From hut to hut in the National park Gesäuse Stage 05B Weidendom - Admonterhaus

Open
Best chance: From the Weidendom adventure centre with the Gesäuse shared taxi to the Buchauer Sattel and ascent to the best vantage point above Admont - the Admonterhaus.
Of course there is always an easier way on every mountain. With more than 500 km of hiking trails and one of the highest densities of mountain huts in the Eastern Alps, nothing stands in the way of a hiking experience lasting several days in the only Styrian National Park. The whole Gesäuse in one go is best experienced on the Gesäuse Hut Tour. From hut to hut and even completely flexible (no fixed places to stay overnight, numerous variations and completely mobile without your own car), the alpine Gesäuse is more beautiful than ever to hike.

More information

From the Weidendom you simply order a taxi (Taxi Herrak 0664-344 42 35), which will take you in 15 minutes to the starting point of the second part of today's stage: the ascent from the Buchauer Sattel via the Granberalm to the Admonterhaus. 

From the car park at the Buchauer Sattel you follow path no. 636 over a meadow to a forest. Now partly on a good forest path, partly on the forest road - always following the mark 636 - first in the forest, then on the treeless, panoramic alpine pasture and later on a steeper ridge to the beautifully situated Grabneralmhaus (1.395m). If you need some refreshment before the last ascent to the Admonter Haus, you've come to the right place!To the west of the Grabneralm, you now climb a ridge (Gesäuse-, Dachstein- and Glocknerblick) and from there turn left to the junction with the ascent of Mühlau (path no. 633). Now steeper under the rocks of the Admonter Warte to the soon visible Admonter Haus, situated at 1.723m above sea level and thus the highest refuge of the Gesäuse. And - nomen est omen - you have the best view of Admont: enjoy it!

It is recommended to contact the Trail Info & Booking Centre before booking.
