A narrow hiking trail, under the mighty walls of the Dachstein massif, leads directly from the valley station of the Dachstein Glacier Lift to the Südwandhütte.
Distance 3.1 km
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.
The Südwandhütte is the starting point for hikes, via ferratas and climbing routes.
