Hall – Halltal Valley – Hallerangerhaus; all inter-linked, and not only by name. Even though the mountain refuge hut is located in the Scharnitzer area, its history and visitor frequency is more orientated towards Hall. Hallerangerhaus was built in 1901 on Kohlerboden grounds. After being destroyed by an avalanche in 1914, it was rebuilt 500 metres higher in a more sheltered location. In recent years, it has been extensively refurbished and renovated. Hot water is provided by solar energy, of which there is a plentiful supply for showers. For those who prefer natural spring water: the Isar springs nearby. Hallerangerhaus is an essential base for tours of the Karwendel Mountains; the Eagle Walk and „Traumpfad München/Venedig“ (Munich-Venice Dream Trail) both pass the refuge. The „Durchschlag“ rock climbing area nearby is particularly popular with climbing enthusiasts.
Well known surrounding mountains: Sunntigerspitze, Speckkarspitze, Kleiner and Großer Lafatscher, Großer Bettelwurf.
