Dusseldorfer Hut
Düsseldorferhütte & Ortler (in the clouds)
The Düsseldorferhütte (also Rifugio Serristori) is a nice mountain hut situated beautifully between many 3000 meter peaks. The Düsseldorferhütte is the Hut with the probably the biggest variety of 3000 meter peaks to be climbed. Within reach are Vertainspitze / Cima Vertana (3545m), Hoher Angelus / Angelo Grande (3521m), Tschenglser Hochwand (3378m), Hinteres Schöneck (3128m) and Kleiner Angelus (3318m). Because of the relatively high elevation of the Hut at over 2700 meters, the altitude difference with the surtrounding mountains is not too big. Combined with the variety of tours possible from this Hut as well as the great views, this Hut is a popular objective for hikers as well as climbers.
The Düsseldorferhütte offers fantastic views towards the Ortler Group. The ''dreigestirn'' Gran Zebru / Koenigspitze (3851m), Monte Zebru (3731m) and Ortler itself (3905m) can be seen perfectly.

The Hut was built back in 1892 by the Düsseldorfer DAV section.After the first World war the Hut came in the hands of the CAI, The italian Alpine club and since 2010 the Hut is owned by the Province of South Tyrol. The Hut is guarded by already the fifth generation of the Reinstadler Family. The Hut offers 50 sleeping places and is opened between June and Oktober.
