UPDATE for 2022-11

Good News and Bad News.

The pandemic is not over. As in the last two years, we are expecting measures such as restrictions on events, restrictions on the number of participants, etc.
We don't know today (November) what we will face at the end of January. What we do know is that there are usually caps on the number of guests, and heavy fines for unregistered events, possibly also travel restrictions and quarantine regulations.

Tauerntreffen Future and Financial Situation

TThe Edelraute lease ends in April 2022 and we don't know who will continue to run the hut and whether we can hold the meeting there in 2023. We also have to pick up all the things stored there and store them somewhere, then hopefully bring them back up for the next meeting. Or somewhere else. At the same time we will have zero income from meeting fees in 2022 (details below).

We are therefore asking everyone who would like to continue to go to to a future Tauerntreffen to make a donation NOW. Details are provided in the invitation email or on request.

No Event, but ...

If the regulations in force at the time allow it, we can still spend a few days on the Edelraute.
This is NOT an event. There are no patches or stickers of a meeting, no rental WC or barriers at the car park, no ride-outs, no official control rides, no meeting registration on site, no toll payment through us, etc.


Camping will be possible and the procedure is exactly the same as for a room night. The costs are the same as for the workshop camp. The rules are the same as always, regarding campfires etc.

2G? 2G+?

All Covid 19 restrictions then in force must be followed. On-site inspection will be carried out by Edelrautehütte staff (If necessary, supported by the local authorities.

Timetable and Procedure

The procedure is almost the same as before: From the responses I receive, the reservation list for the Edelraute will be compiled and further updated by mid-December. This will be sent to Edelraute on 15.01. 2022.

New Access Road Tolling System?

In the course of the winter, the toll system for the access road will be changed.
What is to come: No cash payment, payment only online or by card, number plate recognition, numerical limitation of vehicles.
Costs and modalities are currently unclear. It is currently not possible to absorb the costs via a meeting fee.

Reservation of Overnight Stays

I will accept the reservations on behalf of the Edelraute hut. No reservation fee, we try to survive this on donations ...

  1. Reservation is only available for vaccinated or recovered persons ("2G") with an official document to state that.
  2. Prior transmission of the corresponding proof in machine-readable form is required (European certificate with QR code as PDF). These documents are used by me exclusively for filtering the reservation requests and are subsequently deleted, i.e. they are not forwarded to Edelraute.
    The proofs are to be carried along and will be checked when checking in at the Edelraute, this is for workshop dorm and camping as well.


We ask you to cancel your reservation if you can not come, to make room for substitutes.

Day guest or one-night stay?

Since we are only normal guests without an event bonus, the day guest status does not apply. Anyone can ride up and consume something in the Edelraute under then applicable conditions. No reservation is required for this.



In normal times we are be pleased to invite a fine selection of winter motorcycling enthusiasts to our meeting.

For taking part, you technically have to do the following:
By end of January, drive to the middle of the Austrian province Styria.
Then handle a mountain pass with a 16% maximum uphill grade, plus the following private toll road up to the inn - this is another 5 km mountain road, being a popular sledging track for local people.
Depending on the weather the track may be icy, full of tyre tracks or some deep snow sections.
In our experience, snow chains or a powered side car will help. Some people did it with good winter tires only - but they definitely knew how to drive :)

Please do not expect a perfectly prepared snow road - this only may be there on Thursday or maybe Friday. We had people riding home because they could not make it up the toll road - despite they had studs and winter tyres. Others have burned their clutch - they had new Staudacher chains but not enough riding skills to get into first gear full speed.
The toll road is long and steep, and not for first-timers - even if some people make it look very easy to ride up.
Without proper tried and tested winter equipment and some practise your long trip to the Steiermark may end in disaster. We even had people break their shoulder or ribs when falling over.
Improvised snow chains or traction aids are just that. They may keep up a few hundert meters, then slip around your tyres and damage something. Ropes do not grip on ice.
We may be able to give you and your luggage a ride up, your vehicle will have to stay down there.

It is all about winter riding, talking motorbike stuff, and enjoying the great landscape around. There is no extra entertainment, music, fireworks or such. But there will be lots of breathtaking surroundings..
All participants are required to behave as guests (we are, really) in a civilized way.

The Spot
Our meeting place is right in the Austrian Central Alps region, close to the tree line. There is a fair chance of having snowy conditions.

It is possible to camp, if you do choose not to sleep indoors. But due to the alpine setting this is only for experienced winter campers with the right equipment and spirit.

Round Trips
Do your own round trips on Friday or Saturday. Some route info is provided from our details page after you registered.

The inn has only limited space. This is true for rooms as well as for camping or dorm beds. So you need a reservation to stay overnight.
