Falkenhütte

Closed today
Listed mountain hut at 1,848 metres below the Lalidererwände in the centre of the Karwendel Nature Park.

The listed Falkenhütte in the heart of the impressive Karwendel Nature Park finally welcomes hiking and biking guests again. For more than three years, the historic refuge was restored and completely renovated in painstaking detail and with a lot of heart and soul according to historical documents. Now, in addition to modern sanitary facilities and 128 traditional camp beds, it even offers visitors its own seminar room during the summer months. E-bikes can also be charged at the family-friendly hut below the imposing Laliderer walls; you have to bring your own suitable charger. The innkeeper Fritz takes care of hungry hikers and (e-)bikers with great dedication and serves local delicacies in the faithfully restored Tyrolean parlour by the crackling tiled stove.

OVERNIGHT STAY
For tours lasting several days in the extensive Karwendel Nature Park, the Falkenhütte has a total of 18 room beds and 128 traditional campsites with modern sanitary facilities. A separate seminar room can also be used on request, please book in advance in any case. During the winter months, the refuge also offers emergency sleeping accommodation with eight camp beds, stove, firewood and blankets (no water!).

STARTING POINT
The starting point of the hike to the Falkenhütte can be reached by train from Lenggries railway station, by regional bus (mid-June to mid-October) from the bus stop at the Eng car park on well-signposted hiking and biking trails. If you prefer to travel by car via the toll road, there are plenty of parking spaces at the Eng car park, which is subject to a charge.
