Café 3440 - Culinary delights & a panoramic view
Where heaven meets earth is the highest architectural highlight in Tyrol: Café 3440, a modern building that skillfully blends into the mountain world of the Pitztal Glacier. The height gives it its name: the 3,440 m high Hintere Brunnenkogel is well connected by cable car.
As Austria’s highest vantage point, the coffee house gives you a far-reaching view of thousands of mountain peaks in the Ötztal Alps and the sublime Wildspitze. But it is not only the high alpine open space and the fresh air that invite you to linger: At the Café 3440, you can expect culinary delights of a special kind.
Café 3440: moments of enjoyment in Austria's highest café
Café 3440 in Pitztal is unique. Sheltered yet with an unobstructed view of the Tyrolean glacier world, you can unwind here and enjoy regional delicacies.

Only two cable cars take you safely and comfortably from the valley up to the Hintere Brunnenkogel: the journey to Café 3440 with the Gletscherexpress and the Wildspitzbahn takes around 20 minutes.

Baked by hand and with love: Austria's highest pastry shop
Cakes, pies and sweet treats are created in the in-house pastry shop especially for our high alpine café. This is accompanied by barista coffee, selected drinks and a small, fine selection of regional dishes. We recommend the buckwheat cake, filled with “Grantenmarmelade” (= cranberry jam), or the cream cake with the resinous note of the local Swiss stone pine. The best thing is to visit our café on the Pitztal Glacier and see for yourself!
Every mountain hut needs a mountain hut host: the face of the Café 3440
Of course, our café is not a hut, but an architecturally elegant building at a dizzying height, but a rustic hut host is simply part of Tyrol. Sepp Eiter is the face of Austria’s highest coffee house. Always a good-humoured host with experience and wisdom, Sepp is popular and well-known among our regular guests.
Registry office at 3,440 metres
When, in addition to the invited guests, the surrounding three-thousand metre peaks also get together: A wedding on the HIGHEST OF TIROL is extraordinary and unforgettable. In Austria’s highest registry office on the Pitztal Glacier, more than 120 couples have said “I do” so far.
