At their feet, there is the turquoise Formarinsee, opposite an impressive rock formation known as the Rote Wand. Kathrin and Florian Mittermayr work at an altitude of 1,931 metres in the Freiburger Hütte, voted “Austria’s loveliest spot”. This accolade by the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation went to the Formarinsee and the Rote Wand in 2015.
The menu of the Freiburger Hütte includes typical Austrian fare such as bacon dumpling soup, Kässpätzle and cold cuts served on a platter. The couple ensures sustainability and regionally sourced products.
The view in the morning

Inside the Freiburger Hütte
In the morning the sun bathes the Rote Wand in a fascinating light. We know at such moments that this is where we belong.
Kathi and Florian are passionate athletes in their all-too-short free time: whether cycling, mountain biking and, it goes without saying skiing – the couple spends every free minute enjoying the great outdoors. The hut is their pride and joy: watching the sun setting on the Rote Wand, they couldn’t imagine life being any better than this.
A trip out to the Steinerne Meer. It takes about an hour and a half, two hours, from our hut. You must be sure-footed, however. The view you get is magnificent.”
