Relaxation - Tranquillity – Nature

Holiday at last on Lake Hallstatt! Fancy hiking, rest and relaxation? Then the cosy Schilcherhaus on the Gjaidalm is just the place for you! An old, rustic, simple, cosy mountain cabin purposely “off the beaten track". Here you will find what you have often sought in vain elsewhere ... Relaxation - Tranquility - Nature - Rest! Whether as a rest stop or overnight accommodation, the Schilcherhaus on the Gjaidalm offers rest and relaxation away from the hectic city life.

Idyllic, romantic and rustic mountain hut

Alone the close vicinity to the Krippeneck cable car station (about 10 minutes walk) make the Gjaidalm the ideal starting point for many hikes in the Dachstein hiking world. The beautiful scenic tour from the Schilcherhaus on the Gjadalm to Wiesberghaus and the descent to Hallsattt is recommended for experienced hikers and takes around about 5 hours. Also, even for experienced climbers the ‘Seewandsteig’ is one of the hardest and longest climbs in Austria - an extreme challenge. Luggage transport from the valley to the Gjaidalm is possible with prior reservation. For families with children we recommend the Heilbronn Circular Trail after refreshments for on the Gjaidalm. This starts below the cable car and after about 2.5 hours takes you back to the mountain station on the Kippenstein.

The morning makes the day!

Enjoy a special kind of breakfast. Take a seat and breathe in the early morning fresh air. Surrounded by pure alpine life, accompanied by the gentle ringing of cowbells, hereyou will find the ideal conditions to start your day. A hearty mountain breakfast with many regional products from the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut and a proper "mug of coffee" will get you in the mood for the day’s hiking, through the Alpine pastures, which lies ahead of you. The stunning landscape in Bad Goisern on Lake Hallstatt, Gosau, Hallstatt and Obertraun are thrown in for free! The breakfast is offered this summer from July to September, every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday between 9 .00  to 11.00 hrs.. in numerous mountain pastures in the holiday region around Lake Hallstatt.
