The Lorea hut is named after the Loreakopf Peak; its so-called “local” mountain. You will not find a caretaker or landlord at the Lorea Hut; for it is a self catering mountain refuge hut, accessible only from June to the end of September with the aid of a key from the Alpine Association. Once there, you will find 20 mattresses in dormitory style accommodation, a kitchen, communal room and laundry room. Food, however, is not offered and visitors will have to be satisfied with the provisions they have brought themselves. The surrounding landscapes are powerful: the Lorea Hut, also known as the Otto-Reinhardt-Hut, is located on a long grassy ridge above the Loreaalm and offers splendid views of the surrounding mountains.
Well known surrounding mountains: Loreakopf, Eastern Kreuzjoch, Roter Stein.
Ascent to the Lorea Hut
From the „Alten Römerstraße” (Old Roman Road), around 500 metres behind Fernsteinsee Castle, south-west of the Fern Pass (ca. 3 hours).
