Safety informationMountain rescue emergency call: 140
From a technical point of view, the Gesäuse hut circuit has moderate difficulties, which are no problem for the sure-footed and experienced mountain hiker. All the stages run on mountain paths with red dots, which means that they are classified as moderately difficult hiking trails according to the classification of the Austrian Alpine Club. However, you should have a certain amount of mountain experience for the Gesäuse Hüttenrunde, as you will be hiking in mountains with altitudes up to 1,850 m.

Author’s map recommendations
EquipmentFor the Gesäuse hut tour, "normal" equipment for alpine hikes on unpaved paths is completely sufficient. In any case, we recommend sturdy shoes and telescopic walking sticks to take the strain off the knees on the sometimes longer descents. For all refuges along the trail you should also bring a sleeping bag and a towel. Since the huts where you will be staying overnight on your trail trip are very remote and high up in the mountains and cannot be reached by the luggage shuttle, we cannot offer any luggage transport for the Gesäuse Hut Tour. We therefore recommend that you pack your rucksack sparingly and only take what is really necessary with you to the Gesäuse Hüttenrunde. It can be quite liberating to be on the way without luxury!
