The Langtalereckhütte (2,450 metres) in the Ötztal Alps is an excellent base for walks and hikes, including glacier adventures.

Hut close to the Gurgler Ferner glacier

The Langtalereckhütte is the final stop on the way to the Gurgler Ferner glacier, at the end of the Gurgltal Valley. It is a good base camp for walkers and hikers keen to explore some of the easier-to-climb 3,000m peaks in the area with no glacier crossing needed. The hut is just one of several mountain refuges erected by alpine enthusiasts from Karlsruhe, Germany, since the end of the 19th century. Ambitious hikers and climbers will also find plenty to keep them busy. The hut is a good place for a daytrip from Obergurgl.
