In the 1930s, three buildings were built on the Marchkinkele as part of the Vallo Alpino del Littorio to give shelter to border guards. At the same time, the military road was created. The brothers Albin and Andreas Innerhofer bought the three barrack buildings below the Marchkinkele peak at 2,545 meters from the Province of Bozen a few years ago and - since there is no accommodation in the vicinity - started building a shelter for the numerous hikers and mountain bikers. Now, since the beginning of summer 2021, a new refuge with a dining room, traditional cuisine and sleeping quarters has been available to guests.
The following accommodation options are available to our guests:
- A quadruple room with its own shower and toilet
- A five-bed room with its own shower and toilet
- A five-bed room and a three-bed room with shared shower and toilet
- Two triple rooms with shared shower and toilet
- A six-bed dorm with its own shower and toilet
- A hut camp with 10 beds
The Marchkinkele is a popular destination for hikers and ski tourers, as well as mountain and e-bikers in the upper Pustertal and Villgratental.
It is integrated into the Herz-Ass hiking tours of the Villgratental and the Toblacher Höhenweg. In addition, a stage of the "Hoch und Heilig" pilgrimage route leads over the Marchkinklele. From the pilgrimage church in Kalkstein, the hike to the Marchhütte is a beautiful day trip.
