The Siegerlandhütte is located on a hill at 2,710m - right at the foot of the highest mountains in the Stubaier Alps.

The hike starts at the Windachalm / Fiegl's Hut and continues through the wide Windach Valley to the Siegerland Hut.

Enjoy the view of the gentle pastures, deep gorges, a waterfall and glacier cuts.

Author’s recommendation

In summer there is a mountain taxi, which runs from Sölden to the Windachalm/ Fiegl's Gasthaus. So you can save the way from Sölden to the Windachalm.
