John Sholto Douglass was an important Alpinist actively involved in the Austrian Alpine Club, leading to the building of a shelter hut on Luenersee, named the Douglas Hut.

The Douglass Hut is located directly next to the mountain station of the Lünerseebahn at a height of 1,979 m above sea-level, by the Luenersee in the Rätikon in Vorarlberg.

Enjoying the surrounding mountain landscape from the sunny lakeside terrace by the turquoise-blue "jewel" of the Rätikon - at El Dorado for mountain climbers, hikers and anglers - is fascinating for all nature lovers. The lodge stands on the natural rock plate Which borders the basin of the lake. What used to be the biggest natural mountain lake in the Eastern Alps which dammed up in 1960, raising the level of the lake.

Our lodge service will spoil you all day with specialties of traditional Austrian cuisine, coffee and cake and ice cream dishes various.

Overnight Accommodation: 50 in bunk rooms, 100 in mattress rows
