The Berggeisthütte is located directly on the "Max Franz" ski slope in the middle of the Weißbriach ski area. It is open during the winter season - from December to March - and always offers varied evenings with hut magic and fun parties.

If you want to save your strength you can use the "Hüttentaxi". This brings guests to the hut for a fee and advance reservation.

Further information about the cab service is available at the tourist office under +43 4286 219 or at the Hotel Löffele under +43 4286 228

Destination

Berggeisthütte

Turn-by-turn directions

Starting point of the winter hike is the parking lot Hammerbodenlift at the cable cars Weißbriach. Just below the valley station of the Hammerbodenlift the forest path to the Berggeisthütte begins. At the beginning the signposted path is still flat, but later there are also some steeper parts. In snow and ice it was not necessary to put on shoe spikes to ensure a safe ascent. After a walking time of about one hour you will reach the Max-Franz-Piste, which you only have to cross to reach the Berggeisthütte.
