Adamekhütte / Adamek hut

Caution at the edge of the glacier!

High above the Gosau valley, at the foot of the mighty Dachstein glacier at 2.196m above sea level, is the Adamekhütte - affectionately named "station of the Alps" amongst insiders. It was once the hut of the Austrian Alpine Club - today a meeting place for mountaineers, hikers and climbers and is surrounded by the foothills of the mighty Dachstein glacier. Its origins date back to 1879: at that time its predecessor was the spartan Grobgesteinhütte which was located further below. The current refuge opened in 1905 and since its last general renovation, is now considered one of the most modern huts in Austria.
