The lush Tannheimer Tal Valley and craggy mountain peaks rising above provide a spectacular backdrop to the Otto-Mayr-Hütte, a mountain refuge at the end of the Reintal Valley in the Tannheim Mountains. The surrounding area is ideal for long hikes through the green meadows as well as challenging rock climbing on sheer pitches, making it popular with families, hikers and mountaineers. The food is hearty and the accommodation (a mixture of rooms and dormitories) is cosy. There is a separate room for dogs. The hut is open from May until October. The hut is not far from the Willi-Merkl-Gedächtnishütte, a self-catering hut.
