Situated in the beautiful mountain landscape of Avelengo, close to the renowned Meran 2000 hiking area in neighbouring Falzeben, Karls Hütte was fully renovated in 2019, has 3 floors with 2 bedrooms, a large combined kitchen/living area, a bathroom and a sunny terrace.
Constructed using local timber, the cabin offers a true back-to-nature experience. The scents of the forest and the pine wood will ensure perfect relaxation and refreshing sleep during your stay. And why not try the healing stress-relief of a “forest bath”?
Enjoy the peace and quiet as you relax in the sun on our terrace after a health-giving hike, read a good book, or savour a tasty meal. And when it's time for a change, the nearby town of Merano offers all sorts of shopping and entertainment options.
Warm-hearted, welcoming and a wine connoisseur, Elisabeth receives her guests with open arms and loves to share her local knowledge and gourmet insider tips with them. And her good mood is infectious!
Mountaineer, traveller, craftsman and hobby-farmer, Andi knows every peak and hiking track. And he knows the cycle tracks even better!
Vegetarian and a calming influence, Frida is pretty much the landlady here when Andreas and Elisabeth are away. Every so often, she'll poke her nose through the fence, just to make sure all is well.
— Frida, beeeehhh

Your holiday apartment at Merano 2000 near Avelengo, Merano
Karls Hütte has a long tradition, having been passed down through three generations to its current owner, Andreas, who now takes care of the cabin, the surrounding woods and the animals. For centuries, local farmers have brought their animals to graze the fresh alpine pastures in late spring and stayed here with them throughout the summer, away from the heat of the valleys. They built the cabins in the meadows to live in. Andreas' grandfather acquired our cabin in the 1950's and it has been a central part of family life ever since. After the family moved to a larger house nearby, the little cabin in the woods was only used for short stays, but Andreas' father, Karl, would still set out every day on foot to visit his “retreat”, to spend time with the animals and to keep an eye on things. In 2018, the house was completely renovated and Andreas, who now manages the farmstead, decided to name it “Karls Hütte” in memory of his father: “I love the peace and quiet of the mountains and being at one with nature. In Karls Hütte I can let go and relax. I like to close my eyes and just drink in the stillness of my surroundings. And sometimes, in my mind's eye, I can still see my father making his way up the path to the cabin and hear him say, as he always did, “Whatever happens, Andreas – the world will still keep turning”.
