This hut is actually a trail intersection and base for mountain tours, especially for the Hochmölbing peak. However, it is also an enjoyable hiking destination in its own right.
The hike on easy paths over luscious mountain pastures leads us up along the eastern slope of Hochtausing to the Langpolten Alm. For surefooted mountaineers, Hochtausing peak (elev. 1,823 m) is certainly a temptation, because its rocky ridge offers a fantastic panoramic view (via ferrata on the western side). We continue through the Langpoltner Klamml on the south-facing slope to the Thank Heavens Bench, which provides an impressive view.
Now we hike easily downhill through a sparse larch forest to the Hochmölbing Hütte. There is an alternative for our return hike: at the trail crossing at the Langpolten Alm, path No. 7 (also 209), branches off to the right and leads between Hochtausing and Bärfeichtenmölbing to the Bärfeichten Alm. From here, we begin our circumnavigation of the Hochtausing, which is constantly on our left-hand side (marking no. 7). Pathways take us over the Grafenhube, followed by a virtually level stretch almost all the way back to Schönmoos.
For sure-footed mountaineers we recommend a hiking tour to the summit of the Hochtausing.
