  • Sebastian Kowalke

    The Similaun hut is located at 3,019 meters above sea level on the Niederjoch and thus directly on the border between Austria and Italy. The hut is surrounded by the breathtaking glacier world of the Ötztaler Alps and if you have not yet experienced sunrise in the mountains, then this hut is the right place for it.

    Beautiful well-kept cottage with very good kitchen because Dormitory pretty narrow recommends early booking room

    The cottage is easy to reach by vent! Good hospitality! Prices for this height appropriate.

    A good kitchen, new toilet and washes and nice staff. The bed storage is according to the circumstances good and clean! Perfect starting point for the Similaun summit ascent!

    Breakfast is available from 6:00. From here you can visit the Ötzi site or take a glacier hike on the Similaun (with mountain guides).

    Hut is totally overcrowded!
    We have moved from frustration of Vent comment to Vernagt reservoir.

    For me it was a flop! Maybe I got the wrong day, ... Strudel did not taste, bacon bread either. For the way of Vent and back again?
