Live like Heidi did Mulchenhütte

Mulchenhütte Lauiboden is located amidst the unspoilt natural surroundings of Schilstal, far away from the stress of everyday life. Time appears to have stood still here. Lush Alpine meadows, mountain streams, dark green pine trees and imposing mountains characterise the surroundings. You expect to see Heidi and Peter come out of the alpine hut at any time.

Accommodates up to 6 people, sleeping with woollen blankets in the straw and cooking on a nostalgic stove, just like Heidi. Fresh alpine products such as cheese, butter and milk can be purchased directly from the herdsmen on Alp Lauiboden.
