The Dachstein hut-to-hut loop takes you on four spectacular hikes and four idyllic huts: the Austriahütte, the Guttenberghaus, the Adamekhütte and the Simonyhütte. Grandiose views, peaceful nature and a few meters of climbing await.

The best thing about this hike through the fantastic Dachstein mountains is that, at the end of each day, you don't have to descend back down into the valley. Instead, you can stay and indulge in the undisturbed mountain landscapes for a while longer.

Gravel paths that are steep in places with a rope for support and more leisurely high plateau sections will lead you from one hut to the next, to delicious meals and from sunset to sunset again and again. You need to bring along your weatherproof clothes, good shoes and sure-footedness. Poles can also make the ascents and descents much easier. Don’t forget to bring enough water with you, as the sun is strong at high altitudes and it can get hot, especially during the summer. Last but not least, it is also important to reserve a bed in the mountain cabins in advance.

Now, nothing stands between you and your next mountain hut adventure. You have our checklist, now you’re only missing a date in your calendar.

    Day three of your Dachsteinhüttentour and so much to say: It is demanding again, but the views are always worth it. Be sure to pack enough water. Especially in summer it gets really hot up here.

    The last leg of the Dachstein hut tour is the longest one. It is also a bit more demanding thanks to some exposed and rope insured sections. But after the tours of the last days you pack this with left!
