Accommodation for walkers and hikers at the end of the Sulztal Valley

Stubai or the Ötztal Alps? Both! The Amberger Hütte may be located in the Stubai Alps, but the main ascent leading to it begins in the Ötztal Valley – be precise, from the somewhat hidden tributary valley of Sulztal. This is why the Amberger Hütteis never overrun with guests. Originally built in 1888, it then bordered the edge of the Sulztal Glacier. At that time the glacier was enormous and the hut very small in comparison, with only eight beds for visitors wishing to stay the night. After several alterations it now provides comfortable accommodation for mountain climbers, but has retained all of its original charm and alpine ambience with its wood-panelled rooms. Well-known mountains: Kuhscheibe, Windacher Daunkogel, Schrankogel.
