The Olpererhütte is a high-end hut. There are great food, great sleeping places and above all: great views of the reservoir lake and the surrounding mountains. The hut is very populated, as here the Berlin High Trail crosses the long-distance trail Munich-Venice.
Especially beautiful is the suspension bridge just in front of the hut, which is a perfect vantage point.

The hut is a busy hut above the Schlegeisstausee. When the weather is fine, it can be hard to get a seat there.
The hut offers good food as well as sleeping places. So the ideal starting point for multi-day tours.
The ascent is from the reservoir in about 1.5 hours, rewarded with a magnificent panorama of the glaciers of the Zillertal main ridge. If the weather is good, you can look down to the border hut to South Tyrol if you are descending the Neumarkter Runde.
An absolute photo highlight is the bridge above the hut.

A real highlight. The hut is recently renovated and offers a great range of food and drinks. Above all, it offers an incredible view of the Schlegeisspeicher. Right next to the hut there is the photo spot with the suspension bridge and the reservoir in the background. For the hike there you should be sure-footed and in good physical condition. The hut itself is also the starting point for climbing the Olper.
