Cosy hut for hikers and skiers above the Gleirschtal Valley
German Alpine Club, Pforzheim Division
Lush valleys, craggy mountains and patches of snow well into summer make the landscape around the Pforzheimer Hütte a spectacular backdrop at the end of the Gleirschtal Valley. This cosy hut in the Stubai Alps welcomes hikers and mountaineers in summer, while in winter it is a popular stop for skiers and snowboarders. In summer it gives easy access to three valleys: Ötztal, Sellraintal and Stubaital. The food is hearty and made using regional produce. The hut sleeps up to 60 guests.
