Berliner Hütte (2042 m) is a nice hut with impressive views. It is a typical route in the Zillertal valley because of the easy path and the rewarding landscape. Sitting in the terrace of Berliner Hütte and eating some traditional food you can enjoy the views of the several three thousand peaks around you. The most impressive image is the massive glaciers of the peaks Hornspitze and Turnerkamp, just in the border with Italy. Not only the landscape is beautiful, Berliner Hütte has a lot of history, which is reflected in the dining hall of the hut. It was built in 1878 and was an important base along the Berlin High Trail, it had even a post office.
The route starts in the Alpengasthof Breitlahner, which has a paid parking. It is located in Ginzling, almost at the end of the Zillertaler Strasse, in the Zillertal valley.
