The Gletscherblick hut
- 1850 m above sea level -
The Gletscherblick hut is a friendly destination for hikers at the foot of the Plattenkogel peak and a great option for enjoying the alpine nature of Krimml Waterfall village.
The hut offers wonderful panoramic views of the Durlaßboden Lake, of Königsleiten, the romantic Wildgerlos Valley and the glaciers of the Reichenspitz mountain range.
The owner of the Gletscherblick hut, the Lerch family, offers engaging, agricultural dairy products. There is nothing better than tasting their fine cheese!
The Gletscherblick hut is easy to reach. The family friendly tour starts at Silberleiten (Hochkrimml/ Gerlosplatte). Follow the trail in serpentines that lead up to the Gletscherblick hut (difference in altitude of approx. 200 metres).
Walking distance approx. 45 minutes.
After a hearty snack in the Gletscherblick hut you can continue the hike.
Follow the trail over the alpine pastures of Hinterplatte to Breitscharte. From there we come to Leitenkamersteig, a small path surrounded by rocks and alpine pines, which leads you to the Wildkaralm pastures and down to the Finkau alpine inn.
