Schweinfurter Hütte

The Schweinfurter Hütte (2,028 metres) is a mountain hut popular both summer and winter in the Horlachtal Valley in the Stubai Alps, Tirol.

Popular place to stop during hikes, mountain bike and ski tours
German Alpine Club, Schweinfurt Division

The Schweinfurter Hütte in the romantic Horlachtal Valley is located in the Stubai Alps, but on the Ötztal Valley side. Originally a private hunting lodge, it was acquired by the Guben Division of the German Alpine Club in 1918 and converted into a mountain refuge. The hut is now admirably managed by the Schweinfurt Division. It has been expertly renovated and excellently equipped, as well as being a provider of great food. As one would expect, everything is in order from an ecological point of view, a fact proven by the Environmental Seal of Approval award bestowed upon it by the German Alpine Club. It is a popular place to stop during hikes, mountain bike and ski tours. It is also on the "Sellrainer Hufeisen Tour" (Sellrainer Horseshoe Tour). A toboggan run leads from Niederthai down to the hut in winter.
