The mountain hut Dresdner Hütte, located at an altitude of 2,300 meters above sea level, is one of the iconic places of the Stubai Alps. It is an incredible crossroads of long-distance hiking trails. Right next to it is also the first intermediate station of the cable car leading up to the TOP of Tyrol, so there is no shortage of visitors here. You can go on a number of hikes or just a short walk to a wild waterfall right from the cottage.

View of the Dresdner Hütte

The Dresdner Hütte is located only 150 meters from the first intermediate station of the cable car below the Egesengrat peak (2631 m), where you can go by the normal route or by the secured route. This is the first option to go from the cottage. After normal, it is about 1.5 kilometers and 300 meters of elevation gain.

Three streams near the cottage

Three streams flowing from the glacier flow by the cottage. The most eastern is the one that flows from the Fernauferner glacier. Here on the slope you can see that the glacier disappeared here relatively recently. The Schaufelspitze (3332 m) rises on the horizon, which is an easy target thanks to the nearby cable car.

The road to the Bödele Hütte

From the confluence of the streams, directly under the cable car, you can see another possible walk – along the road to the Bödele Hütte (1.3 km and 300 meters of elevation gain) and on to the beautiful lake Beschneiungung speicher (2 km).

Walk to the waterfall

The shortest walk from the Dresdner Hütte is along the footpath to a small but really wild waterfall

Under a predatory waterfall

The waterfall is only a few hundred meters from the cottage, and since there is no marked route, hardly anyone comes here

View back to the cottage

You can see from the waterfall that the cottage is not really far.
