Acting on the initiative of Johann Stüdl, three determined young men built a large mountain refuge hut at the foot of His Majesty, the Grossglockner, in 1887: Veit Oberlohr, Paul Schnell and Thomas Huter. They all came from the Kalser district of Glor, from which the hut derives its name. It was briefly in the possession of Section „Donauland“, after which it was passed on to Section Eichstätt. Its location at Berger Törl, surrounded by mountain meadows, pine trees and magnificent mountains, could not be more beautiful. Nestled next to the Wiener Höhenweg (Viennese High Trail), it serves as an important base for many tours in the Glockner- and Schober Mountains and is at the heart of the interesting “Geomorphologic Nature Trail“. A brochure containing more information is available from Kals Tourist Information offices or the National Park information point.

Well known surrounding mountains: Grossglockner, Glocknerblick, Medlspitze, Böses Weibl.

Ascent to the Glorer Hut

A trail leads from Lucknerhaus, which is accessible from Kals am Grossglockner via a toll road, to the hut (takes ca. 2 hours).
