Mountain idyll with a romantic lake and waterfall
German Alpine Club Hut, Section Hof
At the Winnebach Hut you can get a taste of not only mountain air, but sea air too, because it is located next to Lake Winnebachsee above Gries in the Sulztal Valley. An imposing waterfall is yet another feast for the eyes. When the board of Section Frankfurt an der Oder saw „this beautiful part of the world in high alpine wilderness“, it was decided that a base for climbers would be established here. An excellent idea, as one really is in mountain paradise here; the hut is well equipped and managed - and the food is great. There are a few additional amenities: a freight cable car for luggage transport from Winnebachhof is available and a popular via Ferrate route is nearby.
Well known surrounding mountains: Riml-Spitz, Gänsekragen, Winnebacher Weißkogel, Breiter Grießkogel, Hoher Seeblaskogel, Vordere Winnebachspitze.
