The trail to the Südwandhütte is a high alpine hike at the foot of the imposing Dachstein south walls. The trail is wonderfully situated on the sunny side of the mountain, making the hike a pleasure until late autumn. The Dachstein Südwandhütte itself is located at 1,910 m above sea level, in the high alpine pasture area of Ramsau. The hut is staffed (self-service) and offers traditional hut dishes. Here you can enjoy the magnificent panorama from the spacious terrace to the imposing Dachstein massif and the Schladminger and Radstädter Tauern mountains.

Author’s recommendation
