The Kashütte was built in the 17th century. Combined efforts succeeded, in the summer of 2018, in transporting the hut and rebuilding it on the Hirschbichl. Today, the Kashütte offers an informal and homely atmosphere. It serves typical Tyrolean fare. Two double rooms are available for overnight stays.
