One of the most beautiful alpine pastures in the Dachstein region is the almost untouched Grafenbergalm, which you will cross after two thirds of the way.

The Grafenbergalm is well-known for its idyllic location and its alpine manager: the poet and author Bodo Hell. For years, he has spent his summers working as an alpine herdsman and dairyman, which inspired his literary works.

Destination

Stoderzinken

Turn-by-turn directions

At first, you will follow the path back to the Feistererscharte, a central crossing point above the Guttenberghaus. Follow path no 618 past the northern side of the Sinabell leading through impressive, barren scenery. This seemingly endless stretch of grey rocks is only contrasted by the green of the natural pits and mountain pines. To the east, the Stoderzinken and Grimming summits cover the horizon; on the north side, you can see the endless mountain range of the Totes Gebirge (Dead Mountains).

After walking for approx. 1 hour, the sight of the kettle lake Höllgrabensee (also called Silberkarsee) will make for a welcomed change of scenery from the otherwise barren landscape. Beginning of July, the kettle is often covered in alpine roses. The path to the Grafenbergalm follows through an inspiring landscape of large rocks, mountain pines, flowering meadows, gorges and small rock walls. When you reach the Grafenbergalm, you will understand why poet Bodo Hell feels at home here. The alpine kettle with its green meadows and the impressive Grafenbergsee surrounded by mountain pines is truly one of a kind.

From the Grafenbergalm onwards, you will experience a change of scenery: forests with beautiful views onto the surrounding mountain ranges and kettles covered in a diversity of flowers. The path will constantly change direction, times following around a rock wall, then back through the woods. The path offers a varied experience until the end - just like the landscape of Styria.

Through a clear larch forest, the path gently winds up the Brandner Urwald (virgin forest) to the Brünnerhütte (no refreshments offered here). From there, you will walk another 20 min to the Steinerhaus (Tel. +43 3686 30960), a guesthouse with all the comfort and advantages, close to Stodezinken’s summit. The summit will offer beautiful views to the eastern Alps (Tourist Info Centre Tel. +43 3685 2213122). For a culinary delight, stop by the Rosemi Alm (Tel. +43 3686 30960) or the Stoderhütte (Tel. +43 3686 2646 – owned by the Steinerhaus), both close to one another.

Alternatively, you can spend the night on the idyllic Viehbergalm in the Rizingerhütte (Tel. +43 3685 22474 or +43 67 9459817), an intermediate stopover of Stage 3. The Rizingerhütte offers a fantastic location with culinary treats and, a beautiful dorm with 8 beds. This variant of stage 2 adds 17 km in length as we take a left from the Brünnerhütte to the Notgasse and the Viehbergalm. As a result, Stage 3 to Bad Mitterndorf will be shorter by 13 km.

Wir wanderten vom Guttenberghaus zur Grafenbegalm, vorbei am Grafenbergsee, Ahornsee, zur Brunnerhütte und Steinerhaus. Nach einer Stärkung gings weiter durch die Notgasse zur (Viehbergalm) Ritzingerhütte. Mit eine sehr freundliche Aufnahme, ein gutes Abendessen und eine angenehme Nachtruhe beendeten wir (4 Personen) den sehr anspruchsvollen Tag.
