High above the Styrian town of Admont a rocky giant with steep limestone peaks stands out from the picturesque landscape. The Gesäuse forms the northeastern part of the Ennstaler alps in Austria.
The National Park is a symphony of rock and water, wide valleys and sunny high plains. A 110 km long hiking network leads through a habitat of rare animals and plants, along the rivers Enns and Salza and past numerous waterfalls. Since the beginnings of alpine sport the name Gesäuse is associated with exciting mountain sports.
The JUFA Hotel Schloss Röthelstein in Admont is a true resting place and is quietly situated above the world-famous Benedictine monastery at the gates of the national park.
