Tirol planned a mountaineering Tour.
February 12, 2018
The Ramolhaus is not only the oldest refuge in the Ötztal, but also one of the highest situated huts in Tyrol. Theoretically, one could still greet each other there with "Moin, Moin!" Instead of "Griass di!", Because the rustic hut is run by the Hamburg section of the German Alpine Club.You reach the Ramolhaus of Obergurgel at the southernmost end of the Ötztal on a four-hour tour. You first cross the Gurgler Ache and then take trail 37, which leads here together with the long distance hiking trail 902 up to the Ramolhaus.As you ascend through the rear Gurglertal, the landscape becomes increasingly barren, and soon you will reach underneath cliffs and over rubble up to the destination of your hike.Arrived at the Ramolhaus a great view awaits you on the surrounding peaks. If you start early enough, the tour is also suitable as a day hike. But many hikers climb to the Ramolhaus to use the hut as a starting point for further summit ascents. Finally, around the refuge you will find numerous magnificent peaks, where you can enjoy spectacular views of the Ötztal glacier world. The most popular tours lead you further on the Ramolkogel, the rear Spiegelkogel, up on the Firmisiascheide or on the Schalfkogel.
