Summer holidays on the Schmittenhöhe mountain in Zell am See
Alpine holiday in the Pinzgau region
The Pinzgauer Hütte is open for you from the beginning of June to the end of September.
Holidays in summer with a hike and a stop at the Pinzgauer Hütte, a long weekend or even a longer holiday in the Pinzgauer Hütte on the Schmittenhöhe make the Almidyll tangible! Relaxation, tranquility and meditative hiking will make you forget your everyday life.
You can reach our mountain hut on a hike or by bike or e-mountain bike. Most of the well-developed hiking trails on the Schmittenhöhe can be used by e-bike. And while you let us spoil you with culinary delights in our cozy mountain restaurant, you can charge your e-bike at our in-house e-bike charging station (Bosch).
You can also join the well-known “Pinzgauer Walk” (high-altitude hiking trail) at our mountain hut.
How to get there:
In summer, there are numerous ways to reach the Pinzgauer Hütte.
The fastest of these is with the Schmittenbahn mountain lift, located in the middle of Zell am See, to approximately 2000 metres above sea level, with a subsequent approximately 45-minute hike to our lodge. In good weather and in good visibility, our lodge can already be seen from the mountain station.
However, you can also reach us from Piesendorf via the hiking path 1A in approx. 2.5 h. There are parking possibilities next to the Piesendorfer church.
It is also possible to travel up in summer with the AreitXpress 1 mountain lift in Schüttdorf. At the mountain station, you can then continue to the Breiteckalm (alpine restaurant) and over the Paffenkendlsteig (ascent) directly to the Pinzgauer Hütte lodge. The hike takes approximately 2h.
