>Relatively short distances> Suitable for families > Dogs are also welcome
Welcome to the Lasörling Höhenweg. Do you have little experience in the mountains or are you with your family? Then the Lasörling Höhenweg is a fantastic way to get to know the Austrian Alps together with your children. Enjoy beautiful views of the Venedigergruppe and Großglocknergruppe and stay in Austria's most hospitable mountain huts. The distances between the mountain huts are relatively short but can be extended with short day hikes from your accommodation. By the way, dogs are also welcome on the Lasörling Höhenweg!
Please Note! The distances are relatively short, but it is still a hike in the mountains on a so-called 'Höhenweg'. It definitely won't be a 'walk in the park' and you will also pass some more technical sections. The trek is around 50 kilometres long and has a total ascent and descent of 3,100 meters. During this 6-day trek, you will hike between 2.5 and 5 hours per day. Will you join us?
Hinterbichl to Clarahütte
We start the day towards the Islitzer Alm (be sure to stop here for coffee and kaiserschmarrn). From here it's just a short stretch to the popular Umbalfälle. Beautiful waterfalls that are also popular with locals on weekends. From here it continues gradually uphill to the Clarahütte at 2038 metres.
Clarahütte to Neue Reichenbergerhütte
On the second day of Lasörling Höhenweg, we follow the path back a bit until we can cross the mountain river Isel to continue into the Dabertal. In June, there is a good chance of encountering occasional snow remnants. Halfway through, we enter the Höhe Tauern National Park where we reach the Neue Reichensberghütte via a relatively flat path, which is located on the Bödensee glacial lake.
Neue Reichenbergerhütte to Bergerseehütte
Have a good breakfast today, because a tough hike is on the programme. We start the day with a climb to the Göslewand that towers far above the rest. From here we continue our path to the Rote Lenke, some 25 minutes from the Göslewand. This is the transition from the Bödensee to Kleinbachboden. The Rote Lenke gets its name from the reddish-eyed stone deposits at the transition. From here it is only downhill towards the Michtalscharte where we have a great view of the Venedigergruppe. Another short stretch and we reach the sleeping place for tonight: the Bergerseehütte with beautiful views of the mountain lake.

Please note that private rooms are more expensive and there will be an additional charge for this.
Accommodation at the huts includes dinner and breakfast. We will arrange this for you as well. This allows you to travel lighter and have one less thing to worry about. Bear in mind that lunch is not included, but it can be purchased at the huts. Here you can also buy an array of snacks and bottled water.
