From hut to hut - 150 years of the German Alpine Club
Waltenberger Haus, Allgäu Alps
Since nature conservation has been part of the DAV charter since 1994, no further huts have been built in the Alps for years. The Waltenberger Haus, which was largely built of wood, replaced a 130-year-old stone house in 2017. It is situated at an altitude of 2084 meters (6,837 ft) and is a station on the Heilbronner Weg, one of the oldest and best-known rock climbs in the northern Alps.
