Once the hiking boots are laced up the tour is about to start. A great starting point for the scenic hike up to Ennstalerhütte Lodge, with botanical and zoological treasures along the way, is the National Park Pavilion. The trail leads through green forests with clearings graced by a gentle yellow light. At times you will get the feeling that you are moving through a jungle because of the sumptuous vegetation that surrounds you on all sides. The shortest way to the lodge takes you through Tamischbachgraben Notch, but you can also get there via Mühlbach.
The Ennstalerhütte Lodge is old. Its hosts are young. And it’s this combination that makes for a real cosy atmosphere. Apart from the dormitory there are also several private rooms. If you wish to sleep in one of these you should definitely make a prior reservation. The rooms are charmingly decorated and invite you to stay for more than just a night – the same feeling sets in when having dinner or breakfast, which is sometimes served directly through the kitchen window.
The southern wall of Tieflimauer offers challenging routes. We recommend the western ridge (V) and the west wall (IV).
