German Alpine Club Hut, Section Bamberg
The first Bamberg hut was built in 1893 in the Sella Group in the Dolomite Mountains, but was expropriated in 1919 by the Treaty of Saint. The Bamberg Section looked around for a new site and made a good choice in the Hopfgartner ski lodge at Salzachjoch in the Kitzbühel Alps. The magnificent alpine meadows, romantically wild alpine lakes and surrounding mountain slopes are a unique sight to behold. The hut has been extensively renovated and was renamed „Neue Bamberger Hütte - New Bamberg Hut“ in 1960. It is particularly popular with hikers and ski touring enthusiasts. The proprietor cooks personally for his guests, who will find comfortable lodgings for 90 persons, with shower and drying facilities. The freight cable car is generally available for luggage transport (no fee charged).
Well known surrounding mountains: Schafsiedel, Aleitenspitze, Schwebenkopf, Tristkopf, Kröndlhorn.
