In the Wilder Kaiser region, there are lots of mountain huts and Alpine inns inviting you to enjoy a Tyrolean “Brettljause” snack.
For some, the huts are a welcome destination at the end of a hike, where one can enjoy the traditional “Gemütlichkeit” cosiness and the reward of a delicious meal. For others they are simply lovely places with fascinating natural scenery.
Some of the most beautiful huts are the rustic Neualm by the mid-station in Scheffau, the Rübezahl-Alm in Ellmau, and of course also the Silleralm.
“You must take the opportunity of tasting a good schnapps at the Silleralm with the herdswoman Lotte.”
The most successful German series to date, “Der Bergdoktor” has been filmed in the Wilder Kaiser region since 2007. You can visit the most beautiful filming locations used in the series yourself.

Meet the main actor Hans Sigl and his colleagues personally at one of the Bergdoktor fan weeks.
