      Hike & Overnight Stay at the Innsbrucker Hütte

      13.7 mi / 4511.2 ft gain
      Because the Innsbrucker Hütte sits on a ridge between two valleys, it can be reached from two sides; from the Gschnitz Valley or from the Stubai Valley. We chose to take the slightly longer (but less steep) route from the Stubai side. We parked the car in the village of Neder at the gravel parkin...
