Olpererhütte einst

Established in 1881 by the section Prague the Olpererhütte is one of the earliest mountain huts  in the eastern Alps.  The aim was to allow climbers a "more convenient" climb of the Olperer.  Even hikes to the Fußstein, the Gefrorene Wandspitzen and Schrammacher should be simplified. 


The old Olpererhütte had eight mattresses in the loft and eight in the hay. On the ground floor was a cook stove. The flue gases were taken through a stove pipe through the gable wall to outside. The climbers had to bring their own food and fuel with them.

Olpererhütte einst

The hut was sold in 1900 to the section Berlin for 11,000 Mark.  In 1901 67 people visited the hut, including 64 men and 3 women.  In this summer 36 ascents to the Olperer and one to the Gefrorene Wandspitzen were performed. 


In 1902 a "Abort" was built next to the front door in a small porch. It soon became apparent that the capacity of the hut was no longer sufficient because of the growing number of visitors.  In 1931, however, an extension was added that included a separate kitchen and other lodging places. 


Another renovation in 1976 brought modern sanitation and an additional guest room, but the cramped conditions remained the same. The fully occupied hut escaped a catastrophe on 31st  July 1999, when an ice and rock avalanche from the Großen Riepenkees 2,800 meters above the hut, touch only a corner of the Olpererhütte.


Some national fame achieved the long-standing tenant of Olpererhütte, Olga Platzer, called the Olpererhexe by their originality in handling with the guests.


The section Neumarkt i. d. OPf. bought the Olpererhütte on 01.01.2004 from the section Berlin. Fire safety and regulatory requirements at that time had to be implemented urgently, also modernization in terms of modern requirements for hut.


It turned out that this was not possible with the 125 years age of the hut. Thus, the decision was made for a replacement. In 2006 the old Olpererhütte was demolished and the construction of a new building was started. In 2007 the new Olpererhütte was opened and the due 125th Anniversary was rescheduled.

The new design of the hut, with simple construction and high-quality technical equipment is inspired by traditional climber accommodation. It takes into account the contemporary requirements and has a high architectural quality. 

Environmental Protection

The German Alpine Association (DAV) has been committed many years ago for the use of renewable energy - as a natural conversation organization.


The Section Neumarkt i. d. OPf. Of the DAV has taken the commitment to nature even further. 

With the nature of YOU and YOU

In the choice of building materials for the new Olpererhütte the values of the so-called grey energy and recyclability have been considered. 


So-called grey energy is that which is required for the production of the building material. 

  • Wood is as a renewable raw material CO2 neutral thus contribute to climate protection 
  • Photovoltaic systems and a rapeseed oil-powered block heating works are producing the necessary electricity and hot water 
  • The wastewater is treated in a fully biological sewage treatment plant with membrane filtration

A trailblazer in environmental protection ...

Functional description of the wastewater treatment
The wastewater flows to the treatment plant of Olpererhütte and will screen in a first step by 6 mm. Thereafter, the screened wastewater runs into a lifting station, from where it will pump into the first fluidized bed reactor. Kitchen wastewater will pretreat in a grease trap and separate in floated grease and settled sludge.
The biological treatment consists of three fluidized bed reactors connected in a cascade with each other. The fluidized bed reactors contain growth bodies on which microorganisms colonize (immobilize). Oxygen will supply via membrane plate from the container bottom in the wastewater.


The biologically treated wastewater flows afterwards from the fluidized bed reactors into the secondary clarifier. Here the material from the biological stages will settle as secondary sludge. The sludge will feed via two pressure lines to a bag filter for storage. The floating sludge will pump also in the bag filter.


The treated effluent leaves the secondary clarification via a dip tube, which prevents the escape of the growth bodies, and runs into the infiltration system.
