Gesäuse

Klinkehütte

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

hiking pleasure

From the house parking lot, just under 700 meters of altitude separate the visitor 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.
