The new Spannagelhaus in the Zillertal

The Spannagelhaus in Hintertux has been shining with a new splendour since 2013. Since the renovation, guests have enjoyed the rustic hut ambience in the Spannagelhaus for the whole winter. The large sun terrace invites guests to enjoy delightful hours in the wintery outdoors, while the rustic lounges and the bar area with an open fireplace invite them to enjoy a cosy break on a demanding day of winter sports on the glacier. In the restaurant with waiter service, you are treated to regional Tyrolean delicacies and international specialities and you can also select fine wines from the wine cellar.

The Spannagelhaus is closed in the summer and is otherwise open from 9.15 a.m. to 3.30 p.m. There is no option for staying overnight. You can make a reservation on the telephone number: +43 5287 8510 360.
