Freshly prepared meals and tired legs go well together. No matter if you get to Buchsteinhaus via trail 641 (Rauchbodenweg trail) or if you choose St. Gallen as your starting point, the terrace at the modern Buchsteinhaus Lodge is sure to impress. The lodge leaves nothing to be desired and will definitely prepare you for what is yet to come – maybe one of the climbing routes on the south wall, which range from easy to more advanced? But don’t leave the lodge without having witnessed the impressive alpenglow – the view of the Hochtor Mountains is a unique site, especially when the Gesäuse is showing off its romantic sunset ambience.
It’s the cuisine that’s served at Buchsteinhaus that makes the lodge so special for locals and visitors alike. Behind the stove we find ‘Tschitschi’, who gained his cooking skills in Vienna and now uses them up on the mountain. At 10 pm it’s ‘Lights out!’, but no worries, there are comfy dormitories for everyone. After a mix of exercise, crystal clear mountain air and delicious food it’s safe to say that you will enjoy many hours of heavenly sleep.
