The hut on the edge of the Austrian Schneekar

The Wiener-Neustädter Hut is an Alpine hut belonging to the Austrian Tourist Club on the edge of the Austrian Schneekar ("Snow Cirque") in the west face of the Zugspitze at 2,213 metres above sea level[1] (2,209 m according to other sources[2]). The hut is resupplied by the Tyrolean Zugspitze Cable Car, whose cables run directly over the hut.

It was built in 1884, after the klettersteig to the Zugspitze had been secured in 1879.

  • from Ehrwald along the Georg-Jäger-Steig (duration: 4 hrs)
  • from Eibsee (duration: 4 hrs)
  • from the Riffelriß in 2 hrs (partly secured).
  • from Obermoos along the Binderweg in 3 hrs

Crossings[edit]
