High above the valley at 1,699 metres, the largest and best-known lodge in the Gesäuse is surrounded by the Hochtor Mountain, Planspitze Peak and Hochzinödl Peak. These mountains also happen to be the most popular ones to climb after spending a night at the lodge. The ascents via Wasserfallweg Trail – for experienced hikers only – or via Johnsbach are two of the Gesäuse's classic hiking routes, while the lodge’s host Reini has ensured the lodge has become a real institution over the years.
The Mountain Hut Loop Hike – pack a few Gesäuse Perle Lemonades and get started at Ebnerkreuzung junction in Johnsbach. Gear yourself up with a backpack, enough water and hiking boots and soon you’ll be hiking from hut to hut. The four cosy mountain huts waiting to receive hikers are Kölblalm, Ebneralm, Zeiringeralm and Huberalm.
Try to imagine the following scene: A lodge so cosy it looks like something out of a fairy tale with the Admonter Reichenstein Peak as its backdrop. On the inside, the scent of culinary delights is sure to get your stomach grumbling, while outside the crystal clear mountain air awaits you. Traditional meals and drinks are always available here and the nights at the lodge couldn’t be any more relaxing. By the way – Mödlingerhütte Lodge is the only lodge in the Gesäuse that can also be reached from Paltental Valley.
Johnsbach. A small church stands alone near the edge of the forest. Surrounding it is one of the area’s most well-known cemeteries. In the mountaineering village of Johnsbach people know how to tell a good story, including quite a few tragic ones. At the mountaineers’ cemetery, those who lost their lives in the mountains of the Gesäuse, and indeed the world, are laid to rest. Walking through the remarkably beautiful tombstones and reading the stories they tell is a truly touching experience.
Weidendom Visitor Centre is one of the first points of contact for visitors coming to the National Park. Coming here means you will be surrounded by the Gesäuse Mountains and the beautiful, green ‘willow tree construction’. You can also discover the smallest of species in the micro theatre or become informed about your ecological footprint by following the labyrinth in the oversized footprint. If you are in the mood for it, you can also go on one of the theme trails directly.
Still looking for an exciting excursion? Why not book a guided tour of the Odelsteinhöhle Cave at Kölblwirt Inn? Famous for its aragonite crystals, the cave is a true highlight among the caves in Styria. It is located at 1085 m and while wandering through small and large halls, your guide will also tell you why it was declared a natural monument back in 1931.
