Tips

  • Sebastian Kowalke

    The Rastkogelhütte in the Zillertal Alps is a hut of the German Alpine Club. From Hochfügen you can reach it on a simple mountain hike. Day hikers come here to enjoy the tasty meals. For ambitious summiteers, it continues from here to numerous peaks of the Zillertal Alps. In the first place of course is the eponymous Rastkogel, but also the Roßkopf, the Kleine Gilfert and the Marchkopf are popular summit destinations.

    The hut is open in winter from early December to Easter, and in summer from early June to late October.

  • The Rastkogelhütte offers very tasty food and the hosts are very friendly. A rustic stop on the way.

  • Anyone who crosses the Alps from Gmünd to Sterzing does not have the Kreuzjoch in their route. For athletes, this detour from the Rastkogelhütte is highly recommended. A tightrope walk over the mountain leads to the normal route over the Rauhenkopf. Later, a fellow hiker spoke of a "black slope". So please better only in dry weather and with appropriate surefootedness and experience.

  • 1970s hostel style washrooms and bedrooms. Very noisy walls. The bathrooms are neglected and not really clean, just a shower for all overnight guests. Food was good, a nice view from the terrace.
