Austria is the ideal country for the mountain walker. There are many hundreds of mountain huts linked by waymarked paths. Numerous summits over 2000m and even 3000m, can be reached by walkers, many by simply walking, others by easy scrambling or on easy snow. Suitably equipped parties of three can include some glaciers as described in this book. This is a revised edition of Cecil Davies' classic book. It is an introduction to 25 mountain groups with detailed descriptions of 98 walks varying from half a day to a good week. Using this guide as a starting point you could soon work out additional walks in each group. The huts of the Alpine Clubs are mostly wardened and meals are usually provided, thus it is not necessary to carry a heavy pack. The German and Austrian Alpine Clubs have over 500 mountain huts in Austria, linked by an incomparable system of hundreds of miles of footpaths. There are as many more mountain huts run by other clubs or privately. The vast majority of the walks can be undertaken by anyone competent to walk on British hills.
