Kellerjochhütte

The Kellerjochhütte (2,237 metres) is a popular mountain hut belonging to the Austrian Alpine Club at the Kellerjoch peak in the Tux Alps, Tirol.

Popular mountain hut with 360-degree views
Austrian Alpine Club, Schwaz Division

Schwaz’s local mountain, the Kellerjoch, is nestled between the peaks of Kreuzjoch and Arbeserkogel. The Kellerjochhütte hut stands on a natural observation platform where visitors can enjoy 360-degree views, high above the Inn Valley. On a clear day you can see the Kitzbühel, Zillertal and Stubai Alps as well as the Karwendel Mountains; even the Großvenediger is visible. The hut itself is welcoming and a popular meeting place. People often sing and make music in the two dining lounges. Water for the Kellerjochhütte is provided by a hydraulic ram – which is not a water-spewing male mountain sheep, but instead a water-powered pump. A trail partially secured with steel cable leads from the Kellerjochhütte to the Kreuzjoch, where there is a mountain chapel. The walk there takes 15-20 minutes.

How to get to the Kellerjochhütte
