Pitztal Hiking Paradise

Huts and Alpine Huts

Your accommodation along the E5 European Long-Distance Hiking Trail

The huts and alpine huts in the Pitztal convince with their combination of authenticity and convenience. After a beautiful hike a break stop is a must – enjoy fantastic Tyrolean delights, good talks with original hosts and a schnapps to go with it, a unique experience!

Our tip: the Braunschweiger Hütte

The Braunschweiger Hütte at an altitude of 2,759m is the highest-located accommodation along the E5 European Long-Distance Hiking Trail. From the Mittelberg to the hut an altitude gain of 996 metres must be conquered. The hut is perfect for staying overnight and it features a homey tiled stove, a guest parlour, a terrace offering a panoramic view, showers on the floors and dormitories.  Let yourself be spoilt on the hut’s terrace …
