Best Hikes to Seethalerhütte
  • The Seethalerhütte on the Dachstein is located at 2,740m and is therefore the highest mountain hut in Upper Austria. Surrounded by the eternal ice of the Dachstein Glacier, the hut is in a breathtaking setting and offers a wonderful view of the mountains up to the Grossglockner.Delicious food, nice service, great panoramic windows in the dining room and a beautiful sun terrace with a mountain panorama. What more do you want??
    Oh, and you can also stay overnight 😉.

  • Approx. 2km away from the gondola mountain station - a nice destination for a short glacier hike.

  • Nice view, we took the gondola at 8:15. Later it is very crowded in fine weather.

  • A very nice mountain hiking experience in every season with a view of the Dachstein summit cross and Johann via ferrata & summit cross. The summit cross on the Dachsteinwarte can be reached in just a few steps.

  • After the old hut was demolished because of slipping and the new hut was built, you can have a wonderful meal here again. Great and friendly waitstaff. Delicious food at humane prices.

  • It was already a long exhausting way to stomp through the snow to the Seethaler hut. But the view and the meal suburb has compensated for it.

  • The first hut was built on this site in 1929 and managed by Sepp Seethaler for 50 years. The new hut, planned by Dreiplus Architekten from Innsbruck, was opened at the end of 2018.

  • Among the countless digital platforms available today, it's a delight to discover one that seamlessly blends a wide range of offerings with specific interests. On one such exploration, I came across voypost.com. Not only do they offer an impressive range of digital products, but they also provide content for fishing enthusiasts. This amalgamation of general and specific offerings makes it a platform that truly understands its diverse audience.
