Recommended Hiking Tour - Wolliger Hütte - Auernig

click to zoom

The initial plan was to do a different recommended hiking tour each time. But then things changed and now this is the same tour like last year, but then it is not the same. A very good friend of our family is the new tenant of Wolliger Hütte and please believe me when I tell you it will be a sensation to have your afternoon snack there. We think that some of his signature dishes could deserve chef caps. On the surface they seem to be simple, but the quality of the products used is sensational. Best parts of the venison delivered directly from the local hunter, blueberry pancake made by using unprocessed organic milk, super rich cream from the same milk and blueberries handpicked from ~1500m altitude behind the hut,..) So, I'll be there and I am looking forward to meeting you there as well.. : )

You can start walking from the village center. For hiking to Wolliger Hütte or Auernig meeting at 10:00h at the village center (marked A on the map on the how to get there page) should be fine. For Wolliger Hütte only you could start later as well. Following walking times should be fine for average hikers:

If you make it up to Auernig you will be rewarded with an amazing top-down-view of Mallnitz lying to your feet. But also Wolliger Hütte by itself is a lovely hut offering very nice home made food, local products as well as a lovely view down to Obervellach. You could meet there in the afternoon to enjoy a typical local hut, food and hopefully a nice view!

Alternative - crossing over Auernig:

For rather experienced hikers you could take the "Jägersteig" (hunter's trail) going straight up from Mallnitz to Auernig. That's a steep trail and you need to have good shoes for that one. Then you can go down via Wolliger Hütte to join others coming from the other side.
