January 17, 2020
The first section of the Dachstein circular hike takes you from the crystal-clear Vordere Gosausee to the Hofpürglhütte. A tour that will be remembered especially because of its great views of the surrounding mountains and the many rustic huts that invite you to take a break on the way. You need good footwear and a certain level of fitness, because there are some steep passages and therefore several meters of altitude to be overcome. Because you are going to alpine heights, you should be prepared for sudden changes in the weather and therefore you should bring weatherproof clothing with you.It starts at the parking lot at Vorderes Gosausee. You can also travel by bus 542. Before you start the ascent to Gablonzer Hütte, a short detour to the turquoise-blue lake is definitely worth it.You already cover a good part of the altitude difference under the lift route and over slight switchbacks and finally reach the idyllic Gablonzer Hut (1,550 meters). If you feel like taking a break, you can fortify yourself here briefly before continuing on the Austria path.This part of the hike offers breathtaking views of Lake Gosau and Törleck. Yes, you even cross borders (from Upper Austria to Salzburg) here. And you can already see the next rustic hut, the Stuhlalm, on the edge of the path, where you can taste the finest homemade specialties.Freshly strengthened, it continues on the last section of the stage. And up through rocks and mountain pines - a section where caution is advised - and finally via a leisurely path to your first stage goal, the Hofpürglhütte. From here you have a wonderful view of the Dachstein massif and can recharge your energy reserves with an evening snack before you continue with stage 2 tomorrow.
Exactly this tour I did in 1958, of course with different equipment and in still untouched nature 🥾
