The Pinzgau Hut (German: Pinzgauer Hütte) is a mountain hut at 1,700 m (5,577 ft) above sea level in the Kitzbühel Alps in Salzburg, Austria, somewhat west of the Zellersee and Zell am See's local mountain, the Schmittenhöhe (1,965 m).
The hut lies in a large forest clearing just south of the Kessel wind gap (Kesselscharte) on the eastern section of the Pinzgau Ridgeway (Pinzgauer Spaziergang) on long distance trail 02A, only 1½ km as the crow flies from the summit of the Schmittenhöhe and its upper cable car station.
The Pinzgau Hut is managed by the Austrian Friends of Nature and has 6 twin and 5 four-bed rooms and 14 mattress spaces. It is open from the beginning of June to mid-October; and in winter from Christmas to mid-April.
