Welcome to Egger Alm

General Information

Gasthaus zum Rudi is situated on Eggeralm (1.420m), a high plateau with several alpine huts and directly on the route of the KHW and the Via Alpina.

The third-generation hosts serve their guests solely regional produce and traditional dishes. Hearty, rustic and natural is the guideline in the kitchen with dishes including ‘Rudis Frigga Pfandl’ - a traditional lumberjack’s meal - one of the favourites from their menu. Accommodation includes lovingly decorated single, double or triple rooms as well as bunk rooms.

This hut is also open during the winter months. Nestled in a wonderful winter wonderland the area is perfect for snow shoeing, cross country ski touring and tobogganing on the 9 km tobogganing run. Full moon hikes are also very popular.

Adventure Egger-Alm

Gasthaus zum Rudi is also popular for corporate functions, parties, birthdays, christenings, weddings and other functions.
