Owned by the German Alpine Association / Section Karlsbad, Karlsbaderhütte is located directly on Lake Lazerz and surrounded by the impressive Lienz Dolomites. Extended and renovated step by step, Karlsbaderhütte is an insider tip and starting point to numerous mountain sports destinations.

From Tristach sports field, you start into the mountains of the Lienz Dolomites. Follow the toboggan run to the Kreithof, then cycle on the paved road all the way to Dolomitenhütte. Past the “Dolo”, as the locals call the hut exposed in the rock, you can delve into a wild natural landscape, framed by the rugged walls and peaks of the Lienz Dolomites.

On the rough surface of the forest road, you will wind your way upwards, metre by metre, until you are in the Laserz basin. A new world opens up there: Meadows with flocks of sheep, behind them scree fields and the mighty peaks of the Lienz Dolomites with Roter Turm, Seekofel, Gamswiesenspitze, and so on. Karlsbaderhütte, the trip’s destination, is located directly at Lake Laserz, which is a popular photo opportunity with its rich blue and deep turquoise water. Likewise, the view from the hut's sun terrace towards the valley is worth a stop. Good visibility provided, you can look all the way to Großvenediger, which is flanked by many other 3000-metre-peaks. We are sure that even after two servings of Kaiserschmarrn or Tyrolean dumplings you will only reluctantly leave behind this special spot in the Lienz Dolomites and the view it provides.
