Description: The Gjaidalm will be closed from October 16th, 2023 due to a company holiday.

The Gjaid Alm is one of the oldest mountain pastures on the Dachstein plateau and a popular hut for hikers and climbers in summer and for skiers, snowshoers and backcountry skiers in winter.

Escape daily routine

The special location of the Gjaid Alm on the high plateau of the Dachstein massif, surrounded by a breathtaking mountain backdrop, pine groves and lush alpine meadows, offers a stage for all eventsactivities and training.

Archaeological finds show that the Almboden was used for livestock as early as the Middle Bronze Age and Roman Age. Thus the Gjaid Alm is probably one of the or is the oldest Alm in the world. Archduke Johann also stayed at the old bull hut on the Gjaid Alm. In 1929, a new hut was built in place of the old bull hut and in 1953 the new shelter was the current Gjaid Alm.

The Gjaid Alm is one of the most beautiful alpine pastures on the Dachstein plateau. Archduke Johann spent the night in the old bull hut on the Gjaid Alm as early as 1810. As early as 1929, a new hut was built in place of the old bull hut. In 1953, the new shelter, the Gjaid Alm that is managed today, was already in place.

The good starting point invites you to numerous hiking and mountain tours, such as ZwölferkogelTaubenkogel and Gjaidstein are in the immediate vicinity. From here you can hike the Gutenberghaus on the south side of the Dachstein in about 4 hours. The Wiesberghaus and the Simonyhütte, via which the glacier and the Dachstein summit can be reached, are also popular from here. 

Whether Alm Kas Nocken, the Gjaid-Alm Brad'l from the Goiserer pork or just a little refreshment - our menu is sure to have something delicious for every hiker and mountaineer. The 2013 newly renovated rooms with hut character are equipped with simple wooden beds. We offer our guests various camps, shared rooms, twin rooms and those who like to sleep alone, of course, also have the option of a single room.

We are looking forward to your visit.
