This day combines three things that we love the most – lots of skiing, beautiful nature and fantastic food. A 4-course meal awaits you at 4 different locations of the pleasurable Hut-Hopping Tour through the ski area of the Hochkönig. With the Hochkönig as a trusthworty companion for all the wintery views. It starts with a starter, an ‘Almjause’ snack with Schnapps at the peak in the Gabühelhütte in Dienten and sipping some soup at the Karbachalm in Mühlbach. Back in Dienten at the Bürglalm you’ll be able to power up with some farm potatoes for the final spurt. Because now it’s time for dessert! Let that word melt in your mouth – blueberry chopped up pancakes. If your mouth is starting to water then this tour is perfect for you! Let’s start with a ‘Highking’-gin as a treat thrown in on top.
HOTSPOTS OF THE TOUR:
Gabühelhütte – Dienten: The Gabühelalm is located at 1620 meters, only 200 meters under the mountain station Gabühelbahn. The landlady, Klara, serves the first course of the 4-course meal – a small ‘Almjause’ snack with Schnapps. It is also worth going up to this hut on a different day as Klara’s specialty are her well praised ‘Farm Donuts’.
Bergrestaurant Karbachalm – Mühlbach: A few swings and turns and one arrives at the second course: Cheese and liver dumpling soup with a drink. The Alm is a popular retreat for food connoisseurs of regional culinary delights and Austrian classics. The Karbachalm is a wine enjoyment partner of Ski amadé and a partner of the Pongauer Wild Gourmet Region.
Bürglalm – Dienten: In beautiful Alpine landscape at 1597 meters above sea level you can find the‚ ‘Bürgl’ as it is known by the locals. Chips are banned here so Gabi and Anton Bürgler are happier to add a delicious baked potato to the menu. Every day has a different theme so that the menu doesn’t get boring: Monday is pasta-day, Tuesday is Strudel-day.
Wiesenstadl – Maria Alm: Blueberry chopped up pancakes or in German ‘Heidelbeerkaiserschmarren – with this this word you will not only win the game Hangman, you have also arrived in culinary heaven. The hut is located 50 meters above the valley station Hintermoos, the dessert is best enjoyed outside on the cosy sun-terrace.
