A wilderness hut is an un-serviced remote building with fireplace intended to provide shelter and sleeping accommodation.
Required properties :
- Remote building found in the countryside
- The access is usually restricted to foot, mountain bike or ski.
- Free rent, open to the public, but may require overnight fee in some country (for huts for rent use tourism=chalet instead)
- No permanent human presence, no staff
- You will find suitable sleeping places
- Fireplace or stove for cooking and heating
- Fully closed (roof and walls)
Typically made of stone or wood. May need for keys to enter, owner access through restricted tracks might still be possible, also access by cablelift or helicopter.
- building:condition=* is disputed as of verifiability (too subjective),
but roof:condition=* impermeable/permeable or windows:type=* glass/shutter
should be verifiable enough (*:type=* is a common expression, while windows=* is currently used for the number of windows).
- access=* useful values are access=yes and access=private. NOTE. This tag should not be confused with the status of the operator (e.g., DAV/CAF/SAC owned vs. privately owned. Private would indicate that the hut is only open to members or associates of the owning organisation (this is the typical status for mountain huts in the UK, see discussion).
- operator=* typically used to indicate huts owned or maintained by a specific organisation. E.g. Mountain Bothy Association, Österreichischer Alpenverein, administration of forest or national parks.
