The oldest mountain hut in the ötztal valley

Unforgettable glacier views high above Obergurgl

Back in 1881, before he opened the Hotel Edelweiss in Obergurgl, the great grandfather of today's owner, Martin Scheiber, built the first mountain hut in the Ötztal Valley: the Ramolhaus.

Perched at 3006m on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Gurgler Ferner glacier, the hut is a popular destination for guests staying at our hotel and also draws mountaineers from near and far.

The hut, which is now owned by the German Alpine Club, is still run by Lukas Scheiber, the owner and manager of the Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl.

The hut is open beween late June and mid-September, depending on the weaher conditions. During the warm summer months it is an excellent base for ambitious hikers wanting to explore the highest mountains in the Ötztal Valley, many of which are over 3000m.

As well as its unique location, the Ramolhaus is also famous for its traditional Tyrolean food and stylish interior. Many guests of the Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl make the four-hour hike from Obergurgl up to the hut, either in the company of a mountain guide or on their own. Find out more about our combined packages in summer and book your holiday with us today, including a night at over 3000m in the Ramolhaus hut.

Tip! Let us lighten the load and transport your rucksack up to the hut on the cable car used to supply the Ramolhaus with delicious fresh produce.
