Origins in the mining era

Already in the heyday of mining in the Schladminger Tauern (circa 1300 to 1500), the Duisitzkarseehütte – like the surrounding alpine huts – was used as accommodation for miners. Since the 17th century, shares of the Duisitzkaralm have been owned by the Stocker family, Abelhof in Rohrmoos near Schladming. These shares also include the Duisitzkarseehütte, whose management history began in 1949.


  • 1949: Maria Gerhardter-Royer (“Starchl Maridl”) starts as a dairymaid with a bar.
  • 1958 to 1964: Franz and Hilda Schütter (House Wieseneck, Rohrmoos)
  • 1965: Hermann Simonlehner (Schladming)
  • 1966: not managed
  • 1967 to 1973: Hermann and Cilli Zechmann (Untertal)
  • 1974 to 1975: Franz Reiter (vulgo Gassner, Ramsau)
  • 1976 to 2012: Fritz and Hermi Lettner-Reiter(Haus Heimat, Obertal)
  • 2013 until 2016: Claudia Wieser
  • since 2017: Susanna Wieser(Seiterhof, Obertal)


Until 1963, all goods necessary for the management of the hut had to be carried by “Buckelkraxe” (back stretcher) from the Eschachalm to the Duisitzkarsee hut. This strenuous work came to an end in 1963 with the construction of a material ropeway. The cable car had an intermediate stop at the “Saghütten”. From the Saghüttenalm (managed by the family Hutegger vulgo Alpsteger, Rohrmoos) fresh cow’s milk was transported daily to the valley. In 1997 the construction of a forest road from the Eschachalm to the Duisitzkar began. Half of the path was built in the first year, and it was completed in 1998. The material ropeway was eventually removed.


The actual meaning of the name “Duisitzkar” cannot be determined exactly. The name opens up various possibilities of interpretation. Its history of development is well comprehensible: In the “Waldtomus” of 1760, an inventory of the forest stock at the time of Maria Theresia, there is mention of the “Toysetz Albm”. The Franziszeische Kataster from 1824 refers to the area as “Toisitzkohr”. This name was common until about 1960, when it was replaced by the name “Duisitzkar”. The change in spelling is probably closely related to the spread of the first trail maps.
