Zupalsee Hütte is known to be one of the most beautiful mountain shelters all over Virgental Valley and provides an impressive view onto the summits of Hohe Tauern National Park. Its sun terrace invites you to stay, and also the “Zirbenstube” (indoors lined with Swiss pine wood) offers you a place to rest and calm down at. Moreover, up to 35 people can spend the night in rooms or shared spaces at Zupalsee Hütte. 2 bathrooms with shower provide extra comfort. To make your ascent easier, you can pre-order a Hüttentaxi (taxi service) that takes you to Wetterkreuz Hütte (phone: +43 (0) 4874 5227).

If you want to climb up without making use of the taxi service, start from Würfelehütte carpark in Virgen. The drive- and walkways mainly lead through forest land.
