The next inn is the Turmsteighütte, which is situated at 1,025 m above sea level, in an idyllic location surrounded by woodland and meadows. Rumour has it that the best Wiener Schnitzel on the Hohe Wand is served there.
The Hubertushaus (946 m), which is located in the direct vicinity of the Hochfallwand rock face, is popular among climbers. Those who have worked up an appetite have the possibility to not only enjoy the fabulous view, but also some tasty dumplings filled with cheese or spinach.
Experienced hikers can also head to the inns on the Grosse Kanzel via the Springlessteig path, which starts in Zweiersdorf and leads to the Hubertushaus. It is also possible to go up the Wagnersteig. That is an easy via ferrata. Visitors choosing to drive up the Hohe Wand can also reach the inns on foot, by following the Nature Park– Circular route – "In Wildenauer’s Footsteps”.
