Latschenhütte: the alpine pasture bar, Austria
There’s a lively hustle and bustle in Vienna’s shopping district MaHü, by contrast up on the Teichalm alpine pasture in Fladnitz all excitement can be found both inside and outside the mountain pine hut LaHü. If you count the customers per square meter, the Latschenhütte, this neo-alpine entertainment spot in the heart of Styria, can easily keep up with the Mariahilferstraße, the busiest shopping street in Austria’s capital city.
If you make your way up to the Teichalm alpine pasture, you’re certainly not one of those looking for peace and quiet. Instead you’ll find fun and action galore, almost more than you bargained for. Every Tuesday during the summer months when the DJ cranks up the turntable in the mountain pine hut disco, the place is jumping with more than 1,000 young guests. Not just when the weather is fine, there’s always something going on at the watering hole with its reclaimed wood beams and the subdued Monte Rosa wall panels made of Mareiner pine. It’s an ongoing endurance test for the staff and the material, and the latter doesn’t seem to be to be fazed by all the hustle and bustle in the least.
