Mountain huts and restaurants in the Oetztal Valley
Take a rest, recharge your batteries, relax
A day in the mountains would only be half as enjoyable without them: the mountain huts and restaurants run by the Riml family are a place to stop off and take a break every day in the Oetztal Mountains. Take a seat, enjoy a rest and sample the tasty food and drinks on offer.
Gampe Thaya – the most traditional mountain cabin in the Oetztal
The traditional Gampe Thaya is located high above the town of Soelden and has been carefully and patiently renovated by innkeepers Daniela and Jakob Prantl and transformed into the ideal place for spending a cosy break. Once you take a seat on the terrace, you won't want to leave thanks to the views across the Oetztal Valley, the authentic Tyrolean treats and the tranquillity which radiates from this location and its hosts.
The Sonnblick ski hut is located in the skiing and hiking resort in Hochsoelden and as such is a popular destination for anyone seeking a break. Families and children in particular appreciate the facilities here which include a play area and petting zoo in summer.
Glacier restaurant Rettenbach
The Rettenbach glacier restaurant is located right on the World Cup slope. Here you can re-charge your batteries during a day of skiing with top quality food, despite the fast service. In summer, you can stop off here for a break during a walk or cycling tour.
Glacier restaurant Tiefenbach
The highest road in the Eastern Alps ends at this glacier and the modern Tiefenbach glacier restaurant. Quality is guaranteed wherever the Riml family cook. Despite this, you can be back on the slopes in no time after a visit to this high capacity self-service restaurant.
Bichl snack station
The Bichl snack station is located outside of Soelden above Niederthai. The views, the traditional farmhouses and the welcoming hosts reflect a piece of authentic Tyrol, devoid of any kitsch. Enjoy snacks and a cool beer in summer and home-made Tyrolean specialities in winter for a tasty treat.
