In the fall, many hikers had gathered for the oktoberfest in the cozy hut, and the traditional advent celebration was also very well attended. Steffi eiter praised and thanked all those who participated in the festive evening. The arboretum around the hut has been kept in good condition by some tireless people all year round.
