The Mooslehenalm in Großarl
From hotel to hut
The Mooslehenalm in Großarl offers a contrast to the gourmet dinners, luxury suites and beauty treaments on offer at the GROSSARLER HOF. Perched high in the mountains, this traditional alpine refuge offers a warm welcome and hearty food. The hut can be reached on foot or by bike. There is also the option of staying the night at the hut and rising early the next morning to watch the sun rise behind the mountains.
Food & drink
Surrounded by lush meadows and thick forests, the Mooslehenalm boasts not only wonderful views of the surrounding landscape but also some of the best food our region has to offer. Sweet or savoury, hearty or healthy – the selection of food on offer caters quite literally for all tastes. Sit down, tuck in and enjoy the views stretching along the Großarltal Valley all the way to the Hohe Tauern National Park, home to some of Austria's highest mountains.
The Mooslehenalm - finish line & base campShow more
Just half an hour from the Himmelsknoten car park, the Mooslehenalm is the ideal for short walks and family excursions. Guests who want to hike further into the mountains can use it as a base camp for more ambitious adventures to the summits of nearby mountains such as the Schuhflicker and the Höllwand. The Mooslehenalm can also be accessed by bike from the GROSSARLER HOF. The first section of the ride leads through the village of Großarl itself before the trail winds its way 600 vertical metres up to the hut, where a well-earned drink and snack await hungry bikers.
Overnight stays at the MooslehenalmShow more
There are few experiences more memorable than spending a night high in the mountains. The Mooslehenalm offers guests the opportunity to do precisely that thanks to its small selection of rooms on the first floor. We recommend rising early the next morning to see the sun rise behind the mountains. And if the weather is bad, there is nothing quite like hearing the wind howl and the rain beat against the windows as you are tucked up warm inside. Sometimes luxury can be found in the simplest of things. In the evenings there is a selection of traditional Austrian dishes on offer, while in the mornings a healthy and hearty breakfast buffet provides all the energy you need for a day in the mountains.

Once a year the bike trail up to the Mooslehenalm hut hosts the Mooslehen Challenge. This race held each August is open to everyone – riders of all ages and fitness levels on both e-bikes and standard mountain bikes. Once everyone has arrived at the top there is a BBQ and tombola where all participants are in with a chance of winning.
