Lodge / hut

Your stay

The Habsburghaus is perched at 1,785 metres above sea level on the summit of the Grieskogel in the Rax Mountains. Hikers can enjoy a wonderful view of the Schneealpe, Ötscher and Hochschwab through the panorama windows of the restaurant.

Rest comfortably

After a snack, you can relax in the cosy sitting area by the stove with a book. If you want to experience the most beautiful sunset in the Rax Mountains in the evening, you can stay overnight.

As one of the excellent huts in the Vienna Alps, the Habsburghaus can be reached with good equipment via family-friendly hiking trails as well as more challenging via ferrata routes. The shortest ascent leads from the mountain station of the Rax cable car to the Grieskogel in two and a half hours.
