German Alpine Club Hut, Section Geltendorf
The beautiful Martinsbergalm mountain meadows high above Zirl, where the Neue Magdeburger Hut now stands, were once used for summer hay making. Later on, a hunting lodge was built here and given the name, „Solstein Hut“ because of its location beneath the Großer und Kleiner Solstein Mountains. It was then acquired by the Magdeburg and Geltendorf Sections of the German Alpine Club. A good decision, because now both the alpine pastures and mountain enthusiasts benefit from a particularly inviting mountain refuge and guest house with original character and great food. The atmosphere is gregarious, not only at the fair day celebrations and musician meets that are held here, but also when the visitors frequently break into song. There is a small children’s playground in front of the hut and a rock climbing area in varying levels of difficulty nearby.
Well known surrounding mountains: Großer and Kleiner Solstein, Hechenberg, Kirchbergköpfl.
