Mountain Huts & Alpine Refuges
Where hospitality is a priority32 Alpine pasture huts and snack stations plus 12 refuge huts provide fresh energy along the extensive hiking trail network of Sölden. On the sunny terraces with overwhelming views, traditional dishes like bacon dumplings, cheese spaetzle and Kaiserschmarrn are served after having conquered loads of altitude meters. Some Alpine inns, snack stations and mountain restaurants are easily accessible on cart trails or by mountain lifts, and make a great outing destination even in unstable weather. At the very top - from every point of view - there is the glass-covered ice Q gourmet temple, spoiling guests with toque-awarded gourmet creations at the peak of Gaislachkogl.
