Hike through the Silberkarl gorge
in Ramsau am Dachstein
The Silberkarklamm in Ramsau is a romantic wildwater gorge in the heart of the Dachstein massif. The roaring torrent, the rugged rock faces and the alpine flowers along the way make this hike something special. The tour is also well suited for families and can be done well on hot summer days as well as in not so nice weather. In addition to hikers, climbing enthusiasts are also drawn to the Silberkarklamm gorge, as the Rosina, Siega and Hias via ferratas begin here.
The starting point for the Silberkarklamm is the parking lot above the Lodenwalke in Ramsau's Rössing district. From there you walk along the Silberkarbach to the entrance of the gorge. After about 30 minutes walking time you reach the end of the gorge. After a further 20 minutes walk you reach the Silberkarhütte at 1250 m above sea level. The refuge invites you to stop for a bite to eat with organic products from its own farm and offers a fantastic view from the sun terrace.
You can return via the same path or via the Heinrich-Pilz Höhenweg. In this variant, you go to the left of the hut via a path along the slope. You reach a beautiful vantage point and then have to go downhill via a narrow and steep root path through the forest until you reach a crossroads. From there, turn left back to the entrance of the gorge.
But if you still haven't had enough, you can hike further up and enjoy the breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains.
Insider tip: If you are lucky and look very closely, you might even see the ibexes making themselves comfortable on the warm rocks.
