A beautiful hike down one of Tirol's most beautiful valleys

The Tribulaun Hütte mountain hut in the Gschnitztal is one of the easiest mountain huts to reach in the area.

Leave your car (or take the Post Bus) to the end of the Gschnitztal valley. Just past the car park, the trail up to the Tribulaun hut begins.

The trail starts as a wide gravel road that snakes up through the forest, before emerging above the tree line. 

At a couple of points along the trail, hikers can break off the wider gravel road and take a narrower, more direct route up to the hut, however due to some snow still being on the ground, we chose to stick to the gravel road.

This gravel road leads you to the end of the valley before snaking up the final section to reach the hut. It's wide enough for hikers and mountain bikers too which is awesome! The trail isn't difficult, but you definitely want to have a good fitness level to enjoy it.

The views from the hut are stunning, the atmosphere is welcoming, and the food is filling. Just make sure you bring cash to pay as they don't take card.
