Situated at the end of the long Trogtal Valley, a side valley which itself is located at the end of the Zillertal Valley, the Greizer Hütte offers fine views of the Floitenkees glacier and the surrounding Zillertal Alps. It lies on the Berlin High Trail and is an important stop on this popular long-distance trek. In the months when it is open to visitors (mid-June until early October) the hut sleeps around 100 guests in a mixture of private rooms and dormitories with matresses next to each other. There is also a separate winter room. Most of the climbing around the hut is for experts only and requires glacier equipment and experience. There is a rock-climbing area near the hut.
