The Steinseehütte (2,061 metres) is a mountain refuge ideal for climbers, hikers and daytrippers surrounded by the Parzinn Mountains in the Lechtal Alps, Tirol.
Comfortable accommodation in a rocky and high mountain landscape
Austrian Alpine Club, Landeck Division
As the name of the hut suggests, a lake is nearby: the Steinsee is about a twenty-minute walk away and 160 vertical metres above the hut. It is a beautiful mountain lake with many stones and rocks. And impressive ones at that, as the mountains of Lechtal Valley are both high and imposing, including the surrounding Parzinn Mountains. The hut itself is located in the middle of a small grassy slope and invites all visitors who appreciate good and freshly cooked food as well as comfortable accommodation. Visitors feel immediately at home in the two dining lounges. The area around the hut is the ideal venue for climbing courses as well as being very suitable for children. The hut is located on both the Eagle Walk and the Lech Valley High Trail.
