The southern side of the Dobratsch and the extensive landslide area of "Schütt" is not only one of the most impressive and scientifically-interesting landscapes of Carinthia, it is also one of the major natural landscapes of the entire Alps region. 

Author’s recommendation

Visit the "Almwirtschaft Schütt" and enjoy a fine "Brettljause," a hearty sampler of different Carinthian meats and cheeses.

Destination

Oberschütt Fire Station

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Oberschütt Fire Station's parking lot, you take a paved road for about 100 meters to the southwest.  This leads you to a wide dirt road, with a few small dips and climbs.  You gain insight into the original course of the Gail River and soon reach an old weir from 1903.  Once you reach the weir, you are only 15 minutes from the destination: "Der Almwirtschaft Schütt," or "Schütt Mountain Pub" in English.  This is a cozy tavern where you can enjoy Carinthian specialties.
