The managed hut is located on the well-known Pfälzer Waldpfad long-distance hiking trail and on the Merzalber circular hiking trail and is the ideal starting point for hikes to the sights in the vicinity such as the Gräfenstein Castle above, the Winschertfelsen or the Rotenstein natural monument.
It has 100 seats indoors and 60 outdoors, is barrier-free (wheelchair-accessible entrance and disabled toilet) and is also ideal for families with children (changing table, play area, playground). Free parking spaces are available on site in sufficient numbers.
