Hubertushaus

The Hubertushaus hut is prominently enthroned on one of the rocky sides of the Hohe Wand.

For over 90 years, the Hubertushaus (which is a member of the Alpenverein or Alpine Association) has been a popular destination for hikers and climbers. Located at 946 metres above sea level, and directly on the Hochfallwand rock face, it is the perfect starting point for discovering the Hohe Wand.

Those who climb up to this cosy hut are impressed not only by the magnificent view (on clear days, you can see the Neusielder See lake), but also by the excellent cuisine. Kaspressknödel (cheese dumplings) and Spinatnockerl (spinach dumplings) are particular favourites of regular visitors to the Hubertushaus. In 2017, Andrea Steinschauer became the new leaseholder of the hut.

How to get to the Hubertushaus

For those who want to show their children how small the world looks from above, the Hubertushaus is a two hour walk from the “zur Kleinen Kanzel” guest house. The route from the railway station in Unterhöflein is a little more demanding, because you have to climb during the last stretch (difficulty level A). The ascent up the slope of the Gebirgsvereinssteig, with its overhanging passages, is very exciting – but only suitable for experienced climbers (difficulty level D). In principle, the following applies to climbing trails: you should always have sturdy shoes, a helmet and a climbing set with you.
