The Gruttenhütte is a rustic refuge in the heart of the Wilder Kaiser. It is picturesquely situated at 1620m, on the south side of the Wilder Kaiser with a fantastic view. Cosy evenings in the hut invite you to enjoy the beautiful sun terrace with panoramic views of the magnificent peaks of the local mountains. It is the starting point for various hikes, summit adventures and climbing tours.

The Gruttenhütte was ceremoniously opened in 1900. In 2017, it was completely rebuilt and now has about 105 beds, which are divided into two-bed rooms to eight-bed rooms and mattress dormitories. You can find out the prices for overnight stays directly on the Gruttenhütte homepage, where you can also book your overnight stay right away. There is a ladies' shower and a men's shower for a fee. Dogs are not allowed in the Gruttenhütte and must sleep outside. WLAN is not available.

The refuge is only accessible on foot. The shortest route leads from the car park of the Wochenbrunner Alm (1,085m) to the Gruttenhütte (1,620m) in about 1.5 hours. All information on the various hikes and opening times can be found here.
