Of course there is always an easier way on every mountain. With more than 500 km of hiking trails and one of the highest densities of mountain huts in the Eastern Alps, nothing stands in the way of a hiking experience lasting several days in the only Styrian National Park. The whole Gesäuse in one go is best experienced on the Gesäuse Hut Tour. From hut to hut and even completely flexible (no fixed places to stay overnight, numerous variations and completely mobile without your own car), the alpine Gesäuse is more beautiful than ever to hike.

Safety information

Mountain rescue emergency call: 140

From a technical point of view, the Gesäuse hut circular hiking trail 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 Hüttenrundwanderweg, as you will be hiking in mountains with altitudes up to 1,850 m.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Admonter Haus follow the path back south until you reach the first junction. There you turn towards Klosterweg (no. 633) and descend the steeper path to Hall over a wild meadow and through a beech forest.After the public swimming pool you will come to Haller Straße where you turn north (right). After about 200 meters you come to a junction where you turn left into Kirchweg. Through a small settlement and past extensive meadows, you reach a piece of forest through which you pass the Alpenheim and reach Mühlau. Passing the electricity plant of Admont you come to a parking lot with a chapel. Follow the long-distance hiking trail no. 601, then pass a railway gate and follow the forest road (no. 601) past the Pyhrgasgatterl to the Rohrauerhaus.

For 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!
