A fine alpine hut at 2866m, deep in the Gurgler Valley. Very hospitable, and excellent food!
From Obergurgl, Austria, you can hike to the hut and back in a long day via the Langtalereck Hütte (2430m). You can make it a bit more interesting and visit a third hut by returning via the Ramolhaus (3006m), but that makes for a very long day.
The hut is named after the Hochwilde and it's perfectly located for the northern ascent. We traversed the Hochwilde this day, starting on the Italian side.
