Mountain brunch

Mountain Brunch at the Egger Skialm

Pure alpine fun at the Kristall Alm hut

Our popular mountain brunch at an altitude of 2,000 metres features breath-taking views of the Hintertux Glacier. Sure to be one of the highlights of the week, and now a mainstay of “Kristall summer”, is our hiking day to the “Eggalm”, our hotel’s hut, also known among our guests as “heaven on earth”!

Hiking to the Eggalm, the Kristall’s hut

From 7:30 – Fill up at our breakfast buffet to prepare for your hike.

10:40 Meet in front of the hotel with a welcome from Ms Buchsteiner and our hiking guide Christl. We will then take the bus to Vorderlanersbach.

After we arrive around 11:00, we continue towards the Brandalm – from the Brandalm we then head up to the Eggalm (the last 600 metres treat you to a beautiful panorama trail).

Hikers arrive at the hut at around 1:15, non-hikers can reach the hut by taking the Eggalmbahn cable car (for a fee) and then hiking on a 150-metre even trail from the cable car station. Experienced bikers can take the forest trail to the hut. At an altitude of 2,000 metres above sea level, you will enjoy an unforgettable view of the Zillertal Alps and the Hintertux Glacier. Hotel owner Thomas Buchsteiner will await you at the hut with a hearty alpine snack and will be happy to play a few popular songs on his “Ziacha”, a Styrian harmonica.

At about 2:45, hike back down the valley with guide Christl and arrive at the hotel around 4:30. You can also stay at the hut to enjoy the views a while longer and take the cable car back down to the valley (for a fee).
