The Hintergrathütte is located north-east of the Suldenferner, a large glacier below the Ortler, Zebrù and Königspitze mountains. It can be reached from Sulden, among other places, on a marked hiking trail no. 2 in 2.5 hours. The hut is an important base for climbing the Ortler, especially for the route via the Hintergrat. Within reach of the stars! In our cosy shared rooms and in the bright, spacious camps, mountaineers can recover from strenuous tours and summit strikers can gather strength for the next day. We offer accommodation for a total of 70 people. We are open from mid-June to the beginning of October. Reservations by e-mail are only possible in the winter months from October to May.
