Popular and acclaimed mountain-tour hut
Austrian Alpine Association, Section Hall in Tirol
The Glungezer Hut is the highest Alpine Association ski touring hut in Tirol. The peak is accessible in around an hour in winter using the Glungezer lifts. However, this magnificent mountain dwelling designed by renowned architect, Theo Prachensky, is also a much visited destination in summer. Nestled on the ridge between the Glungezergipfel and Sonnenspitze Peaks, it offers an incredible mountain panorama of around 500 summits, crests and peaks. The hut itself is in great condition and has been awarded with some coveted “Alpine Oscars”, the “Tirolean Mountain Trail Seal of Quality” and “Culinary Creations of the Highest Level”. Because mountain climbers often like to eat healthily, vegetarian and vegan cuisine is also offered. Due to the great choice offered and appropriate equipment available, the Glungezer hut is often used for alpine courses.
