Furtschaglhaus

The Furtschlaglhaus (2,295 metres) in the heart of the Zillertal Alps is a mountain hut located on the Berlin High Trail.

Water, ice and mighty rock formations dominate the landscape around the Furtschlaglhaus. This mountain hut above the Schlegeis reservoir is located on the Berlin High Trail and offers fine views of the surrounding mountains, including a number of 3,000m peaks suitable for ice climbing. The hut itself is relatively easy to reach and therefore suitable as a destination for families with children. There are also a number of easy walks near the hut. Ambitious mountaineers can take on the Großer Möseler, the second-highest mountain in the Zillertal Alps, but will require the support of a local mountain guide to do so. The hut serves excellent food in its cosy wood-panelled dining room.
