The hut is located in the Hochkönig area near to Grandlspitz, Taghaube, Hochseiler and Hochkönig.
From the hut you have a spectacular view to Hochseiler, Grandlspitz, Taghaube in the North, and Ankogel group in the South. In the Southwest you can see Glockner group with Großglockner and Grosses Wiesbachhorn as striking mountains. A bit more in the East you can see Großvenediger.

The hut opens in the middle of May, so it is one of the earliest open huts in the complete area. This season runs the whole summer till October.

There are some good things to eat - very recommendable is the Palatschinken (Austrian confection of pastry).

The hut has an easy access and can also be visited by suboptimal hikers.
