The Gaudeamus Hut (1,270 metres above sea level) is a popular mountain refuge hut and day trip destination just above the Wochenbrunner Alm in the Kaiser Mountains, Tirol.

Popular meeting place on the south side of the Wilden Kaiser

Station along the Eagle Walk

Although the Gaudeamus Hut is surrounded by the imposing Wilder Kaiser Mountain Range, it stands alone on an inviting alpine meadow at the foot of the Törlspitzen, above the Wochenbrunner Alm. Close to many hiking and mountain trails, the Gaudeamus Hut is well frequented by day trippers, especially in nice weather. They meet on the sun terrace to savour Tirolean specialities and exchange opinions on hiking and mountaineering tours as well as climbing routes. This charming hut is accessible via a toll road, making it a popular starting point for various summit climbs and crossings of the Wilden Kaiser Mountains. The menu may be small, but the food is delicious. Mountain climbers certainly don’t need to worry about their calorie intake, and homemade cakes are always available.

Well known surrounding mountains: Goinger Halt, Karlspitzen, Regalmspitze, Ackerlspitze, Maukspitze, Ellmauer Halt.

Ascent to the Gaudeamushütte

From the Wochenbrunner Alm (40 minutes), or from Scheffau, Ellmau or Going-Prama (takes 2 hours each).
