HISTORY

The Geltenhütte was originally used for farmers. The hut had a lower standpoint Current alpinists came up in early days for tours.

In 1940, an avalanche destroit the accommodation. The SAC rebuilt the hut.

In a few years, more and more people discovered the alps and there was not enough place any more.  

In 1969 many voluntaries built the new hut at the currents standpoint.

2014 the SAC Oldenhorn  renovated the hut and also a own water hydro was buildet.

What started small and simple became to a comfortable accommodation in the alps.

 

We should never forget, that we are on  2002m and no road is coming up.
