Almliesl RANT-539 - General information

Dreamy, romantic, and exquisitely beautiful

Small enough to be an insider’s secret, but large enough to offer a wide range of options. The hut, with its shingle roof, stone walls, and wood-panelled cosy “Stube” room stands proudly in front of the majestic mountain scenery of the Murtal, and has done despite years of wind and weather. The sun, wind, and snow just make it more and more beautiful each year.

Not only does it have an original wood burning stove, nostalgic farm furniture, creaky wooden floorboards, and rustic cosy living room, but also an outside sauna hut. The bedroom especially has been furnished with much love and attention to detail, using plenty of light-coloured wood. And, just like in the olden days, the beds stand behind each other, and the bedroom is only accessible from outdoors via a staircase.

The “Sophie Hut” next door is very practical, and a place where you can indulge yourself with local delicacies, for we all know that whilst on holiday, it’s nice not to have to cook all the time. Surrounded by woodland and birdsong, it is easy to switch off here and leave everyday life behind you. In front of this charming hut, there is seating (some under cover), and a stone barbecue for relaxing evenings.

In winter, Ranten is somewhere that offers an extensive network of cross-country skiing trails, an ice rink, and curling. Skiers will find what they are looking for at the nearby ski area of Kreischberg.

Trip: The Kreischberg! This has been well-known since January 2015, if not before, as it was the venue for the freestyle and snowboard World Championships. The ski area is just 13 km away, and has 29 km of snow sure pistes.

Access: Un-tarred mountain road. Snow chains are recommended in winter

Pure nature

Get up, take your wash things out of the hut and take the opportunity of a very different morning wash at the spring with a breathtaking view of the mountains, forests and meadows.

For the young mountaineers

Treasure hunts, investigating insects, building dams, counting stars: a holiday in the mountains promises plenty of adventure for the whole family.

A holiday for two

Peace, the rustle of wind in the trees, birdsong; lovely to enjoy with a partner. "Almliesl" offers the ideal places for holidays for couples.
