Located at 1,934m, the Muttekopfhütte is the highest-located hut in the Hoch-Imst hiking area. It is open in the summer only and can only be reached on foot. In addition to long-distance hikers and rock climbing fans, the hut of the Imst-Oberland Alpine Club section also attracts families and bon vivants.
The reasons are obvious:
- the cosy ambiance,
- the sun terrace and
- the hospitality
Culinary-wise, the “Mutte” team is also impressive with some Tyrolean specialities and a fine selection of wines. It might get a little late though: after all, up to 60 persons can spend the night there in comfortable rooms and dormitories.

Location & Getting There
En route along the Lechtal high-altitude trail, the Eagle Walk or the E4 long-distance hiking trail, the Muttekopfhütte is perfect for a rest stop or spending a night. From the valley you can get there by taking the new gondola lift and continue by foot:
- Without lift, you start from the Imst hamlet of Rastbühel and follow the forestry road past the Obermarkter Alm and Latschenhütte. • 2.5 hours
- From the Untermarkter Alm mid-station past the Latschenhütte (suitable for children!) • 1.5 hours
- From the Alpjoch mountain station along the Drischlsteig (well-secured rock hiking trails, requires a good head for heights and sure-footedness!) • 40 minutes
If you love dumplings, you should try the cheesy version or the “3 Guaten”, where three different seasonal dumplings are served.
The famous “Schlipfkrapfen” are a specialty from the Eastern Tyrol: home-made pasta stuffed with a potato-garlic-herb-filling.
If you want to enjoy a regional specialty, we recommend trying the “Beuschel” (ragout of innards”) with bread dumplings.
Enjoy your meal!
