Alpine pastures & huts
From rustic to top modern refreshment stops
There is no hurry on the sun terraces and parlor benches of Ötztal's pasture inns and mountain huts. But the real Alpine feeling spreads out while the hut tenants offer fresh, regional delicacies. Incidentally, it's no rumor that bacon dumplings, Kaiserschmarrn & more taste even better on the mountain. Just try it for yourselves - some Alpine inns, snack stations and mountain restaurants are easily reachable by cart road or mountain lifts while other huts and Alpine pastures can be conquered only in the classic way by using your legs.
The following list contains all refreshment stops on Ötztal's mountains - with filter function for a quick search of your favorite destination.

The Siegerland Hütte
The hut is high above the Windachtal in the Stubaier Alps on 2.710 metres and not far from the border to South Tyrol. It also has his own climbing garden.
The hut was built in 1928/29 and opened in 1930. The owner is the DAV, section Siegerland.
Every year the section renovates and renews the hut, which is very neat. The Siegerland Refuge is of course not the oldest hut and not the most comfortable one, but we are sure, it is one of the most beautiful huts in the Stubaier Alps.
The hut extinguish with it’s simplicity- but please believe- the "Kaiserschmarrn" never tasted better than up in the mountains.
The hut has 23 beds and 26 dorm mattresses.
