    The Hohe Dachstein is one of the most famous and imposing peaks in the Eastern Alps. With 2995m it is the highest elevation of the Dachstein Mountains and the second highest peak of the Northern Limestone Alps and is therefore often climbed. The Hohe Dachstein is surrounded by numerous glaciers. The summit can be reached from several sides via via ferratas.

    In good weather very crowded. The best thing is when you come across the Simonyhütte and before the first gondola at the entrance. If there is not much going on, abseiling from the summit is recommended.

    In good distance you have an excellent view of the three thousand meter peaks of the Hohe Tauern.

    Via ferrata (B) on the Hohe Dachstein (2995m). The entrance is located in a fairly steep ravine, caution is required when congestion, breaks or when creating the via ferrata set. The climb is good and mostly easy to commit. Shortly before reaching the summit cross a short, exposed spot, but well secured and almost "concreted".

    The tour on the high Dachstein you have to have just made times - since 2018, the Seethalerhütte is completely renewed as a base!
