Your Chalet in the Wipptal
Welcome to the Trinser Hütte!
Welcome to the Trinser Hütte - the luxury chalet in the Wipptal (Tyrol, Austria). A holiday home like you won't find it for a second time. With a unique location, comfortable and lovingly furnished, family friendly, with room for up to 10 people and with fantastic leisure possibilities in winter and summer. Look around you and if you have any questions, ask them. We look forward to your visit!
What can we say - we have planned it, after all, and fulfilled us a dream. Since winter season 2019/2020 it is finally available for rent. One thing we can promise you - you will feel comfortable!
Wood, wood, wood - the building quality
Wood, wood, wood, the scent of Swiss stone pine, and the whole always comfortably warm. Best Austrian carpentry. The Trinser Hütter is excellently insulated and acts like a magnet on sunshine. Here you can switch off, and if we weren't in Austria, you would say it is "hyggelig".
Room for 10
The Trinser Hütte offers on the ground floor a large dining and living area, a terrace with a view of the valley as well as a hall and a sauna. On the upper floor of the Trinser Hütte there are 4 bedrooms; three with two beds each and one with a double and a bunk bed. One bedroom has an en suite bathroom. Ideal for two families, or an extended family, or a group of friends, or or or or. In total the cabin has three bathrooms plus a separate toilet. Enough space for privacy.
The rooms of the Trinser Hütte are simple but well furnished. Floors and walls are made of untreated pine wood. Solid wood beds. Excellent mattresses, cupboards with sliding doors, bedside lamps with USB power supply. Two rooms have a balcony, all rooms have large windows.
Ideal for families
We ourselves have three children and in 10 years of holiday experience we have learned a lot, which we have now put into practice. Therefore, the room layout, the high-quality equipment and the large space available make the Trinser Hütte ideal for families. Games and a Playstation are on site, and on the meadow in front of the sun terrace you can play in summer and winter without danger.
In winter, the nearby Bergeralm offers real ski in/ski out (no need to put children in the car and change in the draughty car parks!)ö Two ski and snowboard schools offer child ski courses and a ski kindergartena. Substantial discounts for families with children and free child day care. And the Bergeralm toboggan run is a real family highlight!
The Bergeralm is also an attraction for families in summer. Child-friendly hiking trails and the Bärenbachl Water & Adventure World make family hearts beat faster.
Holiday home with hotel comfort
The Trinser Hütte has a reception desk where you will be welcomed and everything will be explained to you. There you will get the key and the Wipptal guest card, and you can also book a bread roll service there. If you have any questions or problems you can always contact the reception.
We have equipped the Trinser Hütte with everything you need for a luxurious and comfortable holiday with family or friends - whether summer or winter, skiing or cycling, hiking or just relaxing. There is really everything, from the Finnish sauna to the sun terrace, espresso machine, bicycle box, shoe dryer, Playstation and camaro grill. Free HighSpeed WiFi is a matter of course. And the view of the Alps anyway. You can find an overview of the equipment highlights here.
The Wipptal Guest Card
On arrival at the Trinser Hütte you will receive the Wipptal Guest Card, which gives you access to numerous discounts and exclusive events. You can rent certain equipment for free, take the S-Bahn to Innsbruck, participate in the activities of the guest programme, receive discounts on cable cars, museum admission, and much more.
Location, location, location - the best, for the greatest holiday
The Trinser Hütte is located directly at the Bergeralm ski area. You don't need a ski bus, nor a car. In three minutes you can reach the valley station of the ski area on foot. And back via the valley run. From the Bergeralm mountain station, a toboggan run leads to the valley station. And for those who are looking for a change - there are other ski areas nearby. The Bergeralm area is also ideal for snowshoe tours. And ski tours can be found in the immediate vicinity, just a few minutes by car.
But also in summer the location is fantastic. Road bike tours, mountain bike tours and hiking tours with start directly from the Trinser Hütte. And if you strive for higher things: via ferratas and alpine tours can be found in the Navis and Gschnitztal valleys, just a few minutes away by car or bike.
Steinach lies directly on the historically important Brenner road, which has been an important Alpine crossing since ancient times and was used by the Romans, for example. The municipalities along the Brenner road have joined forces in the Old Brenner Pass Road project, documenting and making accessible important historical sites. Steinach is therefore also ideal for larger excursions: Innsbruck is just 25 minutes away, as is Sterzing.
One thing we don't want to hide - when you approach the chalet, the Brenner motorway is visible. That is not to be discussed away. But you won't hear it - I promise, the murmur of the Trinserbach is much louder. And in the chalet, and from the terrace, you cannot see it either.
The interior highlights
The Trinser Hütte is of high quality and comfortably equipped. We pay attention to details. And because we know that holidays should be the most beautiful time of the year, we have also thought of loving decoration ideas.
On the shelf in the living room you will find a selection of books and illustrated books that invite you to read and leaf through. What they all have in common is that they all deal with the mountains.
When, if not on family vacation, is it time to play with the whole family. In the evening, at the big table, while the fire is burning. You will find a selection of suitable and beautiful games in the kitchen block.
Of course you will find free highspeed WiFin the Trinser Hütte. You will find the password in the welcome folder and on the router. It is located in the hall.
In the hall there is a boot dryer where you can dry ski boots, hiking boots, gloves, scarves and so on. One request - do not use the sauna to dry clothes
Bicycle/ski box with connection possibility for chargers
From spring 2020 you will find a bicycle/ski box in front of the chalet, which is secured with a lock. In winter you can safely leave your skis, snowshoes and sledges there, in summer your bikes. For e-bikers there is a timer to which you can connect your chargers. Press 5 times = 5 hours charging time.
Combination machine for filter coffee and espresso
Our coffee machine makes filter coffee and also has a filter holder and milk foamer for espresso and cappuccino. While the filter machine can be operated by anyone, the operation of the filter holder and the milk foamer is somewhat tricky. Don't worry, you will find a user manual in the guest folder. One request - clean the filter holder and the milk foamer after use.
The Trinser Hütte has a small but nice wellness area with a Finnish sauna. Is there anything better after a day of skiing or a strenuous bike or hiking tour? You will find a user manual in the guest folder.
The gas fireplace provides cosiness and warmth. And the best: no dragging of wood, no ashes, no smoke. Simply switch it on and off with the remote control. And enjoy the warmth.
Playstation + DVD player
The large television in the living room has a Playstation, which can also play DVDs. A selection of games and DVDs can be found in the kitchen block.
For barbecue lovers there is a Kamado grill on the terrace, which can be used all year round. With this grill everything is possible - sausages, vegetables, steaks, pizzas and even Pulled Pork. A manual and a recipe booklet can be found in the guest folder. All you need is some charcoal. One request - please clean the grill after use and cover it with the rain cover after it has cooled down, so that the following guests will also enjoy it.
In the green USM-Haller car there is a small but nice hifi system. Next to the tube amplifier there is a WiFi radio, the most important stations are programmed in. A manual can be found in the guest folder. With the Bluetooth adapter (on the right side of the small BOSE tweeter) you can connect your mobile phones or tablets and play music. To do this, press the central pairing button on the adapter. The blue LED on the bottom of the device will then flash. Then switch on the Bluetooth mode on your device, and select "Esinkin BT Adapter" from the list. If the connection is successful, the blue LED will light up continuously. If the device requires a password, try "0000" or "8888".
Steinach and the Wipptal
Steinach is centrally located in the Wipptal, about halfway between Innsbruck and the Brenner Pass. From here, five side valleys lead into the high mountain beer landscapes of the Stubaier Alps (Gschnitztal, Obernbergtal) and the Tuxer Alps (Navistal, Valser Tal and Schmirntal) - all reachable in a few minutes by bike or car from the Trinser Hütte.
It is not for nothing that the magazine GEO has named Wipptal 2017 as one of the world's top 10 trendy travel destinations - in addition to well-known destinations such as Canada, Finland, Wales and South Korea Unlike many places in the surrounding area, GEO writes, Wipptal has decided not to aim for mass tourism. Nevertheless, Steinach is conveniently located. Car, train, plane - everything is possible. And you usually don't need snow chains either - the Brenner roads make it possible.
In Steinach you will find everything you need to live. Restaurants, supermarkets, cafes, museums, pharmacies, medical doctors, and so on.
Winter in Wipptal. Endless possibilities, starting right at the door of the Trinser Hütte. Ski in/Ski out, of course, but that's not all. Winter offers so much - tobogganing, winter walking, ski tours, snowshoe tours, ice skating, and here you can have it all. Find your favorites on this interactive map. And in the evening, after a sauna session, you can look back on the day in fronct of the fireplace.
Did someone say summer? Endless long days, lush mountain meadows, cowbells, and a cool drink on a mountain pasture ? Anything is possible - as you can see on this interactive map. At the Trinser Hütte you are right in the middle of it. And in the evening you can relax on the terrace, looking at the mountains.
Is this holiday ? Yes, it is.
The Wipptal valley maintains its cultural heritage and is rich in cultural events. You can find a calendar of events here. With the complimentray Wipptal Guest Card you will get privileged access to many events. And there is a exclusive guest program, which is open to you.
The Trinser Hütte is an ideal starting point for excursions to the near and far surroundings. And the best thing: You can do almost everything by train, and you can travel for free with the Guest Card to Innsbruck!
Once by car or by train over the Brenner Pass, and you are already in Sterzing, the northernmost town in Italy. Some people say that just for the cappuccino alone the tour is worthwhile. But Sterzing also has a great old town to offer.
Have you ever stood on a glacier - this is not only an experience in winter but also in summer. And from the Trinser Hütte you can get there in 50 minutes by car.
Innsbruck is the capital of Tyrol, and likes to call itself the immodest "capital of the Alps". You will find a young and international audience there, thanks to the large university. You can get there with the S3/S4 or by car - in both cases in less than 30 minutes. And there is a lot to discover: Golden Roof, Strudelcafes, the Nordkettenbahn with the Alpenzoo, the Bergisel with the famous ski jump, and last but not least the many museums.
Brenner Outlet Center
The outlet centre on the Brenner pass is worth a visit not only in bad weather. You can get there with the S4 or by car - in both cases in less than 30 minutes.
Swarovski Crystal Worlds Wattens
They say there are people who are downright addicted to Swarovski crystals. For those there is the Swarovski Crystal Worlds of Wattens. Located in the Inn Valley, 40 minutes by car from the Trinser Hütte.
Old Brenner Pass road
Steinach lies directly on the historically important Brenner road, which has been an important Alpine crossing since ancient times and was already used by the Romans, for example. The municipalities along the Brenner road have joined forces in the Old Brenner Pass Road project, documenting and making accessible important historical sites.
To the Dolomites
Often called "the most beautiful building in the world" (according to the architect Le Corbusier and the mountaineer Reinhold Messner), you will find in the Dolomites the probably most striking mountains of the Alps (Rosengarten, Drei Zinnen, Langkofel, to name only a few). Actually they are worth a holiday of their own. You can explore them from the Trinser Hütte by car, for example on the route Steinach-Sterzing-AltaBadia-Gröderner Joch-Wolkenstein-Sellajoch-Canazei-Karerpass-Welchnofen-Eggental-Bozen-Sarntheim-Penserjoch-Sterzing-Steinach. A super route, but also long (298 km / 6 h net travel time) and very winding. If necessary, you can take a short cut back from Bozen via the Brenner motorway
How to get there
Steinach is located at the Brenner Pass. It is one of the main traffic routes in Europe. This has advantages, because you get there quickly. How, we show you here:
By train from the north
Steinach is ideally reached by train. From Innsbruck, which can be reached from Salzburg, Munich and Bregenz and is thus excellently connected to the Northern European railway network, the S-Bahn S3/S4 trains run every 30 minutes in the direction of Steinach.
If you book early, Deutsche Bahn offers unbeatably favourable savings rates. It is also recommendable to travel by night train of the Austrian Federal Railways (Night Jet), which departs e.g. from Düsseldorf or Hamburg and arrives in Innsbruck at 9.15 a.m. the nex morning
For train enthusiasts, it is recommended not to travel via Munich/Kufstein but with the Mittenwald railway from Munich-Pasing via Garmisch and Seefeld. The route offers spectacular views of the Karwendel, Zugspitze and Inn Valley, with the tunnel and bridge-rich passage of the Martinswand. You can find suitable connections if you enter Garmisch on the booking page of the railway at "Insert intermediate stops".
By train from the south
There are also trains from Bolzano (66 km/1.30 h), either with the Eurocity or the REG to the Brenner Pass, and then change to the S4.
From Steinach station it is about 1 km to the Trinser Hütte.
We are also currently in the process of organising luggage transport for the "last mile" from the station to the Trinser Hütte.
You can also take the ski bus 4141 to the Bergeralm valley station, or simply take a taxi.
By car from the north
Steinach is located directly on the motorway shortly before the Brenner pass. Besides the vignette for Austria, the use of the Brenner motorway (A13) is also subject to toll (9.50 € for a single journey to the Matrei-Steinach exit). The best way to get to Innsbruck is via Munich - A8 - Inntaldreieck or, coming from the A7 via Reutte and the Fernpass, or, coming from Lake Constance, via Bregenz and the Arlberg tunnel. It can make sense to leave the Brenner motorway already at the exit Schönberg in Stubaital (toll until then 3,00 €) and to drive the remaining 13 km on the Brenner road (B182), which runs very straight from Schönberg towards Steinach (Attention, radar control in Schönberg!). The lower part of the Brennerstrasse between Innsbruck and Schönberg is very curvy.
By car from the south
It is recommended to travel via the Brenner motorway (A22) via Bolzano and Vipiteno. At the top of the Brenner Pass it makes sense to change to the Brenner road (B182) and stay there for the remaining 15 km.

Innsbruck Airport is served by various European cities in summer and winter. The onward journey to the Trinser Hütte can be made by public transport (bus line F to Innsbruck main station, then with the S-Bahn S3/S4 to Steinach; approx. 1 h/7,50 €).
