Mountaineers, mountain bikers and gourmets know this alpine hut well because popular alpine pasture hiking tours lead past the hut into the Trattenbachtal Valley in the Hohe Tauern National Park. Many small mountain brooks bubble through these alpine pastures into the valley, providing great summer fun for children! The area around the Sonntagalm is also fantastic for mountain bikers – the tours even lead to neighbouring Tyrol.
The hut has been owned by the family for 300 years already and has been lovingly renovated. The warm colours of Swiss pine wood ensure a homely atmosphere on cold days. The kitchen is simple but radiates typical hut flair with its Danish oven, the gas stove and a large dining table. The small, icy cold well in the garden is used as “refrigerator“.
One thing is for sure: You experience a stunning view to the mountain range of the Grossvenediger when you enjoy your morning coffee on the terrace. A real panorama cinema.
Another special experience is when deer roam in front of the hut at dusk.
The serviced “Neue Sonntagalm“ alpine pasture is only a few metres away and serves Pinzgau specialities to nature lovers coming here for a stop.
In winter, you drive by car approx. 5 km to the Alpengasthof Rechtegg. From there you can take the ski bus to the Wildkogelbahn. The ski bus stop can be reached on skis in good snow conditions. An insider tip for ski tourers is the Kröndlhorn!
Our tip: Hans, the hut proprietor of the “Neuen Sonntagalm“, is a popular host and knows life in the mountains since he was a child. He knows the best hiking tours and can tell quite a few stories from the olden days.
