ACV 25 Year Celebration

The first events of the ACV took place in September 1999, so as we did for our 10th and 20th anniversaries, we will have a small celebration in a mountain hut near to Vienna.

The idea is for some of our active organisers to organise a few different activities on the Saturday to get to the hut by different ways, and some activities for Sunday too. There are also plenty of opportunities for climbing near the hut.  I will try and co-ordinate with our organisers to have some activities organised, and for these additional tripsheets will be published.

There are only 26 sleeping places in the Hubertus Haus - which limits the number of people who can stay over there for whole weekend.  I have booked all these places. If there are more members wishing to take part, there are (or may be) the following possibilities:

  • Just come for the day on Saturday, join some of our activities, and leave the same day
  • There are a couple of other huts within fairly short walking distance from the Hubertus Haus (Eicherthütte, Turmsteighütte) which according to their websites have sleeping places. People may be able to book places there (although I have not checked with either hut)

In contrast to most of our events, I will not necessarily offer places on a first-come first-served basis, but I will give priority to our more active members from the present and past for the sleeping places.  So, even if the website shows that all the places are taken and the website shows that only waiting list places are available, please do still register if you would like to join. You might still get a place. This also means that if the website shows you as having an "active" place, this might change.  It might be a difficult decision who to give the places to, so I do ask for everyone's understanding that it might not be possible to take everyone who wants to join.

I might need to ask for a deposit from people who are staying overnight (probably €10), which would not be returnable in case of a short term cancellation.

When registering, please write in the "notes" field if you intend staying overnight or just want to come for just the Saturday. Also if you have any dietary requirements please also write it, as there will probably not be the full a-la-carte menu available. 

At around the beginning of July, based on the number of registrations I have received, I will do a preliminary allocation of the sleeping places, so that people have time to try and work out other possibilities for accommodation if necessary, and/or have clarity if they have a place or not.

Update 7.7.2024: As there were significantly more registrations than there are beds available, I have sorted the entries based on several factors including the number of events registered for in recent history, if people were an active member in the past and if somebody is or was an organiser or official in the group. As mentioned originally, until now, the order of registration was not relevant for allocation of places, so I have now rearranged "participant" and "waiting list" places according to this sorting. Note that this only affects waiting list places - people on the waiting list are still welcome to join the activities during the day. 

Any future registrations will be placed on the waiting list, and if places become available in the hut, I will allocate them based on the peoples' ranking in the list.

Equipment :
For staying overnight in the hut, a "Hüttenschlafsack" (sleeping bag liner) is mandatory. For additional activities, please see other tripsheets.
Transport Details :

There are many possibilities to reach the hut by public transport and a hike. The closest train station is probably Grünberg am Schneeberg or Unter Höflein, but there are also possibilites to reach the hut from the Piesting valley on the north of the Hohe Wand.

There are also car parks at the foot of the Hohe Wand, as well as a toll road to the top of the Hohe Wand with a car park about an hour's easy walk from the hut, at the Kleinkanzelhaus.

There is even the possibility (only for people who are not able to walk there) to get a pass to drive to the hut, but this needs to be arranged in advance. This might be an interesting option for some of our former active members, who are maybe not quite as active as they used to be!
