Klausenalm 1301m - Zemmgrund

Description

The hut is located in the beautiful Zemmtal valley at 1301 metres and is owned by the third generation of the Geisler family, Kathrin and Karl - from Gasthaus Schwarzenstein in Ginzling.

The name Klausen Alm comes, as can still be seen today from the notches in the large rocks next to the hut and in the area near the bridge, from logging with dammed water, the so-called "KLAUSEN".

Water was often dammed up by reservoirs, and the KLAUSEN could be quickly drained at the desired time. The wood piled up below the dams was washed down the valley in this way.

Our grandmother Moidl "Maria Geisler" - also long-time landlady of the Alpenrose hut - inherited the Klausenalm from her father Friedrich Eder, which was managed by her husband Johann Geisler and later by our father Alfred Geisler. Due to the early death of our dear father Alfred Geisler, the Klausenalm was leased out in recent decades and used purely for agriculture and forestry.

Our tenants are briefly listed here: Heinrich Kröll, Kumbichel Mayrhofen, from the end of the 1950s to the mid-1960s, then Tasser Josef, Brandberg and, since the 1970s, Franz Rauch from Ramsau. We are particularly grateful to the Rauch family for the good maintenance and management of our alpine pasture over the last four decades.

In 2010 we converted our alpine hut into a cosy snack bar and we now manage and run it ourselves. In addition to the Gasthaus Schwarzenstein, we have thus created a small "special kind" of restaurant for our guests, fulfilling a long-standing dream.
