The third part of the Dachstein circular hiking trail leads from the Südwandhütte, going up with the dachstein gondola, via the Sky Walk and the glacier over a long plateau to the Guttenberghaus.
ATTENTION: For using the Dachstein cable car it is absolutely necessary to make a reservation for the ascent about 1 week in advance at www.derdachstein.at. Otherwise it is possible that all seats in the gondola are fully booked. For the reservation guests are responsible for themselves.
Important note: For the ascent with the Dachstein cable car a reservation is necessary! Make sure you book your desired time frame a few days in advance.
Due to the high altitude, weather conditions can change quickly, so equipment for all conditions should be considered (rain protection, mountain boots, poles, warm clothing, etc.).
The hut keepers can assess the situation on the mountain very well, so they are good advisors when it comes to weather changes. Wrong equipment, carelessness, bad condition and wrong assessment of the situation can lead to critical situations. The glacier part should only be used on the marked routes, as there is a risk of crevasses.
