Municipality: Lienz

Relaxed route to the hut with fantastic panorama.

Startingpoint - Dolomitenhütte ist worth a visit and maybe one of the best located huts in the Lienzer Dolomiten.  One or more nights at the hut is recommended because it is a great place to start touring to many destinations. Eg. Schartenschartl-Dolomitenhütte

How to get there:

How to get there?  From Lienz to Tristach. Than you take the Dolomitenstraße up to Kreithof. If you park at Kreithof you have to take a parking ticket (3€ per day, if you stay over night you can get more day tickets at the Kreithof!). From the Kreithof you ascend the toboggan run or the slope up to the Dolomitenhütte. Ascending by car (snowchains or 4WD) you have strictly to respect the sledding hours  (check out the sign and traffic light at the beginning of the toboggan run)

Route description
Starting point:

Startingpoint is the Dolomitenhütte, except yu ascent from the Kreithof.


The ascent goes along the trekking path up to the Karlsbader hut or you follow the "Kar" direction South. After the first steeper section you will see the Karlsbader Hut behind some little hills. Now you just follow your eyes and ascent through the hills up to the hut.

From here you can find different options for touring.

    Comment / Trip report:

    Frühlingshaftes Flair mit hohen Temperaturen und massiver Sonnenbrand Gefahr.

    Die Schneeverhältnisse in der Abfahrt entlang der Aufstiegsspur sind nicht merh der Hit nachdem der letzte Schneefall 4 Wochen her ist und die Temperaturen der letzten Tage ihr übriges getan haben.

    War trotzdem ein traumhafter Tag.
