Hochsteinhütte

The Hochsteinhütte (2,023 metres) is a mountain hut in the Villgraten Mountains and easily accessible from the nearby town of Lienz.

Impressive mountain refuge high above Lienz
Austrian Alpine Club, Lienz Division

Enjoying a wonderful location high in the mountains, yet at the same time easily accessible from the nearby town of Lienz, the Hochsteinhütte offers the best of both worlds. The hut can be accessed on foot, by bike and, in winter, on skis. In summer it is popular with families and a good starting point for relatively easy walks and hikes, while in winter it is a great place to stop off for a drink and a snack while enjoying fabulous views of Lienz and the Lienz Dolomites. The hut is open from early May until October as well as Christmas until March. There is accommodation for up to 20 people in a mix of private rooms and dormitories. The food is healthy and hearty. Debit and credit cards are accepted. The original Hochsteinhütte, built in 1895, burned down in 1929 and was rebuilt in 1931. The hut was extensively renovated and modernised in 2009.
