The Reitherspitze (2,374 m; the inscription on glass no. 2076 only claims 2,372 m) is located in the western part of the Innsbrucker Nordkette mountains, the southern part of the Karwendel mountain range north of Innsbruck in Tyrol. It is part of the landscape conservation area Martinswand-Solstein-Reitherspitze. The name of the mountain refers to the village Reith bei Seefeld, located at the southern slope of the mountain above the Inn valley.
The Nördlinger Hütte [left] is situated at an elevation of 2,238 m on
the southern ridge of the mountain. It is the highest mountain hut in the Karwendel mountains. It is open from end of May until mid
October (weather permitting) and is owned by the Section Nördlingen of the Deutscher Alpenverein (DAV, German Alpine Club).
