The Herrgottschnitzerhaus

Its history and more

Our alpine hut is over 100 years old and "Thank God" has hardly changed except for a few extentions. The Herrgottschnitzerhaus is an old, snug country cottage with a wonderful lookout over the Lake Fertő. We have three separate guest rooms (one of them with TV) and a terrace. The hut offers 80 seats, the terrace does about 70. In the dormitory, we have about 45 beds, divided into four rooms.


Exhibitions and openings

We provide our guest rooms as a gallery for artists where they could show their works. The exhibitions with or without opening take 4-6 weeks. Get more information about our service and free dates.

This is the most beautiful and shortest way from Dreistetten, starting next to the parking area and the Cave Unicorn (Einhornhöle). To reach the Herrgottschnitzerhaus, follow the blue signs along this easy-to-climb and secure steep.



(moderately steep)

Follow the red signs right of the Drobil-Steig. The Path Herrgottschnitzer passes by the Drobil-Steig in a left curve.
