Access paths to the hut:

From Brunnental:
We take the car on the B138, turn and go Steyrling (6.3 kilometers) down to the Brunnental. On one of the numerous car we hold and climb on to Steyrerhütte (1,400 meters above sea level). The Brunnental is romantically situated, green, wide valley and the starting point for many hikes. Here are the summer home and the Forest Service of the Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe, known for its annual event "picnic". We take the road through a shady Katzengraben, Road No. 433rd An artificial, wide gravel stream bed (for heavy rain) with us the path. After all, we have to the hut about 700 meters altitude difference to be overcome. There are so many beautiful plants to see along the way and we will be happy ever again stand in order to photograph them. After 2 / 3 of the climb you cross a forest road, the land is now forested and interspersed with fine gravel. It is now below the Hochkogel (1,193 m) and a beautiful Almboden spreads out before you. Butterflies, and colorful meadows with a variety of bluebells, giant mullein, fragrant thyme, aconite and many other plants can stay one stand again. After a left bend, the trail leads from the shadows of the trees again to the right. Everything is well signposted. A few hundred meters, it is now in the sun up. The road has been widened, and probably riddled with debris. Here you can find the perfect season to the slopes sweet strawberries. Now it's back into the forest. So slowly we will open the forest to look at the Dead Mountains. A rare Türkenbundlilie grow hidden at the roadside. At a crossroads, a plaque hangs, it is reminiscent of a group of children who in 1943 found there in a blizzard to die. Right leads the way to Kirchdorfer Hut (Maple Alm). Here one can still recognize the impact of the huge storms of late. Finally, the Steyrerhütte is in sight after two hours.
