The Glorer Hütte (2,642 metres) is a German Alpine Club mountain refuge at the foot of the Grossglockner in the Hohe Tauern National Park, East Tirol.
Mountain refuge near the Grossglockner
German Alpine Club, Eichstätt Division
Acting on the initiative of famous mountaineer and pioneer Johann Stüdl, in 1887 three determined young men built a large mountain refuge hut at the foot of the Grossglockner: 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 Donauland Division of the German Alpine Club, after which it was passed on to the Eichstätt Division. Its location at Berger Törl, surrounded by mountain meadows, pine trees and magnificent mountains, could not be more beautiful. Nestled next to the Vienna High Trail, it serves as an important base for many walks, hikes and climbs 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 the Kals Tourist Information offices or the National Park information point.
