Climbing in the Surroundings

Rock quality in the area around the Dresdner Hütte is excellent and offers perfect conditions for relaxing climbing days. Thanks to the altitude, it is never too hot, despite the rocks location in the sun. In good weather, climbing is possible from May until late autumn. Routes are relatively steep and in alpine terrain, but close to the Dresdner Hütte. While climbing one enjoys a view of the hut’s terrace and can smell the scents of freshly baked apple strudel.
