looking at the tags maybe
historic=wilderness_hut would be better (according to a proposal and
the current wiki state, tourism=alpine_hut is for places where you can
get food and accomodation, while tourism=wilderness_hut is for places
that offer less comfort and are not usually managed, i.e. you bring
what you need).

you could also add building=hut if you are adding the object as an
area and you could have a look at the shelter_type tags if the hut can
provide shelter:
