The seats in front of the hut are particularly popular in summer, with panoramic views of the Serleskamm ridge opposite and the entire Stubai Main Ridge. The Starkenburger Hütte 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 hut sleeps up to 60 people, divided equally between rooms and dormitories with matresses next to each other.
