The Siegerlandhütte (2,710 metres) is a mountain hut in the Stubai Alps providing a good base camp for hikers wishing to take on the 3,000-metre peaks at the end of the Windachtal Valley.
Classic mountain hut near the Stubai Valley's highest peaks

The eye-catching stone facade of the Siegerlandhütte marks it out as a solid base in the mountains for walkers, hikers and climbers at the end of the Windachtal Valley. Visitors arriving from the village of Sölden must complete a relatively long approach as they leave the valley behind and head into the highest mountains the Stubai Alps have to offer, including the famous Zuckerhütl and Sonklarspitze. Those wishing to take on these mighty peaks need alpine experience and advanced climbing skills, though the hike to the nearby Scheiblehnkogel is less challenging. The hut itself was built in 1928/1929 and has been extended several times since. The food is delicious and the accommodation is cosy.
