Best Hikes to Gruttenhütte
  • JR on Tour

    Beautiful mountain hut. Ideally located above the valley. From here you have a wonderful view of the sunrise, the Großglockner and Großvenediger. The food is delicious!

  • Base for climbing the Ellmauer Halt via the Gamsängersteig or for the transition to the Scharlinger Boden via the Rote Rinnscharte. If there is enough snow, you can also climb directly to the Rote Rinnscharte (bypassing the Gamsängersteig).

  • With a good basic condition, the hike is easy to manage. In any case, the magnificent view rewarded, and the proximity to Ellmauer Tor for the drops of sweat. Of the Gruttenhütte itself I can unfortunately not give a judgment, as it is currently being renovated. But a small snack on one of the outdoor benches with a gigantic view is more than appealing. However, if you are offensive, you should have your eyes everywhere, because the mountain jackdaws are right there.

  • There are two ways starting from the Wochenbrunnalm, the direct in 1,5 hours, I think one should have a good basic condition here and be firm and the second way over the stone circle, ie the entrance at the end of the parking lot. If you do not know exactly which route then ask.
    A beautiful track with very impressive pictures that I will carry in me for a long time .....

    There was no silence, but great views of the Tauern and the villages of the "Wilden Kaiser" region.

  • The via ferrata consists of two sections. The first section has difficulty B. Then there is a descent.
    A two-rope bridge leads to the second section. The second section has the difficulty D.
