The Olperer is a 3,476 meters high mountain in the Zillertal Alps in the Austrian district of Tyrol. It is the main summit on the Tux Crest and is often crossed in the summer as climbers transit from the Olperer Hut to the Geraer Hut, the former is one of the oldest mountain refuge huts in the Eastern Alps. However, little has remained of the original hut with its hay mattresses and wood burning stove for heating and cooking. In its place now is a modern mountain hut with comfortable rooms and a superb restaurant. Splendid views all add to the enjoyment of the local cuisine.
