A mountain hut in the Tyrolian Alps

A window of a cabin in the Tyrolian mountains. These mountain huts in the Alps are called "Almen" and were used by farmers, shepherds and travellers during the summers. Today, they often host small bars or restaurants serving light meals for heavy prices.

You can rent cabins ranging from basic huts to luxury chalets for your hiking vacation in the summer or skiing vacation in the winter. It is a popular thing to rent an Alm for New Year's Eve parties.
