The Christlhaus is located in the sunny 30 km long Raurisertal in the village of Bucheben on the Alte Buchebenstrasse. The Christlhaus is at an altitude of 1100 meter at the edge of National Park Hohe Tauern with a fantastic view on the Goldberggruppe with its 3000 + meter high peaks like Hohe Sonnblick, Schareck, Herzog Ernst. The water with freshwater trout of the Krumltalbach flows into the fen in front of the Christlhaus. The Krumltal is one of the side valleys of the Rauristal and can be reached by a steep path in the beginning. A beautiful scenery with a lot of wildlife. Between water falls, rocks and alpine pastures the Kruml brook brings you directly to the birds of Prey of the alps. In summer times there are between 60- 80 griffon vultures, which spend their summer vacation in the valley of vultures. In 1986, the Rauris valley was selected as the site in which to reintroduce the bearded vulture to the Alps this year will see the final release of bearded vultures into the wild, along with smaller animals which have lived in the Hohe Tauern for centuries. Look out for imposing Bearded Vultures or once the snow melts, free-roaming marmots. The Raurisertal is also one of the few Tauern valleys to be a site of continuous settlement. In the middle ages the Raurisertal came to wealth with the gold mine activities at Kolm Saigurn at the end of the valley and the important north-south trade route via the Hoch Törl, the Grossglockner pass. You still find traces of this prosperous period in the valley and on the mountains.

There is a strong relation of nature and Cultural heritage between the National park Hohe Tauern and the people of the Raurisertal. The water with freshwater trout of the Krumltalbach flows into the fen in front of the Christlhaus. A beautiful wooden house located in the Rauristal in the village of Bucheben - Austria.

Het Christlhaus ligt in het zonnige, 30 km lange, Raurisertal in het dorpje Bucheben aan de Alte Buchebenstrasse. Deze berghütte ligt op 1100 meter hoogte, aan de rand van het National Park Hohe Tauern met een fantastisch uitzicht op de 3000 meter hoge toppen van de Goldberggruppe met o.a. de Hohe Sonnblick, Schareck en de Herzog Ernst. Het water met forellen van de Krumltalbach stroomt in het vennetje voor het huis. De Krumltal is één van de zijdalen van het Raurisertal. Te bereiken via een tamelijk steil begin over een brede verder makkelijke weg, naar een romantisch dal, met veel wild zoals marmotten, gemsen en baardgieren. De baardgier is een bijna uitgestorven giersoort die men weer opnieuw in het wild is uitgezet. Aan het einde van het dal bevindt zich een mooie waterval. Het Raurisertal kende in de middeleeuwen een grote bloeitijd, met de goudmijnen en de noord-zuid handelsroute door het Seidlwinkeltal over de Gross Glockner pas. Nog steeds zijn er overal sporen van die bloeitijd te vinden.
