“Being a member of the Alpine Association will pay off here – overnight stays cost considerably less.”

Preparation for the activity Reserve a place to sleep – and turn up, too
Mobile phones and e-mail have made a lot of things easier – even hut access. Nevertheless, don’t forget that huts are not hotels and that places to sleep there are limited. In addition, a quarter of the slots can’t be reserved owing to a compromise between the huts and the Deutscher Alpenverein. So, if you’re planning to overnight at one or more huts during a tour, please be fair to others and turn up – or inform the host in good time that you are cancelling. This may keep the host from having to turn away somebody else.
