Geraer Hütte

The Geraer Hütte (2,324 metres) at the end of the Valsertal Valley is a good base for walks and hikes in the area around the Main Tux Ridge in the Zillertal Alps.

Important stop on the Peter Habeler Route
German Alpine Club, Landshut Division

Craggy peaks giving way to lush meadows provide an impressive backdrop to the Geraer Hütte, a mountain refuge at the end of the Valsertal Valley. This hut is a popular starting point for walks and hikes in the rugged glacier terrain of the Main Tux Ridge. Some of the most famous mountains here are the mighty Olperer, Schrammacher and Fußstein, all of which can be reached on foot. The hut itself serves good food and offers a warm welcome. Another interesting place to visit is the Molybdänbergwerk, a former mining area just a short walk from the hut. The Geraer Hütte is open from mid-June until the end of September. It is accessible from the Schmirntal, Valsertal and Zillertal Valleys on foot.
