The Ybbstalerhütte (1.343 m) at the edge of the wilderness area Dürrenstein can only be reached on foot. But then the wonderful Holzofenbratl tastes even better. By the way: As a "So schmecken die Berge" business, the ingredients come almost exclusively from the region. Hiking trails of varying difficulty levels make families and alpinists alike happy at Dürrenstein.

Summit and star gazing

Because there are so many tours around the Ybbstalerhütte, we recommend an overnight stay at the hut, which has been awarded the ÖAV environmental seal of approval and offers 47 cozy places to sleep. Then you will probably also see the fabulous starry sky, which shines especially clear here. For the family-friendly ascent, we recommend the paths from Steinbachtal or Stiegengraben (both about 2.5 hours on foot). Great tours also await around the hut. Our three favorite ones are the Große Hühnerkogel tour, the Noten tour with a visit to the summit cross and a view of Göstling, and the Dürrenstein tour with a fantastic view.

Opening hours: May 8 to November 1, 2021 open continuously, as well as in the winter holiday periods and on selected weekends in winter 2021/22
