R39 Rastkogelhütte » Kellerjochhütte
  |   4h05   |   16.5 km   |   707 m   |   824 m

A leisurely hike over alpine meadowland and mixed mountain forest is on the agenda. There is a gentle downhill walk from the Rastkogel hut to Hochfügen and from there only a slight upward incline to the Loassattel pass, from where it is by all means possible to climb up to the Kellerjoch hut on the same day.

    Die Rastkogelhütte ist leider nicht zu empfehlen. Die Gastwirte sind sehr unfreundlich und diese Unfreundlichkeit macht sich im ganzen Haus bemerkbar.
    Da wir in der Hütte nichts verzehrt, sondern uns draußen selbst versorgt hatten, mussten wir pro Person 5,- „Infrastrukturbeitrag“ zahlen, worauf wir vorher nicht hingewiesen wurden.
    Ich kann den Grundgedanken verstehen, dass ein Konsum in der Hütte gewünscht wird, allerdings kann dies auch anders und netter kommuniziert werden.
    Wir haben uns hier rundum unwohl und nicht willkommen gefühlt.

    The Rastkogelhütte is unfortunately not recommended. The innkeepers are very rude and this unfriendliness makes itself felt throughout the house. Since we had not consumed anything in the hut, but had taken care of ourselves outside, we had to pay per person 5, - "infrastructure contribution", which we were not previously informed. I can understand the basic idea that a consumption in the hut is desired, but this can also be communicated differently and netter. We felt uncomfortable and unwelcome here.

    Belle étape bien fleurie. Nous avions prévu d'aller jusqu'à la Kellerjochhütte, mais un samedi soir par beau temps et sans réserver malgré le début de saison: plus de place!
    Nous avons dû redescendre de 850m et trouvé au sympathique Alpengasthof Hübertus à 1400m d'altitude, un peu en dehors du chemin, et au-dessus de Schwaz. Cette 2ème étape n'a pas été non plus de tout repos!

    Saturday, June 16, 2018 Beautiful step well flowery. We had planned to go to the Kellerjochhütte, but a Saturday night in good weather and without booking despite the start of the season: more space! We had to descend from 850m and found at the friendly Alpengasthof Hübertus at 1400m altitude, a bit off the road, and above Schwaz. This 2nd stage was not easy!

    Le refuge de Loassatel était complet, nous avions donc réservé à Kellerjochhütte. Et nous n'avons pas regretté. D'abord, après 3 jours de mauvais temps, nous sommes arrivés au moment où les nuages se dispersaient et le site est extraordinaire. On a une vue à 360° et on découvre la vallée de l'Inn avec Innsbrück et Schwaz. De plus l'accueil est chaleureux et nous avons passé une excellente soirée. Le refuge a été restauré avec goût. Je recommande donc de faire cette montée supplémentaire qui allonge un peu l'étape mais permet de goûter la plénitude de la montagne.

    The refuge of Loassatel was complete, so we had booked at Kellerjochhütte. And we have not regretted. First, after 3 days of bad weather, we arrived at the moment when the clouds were dispersing and the site is amazing. We have a 360 ° view and we discover the Inn Valley with Innsbrück and Schwaz. In addition the welcome is warm and we had a great evening. The refuge has been tastefully restored. I therefore recommend to make this extra climb that lengthens a little the stage but allows to taste the fullness of the mountain.

    There is a signposted hiking path from Pfundsalm to Lamarkalm. This way you avoid the asphalt road down to Hochfügen.

    Stay out of the abandoned ski-resort of Hochfügen. Try to make it to the Kellerjochhütte, with a beautiful view over the Inn-valley and Innsbruck. You will also see the Zug-spitze that you will pass later. Be sure to fill up your water-bottles in Loassattel, because there is no drinking-water at the hut, on the ridge the next day, until you are down in the woods again.
