THe Weinbergerhaus in winter
|Elevation||1,270 m (4,167 ft) AA|
|Hut type||privat Hut|
|Opening times||all year|
The Weinbergerhaus is located on the Brentenjoch saddle in the Wilder Kaiser nature reserve in the Kaisergebirge. For that reason the mountain hut used to be called the Brentenjoch Hut. Towards the west the view takes in the Inn valley, Kufstein and Kiefersfelden, and, to the north in clear weather, Rosenheim can be made out. To the east of the Weinbergerhaus is the Gamskogel peak (1448 m) and a rolling alm where dairy cows graze in the summer. To the south the rugged crags of the Wilder Kaiser form an impressive backdrop against the light, especially at sunrise and sunset.

- The same trails are used by fell runners.
- It is also possible to paraglide from the Weinbergerhaus.
- There is a toboggan run through the Brentenjoch to the Duxeralm. From there via Waldkapelle to Mitterndorf or via the ski piste to the Hinterduxer Hof and then along the toboggan run to Sparchen (note when it is closed!).
- From the Weinbergerhaus there is an unprepared, but avalanche-safe ski piste down to the car park of the Kaiserlift, which may also be ascended by ski tourists.
