Rich in tradition, cozy and the perfect starting point for mountain hikes in the rear Kaunertal.
The Gepatschhaus is the oldest mountain hut in Austria, located on 1928 metres above sea level.
Because of the ideal location next to the glacier road it is the first choice for mountain and hiking tours.

The alpine hut is the starting point for many hikes, summit- and glacier tours: Weißseespitze, Glockturm, Vordere und Hintere Ölgrubenspitze - popular 3000 m summits which can be climbed directly from the hut. Other attractions are the Klettergarten as well as the Holderli Seppl Klettersteig. Both can be reached by a 15 minutes walk.
