    A must on the E5. The glacier is almost at your feet. Great sight!

    Large hut with cozy camps, sovereign staff, delicious food and a magnificent view of the vastness and the glaciers. Breakfast is available from 6:00 👍. Ascent via the waterfall path is recommended.

    A classic cabin of the E5. But you can also stay very well in the glacier chalet. From there 3 ways lead up to the hut. The trade route, wide and passable. The waterfall path, slowly rising, always next to the water and then at the end steep.
    And the Jägersteig. On a narrow path steeply upwards. I can recommend to make the backpack with the material web upwards and then to take the Jägersteig. A really nice climb.

    Very cozy cottage in incredible location. I can not recommend the backpack at the bottom of the material web. The weather in the Alps can always change quickly and then you may need an extra layer of clothing or gloves or a hat or anything. Water and bandages should always be there.

    A very nice and rustic hut. Whether as E5 hiker / overnight guest or as a traveler on day trip. Each guest is warmly and well looked after. Great food. Great view of the surrounding mountains.
    Also our dogs were immediately supplied with water ... CLASS :-)

    The glacier is the force and the food in the hut! Tip: order Kaiserschmarrn!

    Nice hut as a starting point for high tours on the Left Fernerkogel or even on the Wildspitze.
    Cozy rooms and delicious food help to strengthen you.

    Excellently equipped and organized hut on the E5. In my opinion, the disadvantage is the large size of the hut and the fact that its location makes it very popular and therefore full. If you are looking for a quiet overnight stay on a smaller scale, you should take a different route. On the other hand, the ascent via the Jägersteig or at the waterfall is a stunner, as is the view from the hut over the Pitztal and the glacier landscape. Whereby the glaciers look quite heavily chipped and you can be a direct witness of the increasing effects of climate change.

    The cozy Braunschweiger Hütte is the longed-for day destination for us after a demanding ascent.
