Beautiful view from Risnjak ridge Schlosser's hut below the summit ridge

Schlosser's hut on Risnjak mountain is situated below the southern rock of the highest peak at an altitude of 1.418 mtrs and it is the only accommodation option in the Risnjak National Park (camping not permitted). The hut is situated on a grassy plateau called Schlosser's meadow, and is considered to have one of the most beautiful location in Croatia. Before the lodge was built the meadow was famous for its rich and rare flora. The hut is called, same as meadow, after the physician Dr. Joseph Schlosseru Klekovski (1808.-1882.) - the founder of Croatian botany.

The hut itself is spacious one-floored house. On the ground floor there are two dining rooms, kitchen and hallway - which is used as emergency shelter and it is always open. On the first floor there are several rooms with a total capacity of 49 beds. Water is supplied from a tank, and recently solar panels were installed, so the hut is now provided also with electricity.

The lodge is open all year from 1st May to 1st November, and each visitor has to buy a ticket for entering the Risnjak National Park.

Hiking trips from the hut

Except for the climb to the top of Veliki Risnjak (1.528 mtrs), the hut can also serve as a base for excursions into the area around the massif and to visit the nearby Snježnik (1.505 mtrs).
