Klinkehütte

Admont

Alpine idyll and steep rock

Nowhere else in the Gesäuse mountains are 2000-metre peaks easier to reach than those proud peaks that line up around the Klinkehütte. And those who don't want to climb so high can relax on romantic alpine meadows or on a walk in a magical landscape covered in deep snow.

From easy to difficult

From the house car park, visitors are separated by just under 700 metres in altitude from the highest peaks of the Reichenstein Group - hiking pleasure and extreme mountaineering are literally close together here: the quickly reached steep faces of the Kalbling and the Sparafeld offer a variety of climbing routes in all degrees of difficulty. A gentler picture, on the other hand, is painted by the circuit over the Wagenbänkalm or the traverse of the Lahngang peak with its magnificent views.

Alpine educational competence

The ideal location and facilities have made the ÖAV refuge the "Alpine Education Centre of the Eastern Alps". Not only do various emergency organisations use the hut and its surroundings for training purposes, but the Klinkehütte is also considered an ideal base for local mountain guides and mountain hikers. The courses on offer range from rock taster courses to yoga on the mountain.
