Dine in Historic Alpine Charm at Berlinerhütte - Mayrhofen
Step into the Berlinnerhütte and its storied past, where every corner holds a piece of history and a touch of charm. This beautiful haven in the Zillertal Alps has been around since 1879 and has undergone many transformations within that time. It started off as a modest shelter and has since grown into an impressive multi-floor lodging house.
Berlinnerhütte serves delicious meals in a stylish alpine environment. Warm meals and homemade cakes are available from 11am, while dinner service begins around 18.30. You’ll find a variety of tasty dishes from their à la carte menu to satisfy your cravings.
How To Get There
The starting point for the Berlinerhütte is the Alpengasthaus Breitlahner which is easily accessible by public transport. From here, the mountain hut can be reached in about 3 hours on foot. As you step out onto the well-marked trail, you’ll be treated to scenic views of the Zemmgrund and pass by the donkeys and geese of the Klausnalm.
