After an unusual season that was strongly affected by the corona pandemic, winter hibernation is now beginning for the bad kissingen mountain hut in the tannheim mountains. Under the leadership of hut warden erich lehenbauer, some section members went to the hut in wintry conditions to help with the work at the end of the season and to thank the hut warden sabine wirth and her team for the work they had done in sometimes difficult conditions.
Erich lehenbauer pointed out that the hut had received nothing but praise during the open hut test of the alpine association. Highlighted were the rough friendliness of the staff, the good price/performance ratio, the good service and the cleanliness of the hat, which was especially important this year. Not a single infection has been detected in connection with the hut.
Then it went to the work, which is absolutely necessary, so that the hat survives the winter well. This ranged from keeping the shutters secure, to emptying the water pipes, to covering the light wells and removing the water pumps. Finally, the workshop was cleaned out and repainted, and the winter room was prepared. However, because of corona, it is available only in extreme emergencies. A sign indicates that the winter area may not be used for tourist purposes this winter.
Of course, socializing was not neglected either. Over a good glass of red wine, the experiences of the past, not easy season were discussed and toasted to a good success in the next year. Now they all hope and wish that the 2021 season will run normally and that the hut will again be able to offer accommodation and catering for mountain enthusiasts at the beginning of may 2021.
