Gentian Hut Oberstdorf

High-tech for extreme weather conditions

Logo Enzianhütte Oberstdorf Daniel and Ines Schwegler have realised a dream by converting their mountain guesthouse in the Allgäu Alps. What was particularly important to the hostess of the Gentian hut when selecting the terrace material?

But not megawood®. "Despite extreme weather conditions that continued through into May in some instances, our terrace still looks the same as it did shortly after our inauguration celebration." The large megawood® Classic terrace laid in 2012 has proven itself despite a permanent fluctuation between rain and sunshine as well as 35,000 hikers that have stopped at the hut in the meantime. 

The Gentian hut is passed on from generation to generation. The Schwegler Family thinks in large time dimensions.

„Nature is the most valuable commodity that we must protect on behalf of our grandchildren", says Ines Schwegler. Therefore, the fact that no tree was cut down for megawood® particularly pleases her – also because of and, in fact, especially because of the unspoiled nature that her guests can enjoy from her terrace with a clear conscience. 

There is so much more potential in megawood®. The comfortable terrace is only the beginning. 

Once megawood® – forever megawood®? The answer is obvious to Ines Schwegler. "The material is so robust and diverse that I would love to buy megawood® blinds, balcony rails or furniture – immediately if I could!" This is because the constant maintenance and replacement of the pure wood elements at the mountain guesthouse take up a lot of time. Time that she would rather give to her guests that brave the climb to the hut each year. The safety and comfort of the hikers is Ines Schwegler's priority. "There is simply nothing better than a relaxing barefoot feeling following a demanding day of hiking, right?“
