The Ackerl Hut (German: Ackerlhütte) is an Alpine club hut in the Wilder Kaiser mountains in Austria. It is run by the Kitzbühel section of the Austrian Alpine Club and lies at a height of 1,455 metres (4,774 ft) (according to other sources 1,456 m or 1,465 m) below the south faces of the Regalmspitze, Ackerlspitze and Maukspitze.



It is a self-service hut with 15 mattresses that serves as a base for mountaineers and climbers. From June to September the Ackerl Hut is managed, at a least at weekends, otherwise it is not open and only accessible with an Alpine Club key.
