    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 can be reached in about 1 1/2 hours and offers a fantastic view over the Schlegeisspeicher and the highest Zillertal ice giants Gr.Möseler 3480m and Hochfeiler 3510m

    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.

    Although we had bad luck with the weather during the ascent and therefore not the best panoramic view. Nevertheless, the new-modern hut with warm shower (even 4 minutes warm water per shower brand!) And the picture window was an absolute highlight.

    the hut is run by the DAV, and offers not only the magnificent view but also an incredibly good Tyrolean cuisine, prepared from local ingredients. a real highlight!
