Vorderkaiserfelden Hut

The Vorderkaiserfelden Hut (German: Vorderkaiserfeldenhütte) is an alpine hut in the Kufstein district, Austria. It is located at 1,384 metres (4,541 ft) on the southwest slope of the Zahmer Kaiser below the Naunspitze and high above the Kaisertal valley in the Kaisergebirge mountain range. It has a good view over the Inn valley and Kufstein and across to the Mangfall Mountains and the Wilder Kaiser.

The hut is managed by the German Alpine Club's Oberland section. It has 64 communal bunks, 31 beds, and a "suite" for a couple in love.

The Vorderkaiserfelden Hut is open year-round except three weeks in December and after Easter. It can be accessed from Kufstein, the hike takes about 2.5 hours, or from Ebbs, also within about 2.5 hours.

Already in 1889, a hut with 6 communal bunks and 14 beds existed.
