Hallerangerhaus

Closed today
Historic base camp for Karwendel tours since 1901. Not far from probably the most beautiful climbing area in the Alps.

Deep in the heart of the Karwendel Alpine Park lies the historic Hallerangerhaus (since 1901) at 1,768 metres above sea level. Nestled in a unique natural landscape, the charming refuge offers a wide variety of hikes and summit tours during the summer months. On the cosy sun terrace, hikers and mountaineers are served all kinds of homemade Tyrolean delicacies and tangy refreshments.

The hut is an ideal base camp for numerous Karwendel tours. Climbers also get their money's worth at Halleranger. As one of the most beautiful climbing areas in the Alps with tours in the area from the 6th degree of difficulty and the "Durchschlag" climbing garden (routes from the 2nd to 7th degree of difficulty), there is certainly something for everyone. Luggage transport to the house is available on request for climbing courses from the Kastenalm.

OVERNIGHT STAY
During the summer months you can also stay overnight at the cosy hut. A total of 76 sleeping places with 52 beds and 24 camps, as well as modern sanitary facilities are available. A seminar room for up to 20 people can be booked on request, as can half-board catering. Please book in advance, which is also possible online.

LOCATION & STARTING POINT
From the Länd car park in Scharnitz, the trail leads through the Hinterautal valley to the Kastenalm and from there on to the Hallerangerhaus. If you arrive by public transport, you can reach the starting point on foot in about 10 minutes. If you want to avoid the long walk to the Kastenalm, you can either do this stage by (e)bike or take one of the Karwendel taxis to the Kastenalm.

SUMMER TOURS

  • Bike & Hike to the Hallerangerhaus. The medium-difficulty but very long hike from the Länd car park in Scharnitz to the Hallerangerhaus is best tackled as a varied Bike & Hike tour. By bike from Scharnitz through the Hinterautal valley, past the Isar spring to the Kastenalm. Continue on foot to the Hallerangerhaus. After a well-deserved refreshment, return to Scharnitz along the same route. This route is the 1st or 6th stage on the legendary Karwendelhöhenhweg.
    To the Bike & Hike Tour
  • Speckkarspitze. Challenging tour to a summit with a great view. From Hallerangerhaus first to the Lafatscherjoch and further over partly exposed terrain to the Speckkarspitze. A head for heights and surefootedness are required for this tour.
    To the hike
  • Adlerweg stage 11: Beautiful but very demanding hike from the Karwendelhaus via the Birkkarspitze to the Hinterautal and from there on to the Hallerangerhaus.
