    Base for climbing the Ellmauer Halt over the Gamsängersteig or for the transition to the Scharlinger soils over the Rote Rinnscharte. With sufficient snow coverage, you can also climb directly to the Red Rinnscharte (bypassing the Gamsängersteiges).

    Very nice hike. However, we were a bit disappointed with the offer of the hut.

    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.

    In the summer a scorching climb, so get up early.

    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 .....

    August 2017: Extensive construction of the hut.

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

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