7 Essential Tips for Hut-to-Hut Hiking in Austria

  • Check the weather: Always keep an eye on the weather forecast. Afternoon storms are common and can catch you off guard.
  • Know the route: Familiarize yourself with the trail map and key landmarks. It’s easy to get lost in the mountains.
  • Pack light but smart: Your backpack’s weight matters. However, don’t skimp on essentials like a first-aid kit and a sleeping liner.
  • Footwear matters: Opt for sturdy hiking boots that offer ankle support, especially when carrying a heavy backpack.
  • Book in advance: Huts can get crowded during the high season. Book your accommodation as early as possible to secure a spot.
  • Fitness prep: Prepare yourself physically by hiking regularly. Multi-day tours require stamina and strength.
  • Respect the rules: Follow mountain-hut etiquette. For instance, quiet time usually starts at 10 p.m., and indoor shoes are a must.
