Pleasant accommodation for mountain climbers at the end of the Sulztal Valley
German Alpine Club Hut, Section Amberg
Stubai or the Ötztal Alps? Both! The Amberger Hut may be located in the Stubai Alps, but the main ascent leading to it begins in the Ötztal Valley. To be precise, from the somewhat hidden tributary valley of Sulztal; which is why the Amberger Hut is never overrun with guests. Originally built in 1888, it then bordered on the edge of the Sulztal Glacier. At that time the glacier was enormous and the hut very small in comparison, with only eight beds. After several alterations it now provides comfortable accommodation for mountain climbers, but has retained all of its original charm and mountain hut ambience with its wood panelled rooms.
Well known surrounding mountains: Kuhscheibe, Windacher Daunkogel, Schrankogel.
Ascent to the Amberger Hut
From Gries in Sulztal (municipality of Längenfeld) on an easy track into the Sulztal Valley. Allow ca. 2 to 2.5 hours for the walk.
