The Starkenburger Hut looks quaint and welcoming. And it certainly delivers what it promises. The seats in front of the hut are particularly popular in summer, with panoramic views of the Serleskamm opposite and the entire Stubai Main Ridge. The Starkenburger Hut is accessible by mountain bike along beautiful forest trails. Because of space limitations, it is advisable that groups book in advance during the holiday season and on weekends. The water for the hut is collected in a cistern and is entirely dependent on rainfall and levels of consumption. For this reason, hot summers present the added challenge of saving water. There is plenty of opportunity to play. Young alpinists can satisfy their natural need for activity on a climbing frame or a small ferrata, where they can also climb over boulders.
Well known surrounding mountains: Gamskogel, Hoher Burgstall.
