Guided hike in the Zillertal Alps Nature Park to the Berliner Hütte.

The "Berliner Hütte" glacier trails - guided hiking tour of the Zillertal alps nature park

During the last ice age, several glaciers in the Zemmgrund merged to form a gigantic ice stream, giving the valley its present shape. In the meantime, and as a result of climate change, the glaciers have retreated far into the high mountains. The highlight of our tour is the stage along the Glacier Trail (no ice contact), where we approach the “Berliner Hütte” in fresh mountain air. We learn interesting facts about geology, the formation of the Alps and the world of “Eternal Ice”. Finally, we reach the “Berliner Hütte”, built in 1879 and nowadays a listed building. It is a popular base for mountaineers and glacier researchers, and it’s a symbol of alpine history. The architecture and flair of the hut will work its magic as we enjoy the fascination mountain panorama on the terrace!
