Welcome to Hochweißsteinhaus

General Info

After the chaos of war and the prevalence of post-war looting the hut `Hochweisssteinhaus` was rebuilt and has been run by the same host family Guggenberger from Lesachtal since 1950. In 2009/10 the hut was upgraded by the Austrian Alpine Club, making sure that contemporary comfort stays in line with the old flair of this beautiful hut.

KHW 403

Experiencing the spectacular views via the Fleon valley in the Wolayer mountains is a must for every hiker. It is also possible to take a detour and hike to the ‘Öfnerjoch’ on the Italian border. The prominent peak near the hut is Peralba/Hochweissstein (2.693 m). Other summits nearby include Raudenspitze (2.513 m), Torkarspitze (2.513 m), Zwölferspitze (2.593 m), Mt. Avanza (2481 m) and Mt. Chiadenis (2.490 m).
