Hike to the Tiefental Alm mountain hut

On the Alpine Pasture Path, at almost 1,900 m a.s.l., the Tiefental Mountain Hut is located by the Pfitschebach brook in the shade of the forest: We start from the village of Scheibe near St. Leonhard.

The Tiefental Mountain Hut (Tiefental Alm) can be reached on an approx. 4.5 km long forest path, which branches off at Scheibe near St. Leonhard im Pitztal. We first walk through the forest towards north, then several bends follow until the bridge over the Pfitschebach brook (also called Gschwandbach). From the bridge it is only about 1 km to the hut. The forest thins out and the path crosses the "Pitztaler Almenweg", the Alpine Pasture Path, which leads to the Neuberg Alp towards north and towards south to the Arzl Mountain Hut. Accompanied by the babbling of the brook we manage the last a bit steeper section to our destination.

The Tiefental Mountain Hut is idyllically located on the edge of the forest straight on the bank of the Pfitschebach stream. Behind the mountain hut the peaks of the Kaunergrat crest with the 3,277 m high Gsallkopf rise into the sky. The hut offers good local food and is thanks to its petting zoo and playground also a beautiful destination for families with children.
