Hiking Schwarzenstein mountain hut

An ambitious hike that takes us to the alpine area on the south side of Austria's Zillertal Alps. The Rifugio al Sasso Nero at an altitude of 3026 meters.

It is worth setting off early to enjoy the freshness of dawn. The starting point is the Stallila car park, in a pretty refreshment station above St. Johann in the Ahrntal valley. The first stage, the warm-up programme, leads to the Daimer hut. The actual tour of the mountain begins here. The change in the mountain areas is very interesting. The meadows near Stallila turn into high pastures and finally, beyond the edge of the forest, into stones and scree. The route is well maintained. However, with each step we gain more altitude. 2,500 metres are not to be underestimated. At times we pass effortlessly over a few piles of old snow. Then we face a steep rocky spur. But with the help of stone steps, a short ladder and a few metres on a wire rope, we manage this passage well. We are happy to live in some excitement. Now we are already at the site of the old hut. Only another hundred metres in altitude to reach the new hut. What an impressive view all the way to the Dolomites! After a good meal we comfortably descend into the valley.
