Coburger hut

Coburger hut is the major hut of the western part of the Mieminger Kette. Located at a spectecular position, Coburger hut is fine place to stay. Views towards Zugspitze are great and the surrounding mountains of the Mieminger Kette complete the splendid panorama. Very close to the hut the splendid Drachensee (dragon lake) with its crystal clear water catches your eyes.
The owner of the hut created a climbing area. The difficulties of the routes are between UIAA III and VI with a height of about 12 metres.

The hut is not open all the year. Depending on weather and snow conditions the times vary a bit, but normally the hut is open from June to Octobre. During the winter months a winter room with 10 beds is available. The required key is placed near the door.

Access routes

There are several ways of getting to Coburger hut. The most common are:

From Ehrwald via Ehrwalder Alm

Trailhead is the parkinglot of the "Ehrwalder Alm" - cable railway (1100m / 3609ft). From here trail #812 / #31 leads up to Ehrwalder Alm (1493m / 4898ft). If you take the cable railway you' ll save about 0.5-1 hour. From Ehrwalder Alm follow "Knappensteig" (trail #34) up to the beautiful Seebensee (Seeben lake, 1657m / 5437ft). From there the hut is visible already and reached after another 0.5-1 hour. This trail is an easy hike with no difficulties, but its long (about 8km).

From Ehrwald via Hoher Gang

Its the same trailhead again, but you' ll have to catch trail #37. This one doesn' t start directly on the parking lot, but if you follow the road towards Ehrwald for a few houndret metres you' ll see it on the left side. Hoher Gang itself is quite steep and leads up to Seebensee directly. At Seebensee continue on trail #34 from Ehrwalder Alm.

From Biberwier via Biberwierer Scharte

Trailhead is the parking lot in Biberwier (about 1000m / 3300ft). Follow Knappensteig (trail #28) up to Biberwierer Scharte (2000m / 6562ft). From there trail #814 leads on to Coburger hut. Because of its steepness this trail is good for quick descents or ascents. If you want to summit Ehrwalder Sonnenspitze or Drachenkopf this approach is a good option.

Southern approach via Grünsteinscharte

If you' re on the south side of Mieminger Kette trail #812 / #23 is the only (easy) way to get to Coburger hut. Trailhead is the parking lot at hut Arzkasten (1151m / 3776ft). The trail leads north towards Grünsteinscharte (2272m / 7454ft) between Grünstein (2662m / 7422ft) and Griesspitze (2741m / 8993ft).
