Lamsenjochhütte

Closed today
Inviting alpine club hut with eco-label below the imposing Lamsenspitze.

Below the spectacular rock faces of the Lamsenspitze and Hochnissl lies the Lamsenjochhütte at 1,953 metres above sea level. During the summer months, the inviting hut offers mountaineers and families with children in good shape an optimal base station for extensive alpine traverses (located directly on the famous Tiroler Adlerweg) and hikes with great views in the Karwendel nature reserve. In summer, you can also stay overnight at the Alpine Club hut by prior reservation. The hut hosts Martina and Christian have been running the hut sustainably since 2004 under the Alpine Club's environmental seal of approval and feed exhausted hikers in the traditional Tyrolean parlour with all kinds of hearty delicacies and local specialities.

OVERNIGHT STAY
During the summer months you can also stay overnight at the idyllic Alpine Club hut from mid-June to mid-October. There is room for up to 126 people in 32 cosy room beds and 88 traditional camp places. In winter, an unlocked emergency room with six places is also available. Modern washrooms and sanitary facilities as well as a drying room mean that no comfort is lacking even in the mountains. A hut sleeping bag is compulsory for the night's lodging. Please reserve your bed in good time by e-mail.

STARTING POINT
The easiest ascent to the Lamsenjochhütte is either by hiking bus or by car from the bus stop at the Eng hiking car park in Hinterriß. From the car park, follow well-signposted hiking trails through the Eng into the Karwendel and up to the Lamsenjochhütte. Alternatively, you can also get to the hut from Vomp or Pertisau - or descend from the hut to one of the two villages in the Inn Valley.

SUMMER TOURS

  • To the Lamsenjochhütte. Demanding and long hike from the Nature Park Info Centre Scharnitz to the Karwendelhaus and further over the small Ahornboden to the Falkenhütte. From here down to the Engalm, back up to the Binsalm and on to the Lamsenjochhütte. It is advisable to spend the night at the Lamsenjochhütte, as it is hardly possible to descend on the same day.

  • Adlerweg. Both stage 8 (starting point Ehrfurter Hütte) and stages 9 and 10 of the famous Tyrolean Eagle Trail are moderately difficult and take several hours via various approaches to the Lamsenjochhütte (starting or finishing point at the Karwendelhaus). The two stages can also be combined with an overnight stay at the Lamsenjochhütte for a spectacular Karwendel crossing from the Achensee to Scharznitz (or vice versa).
