Stöcklalm (1.755m) - Gontal – Muhr

Alpine Pleasure

Mountain hut experience „Holz kliabn – wood chopping“: That farmer’s got it good, because he has enough wood outside the hut”, is a popular saying in Lungau.

Wood stacked outside the hut, browned from the sun, nicely sized and oven dry is the promise of a good life and the comfort of a crackling fire in the oven. The knack of splitting and quartering wood with an axe can be discovered at the Stöcklalm, as well as the art of stacking it properly. Those interested can try it out for themselves. The hut landlords will also tell you about what else chopped logs are useful for and why they are absolutely indispensable.

Stöcklalm Alpine Pleasure
The wood used for baking bread is carefully selected and counted exactly. The Stöcklalm hut owners take this very seriously, because deliciously juicy homemade bread requires carefully selected and correctly chopped wood. Homemade bread served with various types of cheese is the Stöcklalm speciality.
Opening times: Mid June to mid September
