cuisine. A member of the „So schmecken die Berge – That’s what mountains taste like“ campaign, meals are created using delicious, local produce. The hut has also received the “Eco label” award; proof that it is managed according to ecological guidelines. The lodgings are pleasantly furnished and service is exemplary. You can safely take their tongue in cheek slogan, „Look in, but not past!“ seriously here. The Leutkircher Hut is on the Tiroler Adlerweg (Tirolean Eagle Walk) and the Lechtaler Höhenweg – Lech Valley High Trail, which leads from Zürs to Imst.
Well known surrounding mountains: Stanskogel, Hirschpleiskopf, Bacher, Weißschrofenspitze.
