There is something special about a traditional alpine hut covered in snow in winter. One of the finest anywhere in Tirol is the Stablalm, perched on a sunny plateau above the Lechtal Valley and easily accessible via a hiking path. From its majestic position 1412 metres above sea level it offers fabulous views of the meandering Lech river and iconic mountains in the valley such as the Pfeilspitze and the Kreuzspitze. Those who have worked up a hunger hiking to the hut will be pleased to know that the Stablalm serves a selection of culinary highlights from the Lechtal Valley.
