The oldest hut in the Gesäuse is the one with the apt and resonant first name "Ennstaler". The year 1885 is written in old-fashioned letters on its wooden forehead. Whether to continue on to the Tamischbachturm peak after the stop at the Ennstalerhütte is a matter of gut feeling. Or the too-full stomach. It depends.

Once you've tied your hiking boots, you're ready to go. The National Park Pavilion is the starting point for the hike to the Ennstalerhütte, which is botanically and zoologically very pleasing. Then the trail continues upwards through green forests, across yellow-spotted clearings. You almost have the feeling that you are walking through primeval forests, so rich is the vegetation that greets you from all sides. The shortest way to the hut is through the Tamischbachgraben, but you can also get up easily via the Mühlbach. Just as you like!

So cosy
The Ennstalerhütte is old. Its inhabitants are young. And the atmosphere you encounter here is correspondingly pleasant. In addition to the mattress dormitory, there are also a few "private rooms", which you should definitely reserve in advance. Everything is beautifully decorated. You immediately feel at home and would love to stay for several nights. The same feeling sets in during dinner or breakfast, which is often served through the window directly from the kitchen to the outside.
