Schönwieshütte lies above Obergurgl at the foot of Hangerer face. The ascent starts at the village edge of Obergurgl, leading past the 400 years old stone pine forest and the foothills of Hohe Mut mountain ridge. The last stretch runs parallel to the mighty Rotmoos ravine. 

Easier variant: Pedestrians can take an up- and downhill ride on Steinmannbahn at the foot of the stone pine forest (lift ticket required: € 15,00). From the top station there is a broad road leading directly up to the hut - that guards the entrance to Rotmoostal side valley. The hut taxi (call for reservation) will gladly pick you up from the top station of Steinmannbahn.
