Summer - Active holiday in Schladming

Hiking - Nature experience

The mountain world of the Schladming-Dachstein Region is a real paradise for hikers - and we certainly don't promise you too much! With the Tauern mountains in the south and the Dachstein massif in the north of Schladming, two completely different "hiking worlds" open up. The Tauern Mountains present themselves with varied valleys and many clear mountain lakes. The Dachstein massif presents itself as majestic and absolutely impressive. Imposing peaks with phenomenal views can be found here and there.

The wonderful alpine pastures with regional specialities also invite you to stop and taste the delicacies. Hiking is the perfect time-out for body and soul.

Climbing - high up on the rock

You can climb high on the 26 via ferratas in the Schladming-Dachstein Region. 22 of them are in Ramsau am Dachstein (7 km). Imposing steep faces, craggy rocks and a view that stretches beyond the borders of Austria. The via ferratas in the region are suitable for all levels. Even children can try out the via ferrata on the Ramsau Sattelberg and an attractive offer on the rock has also been created for young people.

There are also other via ferratas on the Reiteralm and on the Stoderzinken. Those who need support or further training are in good hands with the local climbing guides.

E-bike, mountain bike & downhill

In the Schladming-Dachstein Region everything revolves around biking. Cycle the most beautiful places in the region in a very relaxed way with a little support from your e-bike. For those who prefer something a little "crisper", there is a wide range of challenging tours available - embedded in the exceptionally beautiful landscape of the Enns Valley. You can start your cycling pleasure directly from your holiday home. The scenic Ennsradweg R7 also runs in the immediate vicinity of our house. There are rental and charging stations for e-bikes all over the region and also a wide range of tours including a map, tips for stops and excursions.

If you want to feel the adrenaline, you can whiz down the Planai on your bike - trails in various levels of difficulty challenge the bravest.

Swimming, Rafting & Canoeing

What could be better than refreshing yourself with the cool water in summer? There are some very attractive opportunities for this in the Schladming-Dachstein Region. The Schladming adventure pool with indoor and outdoor areas offers numerous opportunities for sports, games, fun and relaxation. Easy to reach, as is the Pichl bathing lake with a large playground and sports field for the whole family. The Haus adventure pool is small but very nice - especially popular for families with smaller children. The Aich bathing lake scores with a huge sunbathing area, climbing tower and kayak school, and at Ramsau Beach you can combine swimming and a phenomenal Dachstein panorama.

A great change for the adventurous is a rafting tour or a canoeing course on the Enns. From Aich, the Enns also becomes calmer and is therefore also perfect for older children for a great experience on the water.

Family time is premium time

Boring? We don't know this word at all in the region. Especially for families, the offer is extremely diverse. In summer, for example, the Planai is transformed into the highest playground in Styria. It's great what there is to discover here. It can easily happen that you want to take the gondola up to the summit a second time to play, discover and have fun again. All this is free of charge, the gondola ride is free with the Sommercard. The Reiteralm is also all about families in summer - little bikers in particular are very welcome here to let off steam on trails suitable for children. Whizzing down and being brought back up with conveyor belts - ideal for little bikers.

Those who want to explore the natural and animal world in detail are in good hands on Kali's children's nature trail in Ramsau. Little explorers and discoverers will get their money's worth here. And mum and dad are guaranteed to learn a thing or two too! Summit experience and guessing fun included!

Mega - also for older kids - the Rittisberg with Rittisberg Coaster, Flyline, high ropes course, Segway, archery and swimming lake Ramsau Beach!
Many attractions for free with the Sommercard!

Time to discover something new - excursions

Schladming's central location also offers many opportunities for excursions. With the Sommercard, for example, admission to the museums is free. The Trautenfels Museum with its imposing location and view over the Enns Valley, onto the Grimming and into the small village of Pürgg, the Kripperl of Styria, is really great. The museum offers an impressive show about life in the Ennstal and also changing high-quality exhibitions. Highly recommended. - approx. 40 km

The Benedictine monastery of Admont with the world's largest monastery library is also internationally renowned. 70,000 volumes on display and a breathtakingly beautiful ambience with frescoes and marble floors. The monastery also offers very diverse museum areas and has made a name for itself in the field of contemporary art in recent years. Impressive and a clear recommendation for a visit. - approx. 70 km

Hohenwerfen and Eisriesenhöhle - two attractions in the village of Werfen. One is the mighty castle that towers over the Salzach valley. Here you can immerse yourself in the Middle Ages. The lively castle courtyard, the view and the exciting, eventful history are well worth discovering. Today Hohenwerfen Castle is also home to a bird of prey station, whose feathered inhabitants show off their skills at a bird of prey show.

Opposite is the Eisriesenhöhle (giant ice cave) - it is like diving into another world. Inside the mountain are metre-high layers of ice that look like a fantasy world. Very worth seeing excursion destination. - 50 km
