Sicherung für den Küchenraum ist immer rausgesprungen, sobald wir die Herdplatte angeschaltet haben. Durften allerdings unkompliziert in einem anderen Häuschen die Küche nutzen. Aber generell konnten in unserem Haus nur wenige elektronischen Geräte angeschlossen werden, bevor die Sicherungen rausgeflogen sind.

Leider kein WLAN in Zimmer und Küche von Hütte (nur in Rezeption Haus, ca 5 min weg). Romantische kleine Hütte. Sporadische Küche
