    The hut is located on 1,620 meters on the sunny south side at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser high above Ellmau and offers on the beautiful sun terrace a magnificent view - on clear days even to Goßvenediger. The hut is dominated by the highest peak of the Wilder Kaiser - the Ellmauer Halt with 2,344 meters altitude.

    On beautiful summer days, the much visited hut is a popular destination for hikers and an important base for climbers and climbers, who can start from here to alpine tours and great climbing routes.

    The hut is farmed from Whitsun to mid-October.

    Please note: The hut will be rebuilt in the summer of 2017 and the guest operation will therefore be limited.

    In 2017 still extensive renovation work, only with emergency operation. I will probably have to come again. The ascent of Gaudeamushütte is not for the untrained.

    Great view on 1620m. Completely rebuilt and modernized 2 years ago. Delicious food and very friendly, nice hut staff. Ideal for overnight stays for climbing tours or a Kaiserdurchsteigung / hut tour.
