SUMMER HOLIDAYS IN THE SCHLADMING MOUNTAINS
Hiking, mountaineering and summer lifts in Schladming
1000 km of marked hiking paths and more than 50 mountain huts. 45 km of running and Nordic-walking trails. Sound pretty big? It is! In our opinion, the only thing that tops this offer is the amazing scenery. For example, when the south face of the Dachstein is reflected in the aptly named Mirror Lake, with pink rhododendron in full bloom before it … When you sit on the summit of the Stoderzinken (elev. 2048 m) and humbly enjoy the sunset. Or quite simply, when you take a break and dangle your feet in the babbling waters of an icy-cold mountain stream.
If you prefer to overcome the initial climb without investing any effort, we suggest taking advantage of the summer lifts. Aboard the Hochwurzen summit lift, even the ride up is a memorable experience in its own right: From the glass gondolas, you can enjoy the view of the mighty Dachstein massif. On the Planai, in contrast, you will be greeted by the highest playground in Styria. While the Reiteralm Preunegg Jet will carry you up to a true hiking paradise: From here, you can make a beeline to Mirror Lake and the Untersee, while the “Silent Waters” theme path captivates with countless play opportunities in and around the water as well as oases of complete tranquility. If you are in the mood for a little more action, you might wish to tackle the mountain bike trails, the Reiteralm Junior Trails (also suitable for children on push bikes!) or the Franzi via ferrata (a fixed-cable climb rated C/D). The mountain lifts are included with the Schladming Dachstein Card.
Adventure Holidays in Styria: via ferratas, rock climbing
A drive taking roughly 30 minutes will bring you from your chalet or apartment to Ramsau. A true Eldorado for climbers and via ferrata enthusiasts. 22 of the 26 fixed-cable climbs total in the Schladming-Dachstein Region are located in Ramsau. 4 climbs designed especially for young children and teens as well as Kali’s Via Ferrata Garden are ideal for youngsters excited to learn the climbing basics. The oldest via ferrata in the Eastern Alps leads to the top of the Dachstein – known as the “Randkluft”. If you would like to enjoy a first taste of adventure sports, we suggest contacting one of our local mountain guides.
Holidays on 2 wheels: mountain biking and cycling
Schladming-Dachstein also has a lot to offer those of you who love leaning into your pedals. With opportunities for “Sunday cyclists”, E-bikers as well as mountain bikers. For MTBers in particular, we highly recommend spending a timeout at Alpenchalets Reiteralm: As of quite recently, new trails have been created practically right outside the front door of our Alpenchalets Reiteralm. With 15 kilometers and 2 levels of difficulty. On the Planai, you will discover Bikepark 2.0 with 35 km of trails, a flowline for all abilities and the Jump Line with 99 (!) separate jumps.
Golfing in Schladming-Dachstein
Four 18-hole golf courses are located between the Dachstein and Schladminger Tauern. Golfclub Radstadt, Golfclub Schladming-Dachstein, Golf & Countryclub Schloss Pichlarn and Golf & Landclub Ennstral-Weissenbach all promise golfing experiences at the highest level – amid a magnificent natural setting.
Schladming-Dachstein Sommercard included
