On rocky paths — Wolftrail Styria in Austria

This fantastic route takes us from west to east across Styria, a stunning mountainous region in Austria, from the Hohe Tauern over the Eisenerzer Alps to the Hochschwab group. Amongst this incredible landscape, wolves are frequently observed on hikes, adding to the magic.

Dotted with countless long-distance hiking trails, Styria offers a well-developed network of paths for an adventure; for our Collection, we selected the most beautiful sections in several mountain massifs. Alternating between valley and summit, hotel and hut, we experience the different mountain ranges of Styria.

We start with the imposing Dachstein massif. There, we cross the Schladming Glacier and hike through the fascinating karst landscape to the Guttenberghaus. Our next summit is in the neighbouring Styrian high mountain range, the Eisenerzer Reichenstein. There, we spend the night at the rustic Reichensteinhütte. Much of this is a ridge walk, so there’s always a fabulous view. Finally, we explore the northeastern Alps of Styria: the Hochschwab group. An extraordinary refuge awaits us there: the Schiestlhaus, awarded as the first Passivhaus at 2,146 metres (7,041 ft).
