Well, what can I say? A unique experience. Not sure how/where to start really.
Ok, here goes. A hütte is not easily translated. In fact it doesn’t. Hut? Hostel? Chalet? Bothy?
It is an Alpine hostel in one of the German speaking parts, which will usually have both food and basic accommodation. This one is owned and operated by the Bochum branch of the DAV - the German Alpine climbing organisation.
Located at Kelchalm, above Aurach (just south of Kitzbühel) it is 1,432m above sea level. That’s over 4,500 ft. For a Brit, that is high. Very high.
It’s a 30 minute steep uphill hike from the summer car park. A 2 hour hike in winter.
The rooms are basic, but warm and comfortable. You share a toilet at the end of the corridor, and there’s a shower room downstairs - buy a token at the bar for a 5 minute splash. Our room had its own washbasin, but with some it will also be shared.
You get a simple but excellent buffet breakfast between 8 and 9. They do food and drink all day - see my resto tip.
The views from the terrace are wonderful. The fellow guests and the managers are friendly.
On the first morning I was wakened by cowbells outside my window at 6am. Magical. I was able to go out and watch the dawn from the terrace. Yawned all day, of course...
Check the website for more info - German only, I’m afraid. Not sure about prices - my friend paid.
The location; the simplicity; the views
Very accommodating. Always willing to help. Inexpensive. Close to centre.
Got our group all sorted relatively easily considering there are 27 of us.
This very pretty B&B is in a great location approx. 3 minutes walk to the centre of Kitzbuhel. The staff are helpful.
Breakfast of cereal, bread and cold meats included. Apartments also available.
You are pretty much left to your own devices, which is nice, but there is always someone around if you do need assistance with anything.
Other Qualities :
Next to busstop.
3 min walk to centre.
Across road from supermarket (Billa)
This was indeed a first class hotel: very well equipped, appartment like rooms and free broad band connect in room.
However, dont come here!!
This hotel is partly owned by the management consultancy McKinsey and served as a training center of its German office. It is almost like another McK office and for a tourist, I'm sured you'll be greatly annoyed by the working atmosphere here in this hotel, something you definitely dont want to see during a vacation.
But strange enough, many McK employees chose to spend their family vacations here. God!
On the outskirts of the town and very convenient for transport links. The rooms are small and basic, but if not street facing, have a balcony overlooking the garden.
The town centre is a 10 minute walk along the river, and the Horn's lift station is even closer.
Meals are good quality although I would be careful on Chinese night (Liver stir fry!!).
The staff are friendly although they do not speak much english.
If you want to enjoy Kitzbuehel's magnificent mountain area, but don't want to stay in the busy city - stay in Bichlach, which is a hilly area northwest of the town (bichl is the austrian expression for little hills).
The Berger family do have a calf livestock, and offer rooms and appartments.
The farm is very quitely located in the area northwest of Kitzbuehel, the view on Wilder Kaiser massif is magnificent, you can do extended little hikes within the Bichlach area, or around Kitzbuehel.
Stunningly beautiful. Several pools, whirlpools, saunas. Incredible. Lippanzer horses, petting farm for Kids. Indoor waterfall. Top notch restaurants.
My friends D&K stayed here for a week. My friend D said that after 4 days he was embarrased by how much they pampered him. Even the elevators are all hand done in wood.
A great, family owned hotel. It has 30 rooms. They serve breakfast, and the owner Herr Lämmerer will do anything to make you feel more comfortable. If you are just looking for a place to sleep this is a great place.
Very close (3 minute walk) to the ski area. Can sleep 4 to a room (will be crowded). $80 per night for the first 2 people, $60 for extra people. Has a great sauna. You have to check out the softboiled egg in the picture.
This guesthouse is run by the Schroll family, which is headed by 2 very sweet old ladies! Very Tyrolean guesthouse and rooms, all rooms have balconies with excellent views, a restaurant with echt Austrian food, and small bar.
The Sport Hotel is located up in the mountains, which guarantees some specatular scenary! In the winter, one is able to ski right out the backdoor and down to the bus stop and then the bus takes you to the slopes! At the end of the day, one is able to ski right back down to the Sport Hotel!
