The first hut was built in 1842 a few meters from its current position. In 1875 a refuge was built in the same place, named after Ignaz von Kürsinger, custodian of Mittersill, main organizer and member of the group of the first climbers of the Großvenediger.
The current north-east wing of the building was therefore built in 1885. Further expansions were added between 1886 and 1938, while larger restructuring and conversion measures (cableway, water and electricity supply) took place between 1977 and 1983 and gave the refuge its current appearance.
