Above the Ahornboden, deep in the heart of the Karwendel Nature Park, lies the Binsalm. Around the active alpine pasture (over 200 hectares of pastureland with dairy cows and young livestock), an unparalleled panorama of peaks stretches over ancient forests that show off a magnificent play of colours in autumn. In summer, the refuge also offers overnight accommodation at 1,500 metres above sea level - an ideal starting point for family hikes and extended (e-)bike and mountain tours. Hungry hikers can expect homemade specialities from Tyrolean cuisine, children are in good hands in the petting zoo and on the playground, and there are even deckchairs on the sun terrace for a digestive nap. Meanwhile, e-bikes can also be charged at the Binsalm with their own charger. From mid-May to the end of October, the Almwirtschaft is also available for private parties; the Larcher host family asks for reservations in good time.
In the warm summer months between May and October, up to 80 people can stay overnight at the Binsalm. Instead of hut sleeping bags, the comfortable two- to five-bed rooms and three traditional mattress dormitories even have real bed linen and modern WCs and washrooms in the corridor. Spontaneous necessities are available in the small equipment shop. Timely reservations are requested in any case.
The starting point to the Binsalm is easily reached by public bus from the final stop at the Eng car park in Hinterriß along picturesque mountain roads. The hikers' car park in Eng, which is subject to a charge, also offers sufficient parking spaces for motorists, and luggage transport from the car park to the hut is also available on request. The alpine pasture can be reached in about forty minutes on foot via a wide footpath.
