As We Say in Bavaria: There’s No Such Thing as Sin at the ‘Alm’...
but there is a great variety of Bavarian treats and beautiful views of the Bavarian Alps. Numerous mountain huts offer rustic comfort far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and are sure to make your walking holiday unforgettable.
“We certainly deserve this!” is what you’ll say when you arrive at one of the mountain huts and look forward to a real Bavarian mountain snack after a great hike, tiring bike tour or a leisurely walk through the alpine summer pastures.
The ‘Alms’ – summer alpine pastures and mountain huts – belong to the Bavarian Alps just as much as the feeling of anticipation that our guests have when they think about hiking in the Alps. Bavaria – especially the Ruhpolding valley – has many beautiful ‘Alms’, each one of them well taken care of. Most of the mountain huts are open from spring into autumn. The herdsmen treat their hungry guests to plenty of homemade treats – from cheese to speck and alpine buttermilk. The Bavarian Alps are delicious!
