Mountaineering

Gain insights into the Gesäuse

Get out there.

At a place where the Buchstein Mountains and the Hochtor Mountains look each other in the stone grey eyes and where two other mountain ranges are present, mountaineering clearly plays a central role.

pastures and lodges to well-known alpine climbing routes. It is not without reason that the Gesäuse is also known as the ‘University of Mountaineering’ – not to be understood in the sense of a university with tuition fees, but instead as a symbol of more than one hundred years of alpinism, during which the Gesäuse mountains have earned their place in mountaineering history.

From lodge to lodge.

For those fond of hiking we highly recommend exploring the Mountain Lodge Trail that will take you to the nine mountain shelters of the Gesäuse in several stages. Don’t expect this to be quick business, but rather a fabulous opportunity to really get to know the Gesäuse National Park. While on the trail you can catch a glimpse of peaks that are more than 2000 metres high as they stand proudly glistening in the sunlight. Are you already in the mood for climbing some of them yourself?

Impressive.

Later on these beauties are bathed in the red sunset light that will make the eyes of the observer sparkle with alpenglow. When hiking and exploring the region you should always keep your eyes wide open – on the one hand to see where to set foot and on the other hand to be able to marvel at all the wonders surrounding you. At a short distance away there are some little chamois, who have declared one of the last snowfields their personal playground. Close by, there is a pasture with cows, marmots, free-range pigs and a small lake that will leave you speechless. And from the mountain top you can enjoy a view that will quickly rearrange your priorities and show you just how impressive the nature in a National Park can be.

Honestly.

After doing sports, you can eat whatever you want. This voucher is definitely accepted at the several mountain shelters in the Gesäuse, because here the beer is cold, the roast pork (or venison) is freshly prepared and the pastries are delicious. In case you had too much to eat or to drink, just stay the night and breathe the crystal clear mountain air while dozing off.

In good company.

Those who prefer to climb the peaks instead of just gaze at them, but do not have complete and utter faith in their abilities, would do well to choose a companion: either in the form of a state-certified mountain guide or hiking guide. These enthusiasts are friendly, fun and even good-looking, but what’s most important is that they really know their way around the Gesäuse. They will also help you in assessing your own skills and will support you in achieving things that you might not have thought you were capable of. The Gesäuse mountains have an effect on everyone – you can see it in people’s eyes.
