The Stuttgarter Hütte's appearance alone perfectly combines the past with the present, helped not least by some sophisticated renovation work. The hut, you see, is really rather old. It was built in 1910 just south of the Krabachjoch ridge, pretty much exactly on the border between Tirol and Vorarlberg, at an altitude of 2,310 metres. It can get quite stormy here, which is why the mountain refuge has suffered damage several times. It is has been repaired every time, much to the delight of the hikers and climbers who are always served very well here. The surrounding mountains contain hikes and climbs for all abilities, including families with children. The hut has showers and mobile phone reception.
