Landscaped alp surrounded by verdant slopes on a wildly romantic, refreshing waterfall. Carries the Austrian award GenussHütte: Mountain cheese, butter, quark, yoghurt and other regional products of the Walser Buura (farmers) are offered here.
The Alp Melköde extends on a plateau in Schwarzwassertal - one of the most beautiful spots in Kleinwalsertal - and is located at an altitude of 1,350 m. Surrounded by green hillsides in a wildly romantic waterfall, offers a breathtaking view of the Hohe Ifen (2230 m), quasi the "home mountain" of the Melköde. The Alpe is fogged with about 30 dairy cows every summer. The milk is made into mountain cheese, butter, quark and yoghurt. In the alpine hut you can enjoy these delicacies as well as many other products of the Walser Buura.

Tolle regionale Brotzeit mit lokalem Käse und Wurst, auch zum Mitnehmen. Wunderbar gelegen mit Spielplatz und wenige Meter vom Wasserfall - für Kinder ein Traum. Kutschfahren von Hammerer machen hier regelmäßig Mittagsrast.
