The fine-looking Dresdner Hut opened in 1875 and was the first refuge hut in the Stubaital Valley. It received neighbours in 1973 when the Stubaier Glacier cable car went into operation. This resulted in a significantly higher number of visitors not only for the glacier, but also for the Dresdner Hut. To date, it has been renovated and extended many times over and it is now an imposing stone building complex offering comfortable accommodation to a large number of guests. Visitors are pampered with delicious meals in the welcoming dining lounges and spacious sun terrace and can look forward to welcoming overnight accommodation. The old “Zollhütte” (customs hut) is only a few minutes’ walk away and is also available to hire.
Well known surrounding mountains: Großer Trögler, Stubaier Wildspitze, Daunkogel, Zuckerhütl, Wilder Pfaff, Wilder Freiger, Schaufelspitze.
