Hiking to the Guttenberghaus

Open

The Guttenberghaus is located at 2,147 m above sea level, making it the highest Alpineverein hut with overnight accommodation in Styria.

The hike to the Guttenberghaus is a classic in Ramsau am Dachstein. The highest mountain hut in Styria is a worthwhile hiking destination, the view from the Feistererkar to the Ramsau am Dachstein plateau and the Schladminger Tauern opposite is magnificent. The Guttenberghaus is a stage point for several long-distance hiking trails and a meeting place for climbers, via ferratas and leisurely hikers.

From North and East:

Pyhrnautobahn in the direction of Liezen Ennstalbundesstraße to Schladming - exit Schladming Mitte. From here continue to Ramsau am Dachstein on the Ramsau Plateau and about 1 km after Ramsau Kulm turn right onto Rössingstraße. After a few hundred meters, turn left towards Feistererhof and follow the road to the car park.

The starting point for the hike is the car park below the Hotel Feisterer in Ramsau am Dachstein. This is where the ascent begins, which initially leads along a wide access road through the forest to almost the rustic and inviting Lärchbodenalm (1,406 m). Then the stony forest path runs through mountain pine alleys up to the rocks of the "Fischermauer". The trail now winds through the free, green slopes of the "Tiefkar", granting beautiful views down into the Ennstal and the rock faces of the Sinabell are getting closer and closer. Arriving at the Guttenberghaus, the panoramic terrace invites you to take a well-deserved rest and refreshment.

The Guttenberghaus is the starting point for via ferratas (e.g.: Austria-Klettersteig Sinabell).

Arrival by bus (No. 962) to the Berghof stop/Feisterer junction. The ascent to the starting point takes about 10 minutes on foot from there.
