Mitterstein – Ramsau am Dachstein, Steiermark, Austria

The light broke and retreated through the clouds on a late winter’s afternoon. The drama between the mountains and the sky was now reaching a critical point as the sun made it’s light against the side of the Mitterstein. The giant size like – standing stone with a height of 2061 metres only to be guarded by the dominant Eselstein at 2556 metres in the background. In summer time the mountain lodge, the Gutenberghaus to the right offers accommodation and a meal for hikers and climbers.
