Tips and hintsIn 2001, the former New Chemnitz Hut was renamed Rüsselsheimer Hütte. The important base in the middle part of the Geigenkamm Höhenweg is not only epic because of its location and its wildlife, but also in culinary terms. For example, you can enjoy delicacies from Capricorn here.
Due to the long walking time, the driveway to Breitlehnalm with the hut taxis makes sense. If one walks from Huben on foot, an overnight stay on the Rüsselsheimer hut is to be recommended.
The way back to the starting point can be done by bus via Imst.
Getting thereThe car drive to the Ötztal valley. Situated in Tirol, the Ötztal valley set off in southerly direction and is the
longest side valley in the Eastern Alps. The journey with the car leads you through the Inntal valley to the
entrance of the valley and further on through the valley. Among the toll motorways you can also use the country
roads. A route planner will show you the easiest and most convenient way: https://www.google.at/maps
