Culinary route Jamtalhütte

Galtuer civic centre – Gasthof zum Rössele Hotel & over the bridge – right to the Jamtal – Alpe Egg – Menta Alp – Scheiben Alp – follow the road to Jamtal Hut

The Jamtal is one of the most beautiful high valleys in the Paznaun Alps. It extends from Galtuer in the south to the glaciers, which can be seen from the beginning of the valley. Starting from the Galtuer civic centre the hiking path leads around the Menta Alp (1,657m) and the Scheiben Alp (1,833m). After the 3-hour hike you will find the Jamtal Hut at 2,165m, offering stunning views of the huge Jamtal glacier and its surrounding peaks. Towards the end of June and the beginning of July the blossoming alpine roses provide an even lovelier hiking atmosphere. 

The Jamtal Hut is surrounded by the Silvretta’s highest peaks, like the Fluchthorn, the Jam-Peak and the tri-state-peak – to name but three of the 44 mountains higher than 2,000 or 3,000 metres. The hut is located right in the middle of this wonderful landscape. 

Due to the huge glacier area, this Silvretta region is also known as the “Blue Silvretta”. The side valleys surround the hut in a star-shaped pattern and therefore offer a wide range of hiking tours over rocks and ice, catering for all levels of experience both during the summer and winter months. The area also provides wonderful hiking paths for families. Start your climbing experience on one of the climbing crags near the hut, on the West Gamshorn or on the “via ferrata” on the Pfannknecht.

The Jamtal offers mountain biker easy gravel road ascent.
