The ascent to Stuhleralm starts from the carpark of Budam near Wallhorn. First follow the road to the district of Budam where you get to a walkway. It will lead you across pastures through Großes Nilltal Valley and up to Nilljochhütte, 1990 metres above sea level. From here on, the last part of the hiking tour is an alpine driveway that leads to Stuhleralm.
Stuhleralm provides the atmosphere of genuine mountain lodge in the heart of Hohe Tauern National Park. Moreover, it serves as stop on the way to various other mountain lodges like Bonn-Matreier-Hütte, Gottschaunalm or Bodenalm.
