Ramolhaus (3,006 metres above sea level) is a small German Alpine Club mountain refuge hut close to the Gurgler Glacier in the Ötztal Alps, Tirol.

Hamburg‘s highest dwelling
German Alpine Club Hut, Section Hamburg and Niederelbe

Hamburg‘s highest dwelling is in the Ötztal Valley. To be precise, in the upper Gurgler Valley, close to the Gurgler Glacier. Built in 1881, it is steeped in tradition. It has been expanded and renovated many times since and although it is now equipped with contemporary amenities, the rustic mountain lodge ambience remains. It also has a little chapel. And because heavenly gifts are particularly appreciated here and great emphasis is placed on serving high quality food, the proprietors have joined the „So schmecken die Berge“(That’s what mountains taste like) campaign. The daily supply of fresh produce is delivered by a modern freight cable car, which can also be used to transport hiker’s backpacks when required. Contact the hut proprietor to take advantage of this service.

Well known surrounding mountains: Ramolkogel, Firmisanschneide, Schalfkogel, Hinterer Spiegelkogel.
