Summer Opening from 26th May.

Along the Drischlsteig path you can get from the mountain station of the Imster Bergbahnen to the Muttekopfhütte in about 40 minutes in the summer. The area of the same name is a popular excursion destination for hikers, mountaineers and rock climbers.

Die Muttekopfhütte in Imst in Tirol im Sommer

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 by 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

Culinary offer

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!
