Ludwigsburger Hütte

The Ludwigsburger Hütte (1,935 metres) is a mountain hut on the eastern slopes of the Geigenkamm ridge in the Ötztal Alps.

Family-friendly hut high above the Pitztal Valley
German Alpine Club, Ludwigsburg Division

The location of the Ludwigsburger Hütte on the north-eastern side of the Geigenkamm, which separates the Pitztal Valley from the Ötztal Valley, is ideal for long-distance hikes in the Ötztal Alps as well as for summit tours of varying degrees of difficulty. The hut, built in 1930 as the "Lehnerjochhütte", is located just below the tree line on a beautiful forest meadow and offers a fantastic view of the Kaunergrat ridge from its two large terraces. The Ludwigsburger Hütte is extremely family-friendly, which is shown by the playground on the pasture in front of the house and the eight-metre-high climbing rock above the hut. If you want more, there are a number of peaks above the hut that can be reached via climbing paths. There is room for a total of 65 people in the mattress camps and eight room camps. During the cold season there is a winter room (key from Alpine Club).
