“Hofpürglhütte” in Filzmoos

So far and yet so close

Although the “Hofpürglhütte” in Filzmoos is not located directly within the UNESCO World Heritage Hallstatt region of Dachstein Salzkammergut, the well-developed Alpine hut of the Austrian Alpine Association is a worthwhile destination for hikers who begin their alpine tours in Gosau.
Whether it is a three-day hike or an unforgettable 2-day overnight tour, this mountain hut will captivate you. Guaranteed!

Since more than 100 years ....

Since 1902 is the Hofpürglhütte at the foot of the large “Bischofsmütze” (Bishop’s hat) - a unique place, which was then carefully selected for the Alpine shelter. According to history, the plateau on the Hofpürgl was chosen as being the best and most beautiful place. Hikers will appreciate this as they enjoy the wonderful view of the surrounding mountains.

Hut to hut hiking

One of the most beautiful hiking tours to the Hofpürglhütte is the circumnavigation of the Gosaukamm. A two-day hike, which starts directly by the picturesque Lake Gosau. However also the "journey" over the “Adamekhütte” and the “Linzerweg” is not to be sneezed at. An impressive three-day, high alpine mountain tour with fantastic views over the Dachstein plateau. Each of them is a hiking enjoyment at the highest level.

There's always something going on!

The offer on the Hofpürglhütte is especially special: from here, recreation mountaineers can take easy hikes or even challenging climbing routes with level of difficulty ranging from level 3 to 8. On rainy days, there is even an indoor boulder and climbing walls in the hut. Hikers, guests, as well as mountain climbers also stay here overnight, as an overnight stay at the Hofpürglhütte will leave nothing to be desired: bright and friendly rooms and dormitories, hot water showers and drying room are available. The hut keepers also point with down to Earth delicacies, which provide strength for the next eventful hiking day.
