Hut? This is actually more like a house. Moreover, it is close to a road; the Hochgebirgsstraße (High Mountain Road) which leads over the Kühtaisattel Ridge, through alpine terrain and fields of alpine roses. It is a beautiful sight when they are in bloom and the slopes are turned into a sea of crimson. Kühtai attracts sporty people all year round, which is why the Dortmunder Hut is open in both summer and winter. Whilst outside, the added altitude bonus boosts the beneficial effects of hiking, walking, mountaineering, skiing, cross country skiing and ski touring, after which the highest comfort factor can be found when on the inside. The Dortmunder Hut is located in a “Kogelgebiet” (area of rounded, wooded mountain tops).
Well known surrounding mountains: Wetterkreuzkogel, Pockkogel, Sulzkogel, Pirchkogel, Gaißkogel, Rietzer Grieskogel.
Ascent to the Dortmunder Hut
Take the road from Innsbruck via Kematen and through the Sellraintal Valley, or from Oetz to Kühtai.
