The history of our cabin

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”.
