Length: 17.9 km • Est. 8 h 10 m
This is the easiest ascent to the Großer Buchstein. The route leads from Gstatterboden over the Brucksattel and the "Krautgartel" to the summit. The Great Buchstein is that single, massively rising mountain, which first of all strikes everyone who approaches the Gesäuse from Admont. A sign at the parking lot marks the start of the ascent. Starting directly from Gstatterboden, the tour can be classified as very sporty (1650 vertical meters). We recommend an overnight stay in the Buchsteinhaus.Show more

Length: 14.0 km • Est. 7 h 44 m
A classic tour that can be extended to the Heßhütte. On this section you first hike on the waterfall to the Hochtor. On marked paths and climbs you gain almost 2000 meters altitude. The steep steps west of the waterfall are overcome with the help of iron ladders.Show more
