Feel like home in the mountains

What would a day of skiing or tobogganing be without a bite to eat once you've well and truly tired yourself out? Not half as fun! Luckily, Hoch-Imst offers two wonderful rustic hut restaurants where you can snuggle up in a cosy corner or sun yourself on the terrace as you recharge your batteries for the rest of your
daily activities.

Latschenhütte: Traditional, cosy, friendly

Latschenhütte, which is tucked away some 1,623 metres in the mountains, is described by its regulars as a cosy, rustic spot offering
authentic Tyrolean fare.

Landlady Mrs Waltraud is in her element up in her mountain retreat. A true advocate of 'old school' gastronomy, she is always eager to serve her guests her fantastic range of mountain specialities with a big smile and a pinch of humour thrown in for good measure. Here you'll find a tasty Kasspatzln, a cheesy dish of traditional egg noodles from the region, alongside the famous Sauerkraut salad, not to mention the legendary Kaiserschmarrn pancake for those with a sweet tooth. 

Little mountain explorers and intrepid tobogganers will feel particularly at home at Latschenhütte; Mrs Waltraud has a soft spot for children and loves nothing more than to thoroughly spoil them! The rooms at Latschenhütte exude traditional Alpine cosiness with their stone and wood finish. Just outside, the wooden carousel built by Mr Waltraud is waiting for little ones to climb aboard - yet another highlight for the kids after a day of winter sports.

Untermarkter Alm (U-Alm): Stylish but down-to-earth

Skiers looking for a spot to kick back in the winter sun, fun park goers chilling out after a day of catching air and ravenous winter hikers and tobogganers... All come together at the U-Alm, just next to the Imster Bergbahnen halfway station some 1,500 metres above sea level. Alongside typical Tyrolean lunches including Brettljause, (the Ploughman's of the mountain) and various types of Knödeln (dumplings), the famous U-Alm burger is the star of the show here.

In 2012, an old ski hut burnt down at Hoch-Imst and in its place, the U-Alm was built. The new building complex comprises a wood-panelled restaurant space made from local Alpine trees, 30 beds made from fragrant Swiss pine, as well as a modern seminar room. This space is a brilliant combination of traditional ski hut, trendy office space and comfy sleeping spot, complete with a large terrace and flooded with sunlight throughout.
