The HELFENBERGER HÜTTE in the picturesque Bohemian Forest at 840 m invites nature lovers and active recreational athletes. It is located directly on the Nordwaldkammweg and is therefore the ideal starting point for various cycling and hiking tours in summer. Due to the traffic-free location, it is also ideal for families. In winter, a cross-country ski run passes right by the hut and there are countless opportunities for snowshoe tours. The hut is run as a self-catering hut and is particularly suitable for families, school classes and other groups. It is ideal for hiking days, project weeks, introductory days as well as seminars and exams. The large meadow land in a sunny, quiet location makes your stay an adventure holiday in the middle of nature!
