With the impressive Dachstein massif to the north of the river Enns and the breathtaking mountains of the Schladminger Tauern in the south, various hiking and touring areas open up in the Schladming-Dachstein region. There are hikes varying in difficulty – from easy and leisurely to steep and challenging. The wide-ranging hiking network guides you through green valleys, over historical waterways and the large mountain peaks. But one thing all experiences in nature have to offer: they give you strength and provide room to breathe. One of the highlights is hiking in autumn, when the forests and meadows in the Schladming-Dachstein region are presenting themselves in colourful autumn shades.

Ready, set, go – at a fast pace, it’s uphill, altitude metre by altitude metre. Trail running is the new off-road running trend. In narrow mountain trails, over stones, roots and scree, the routes always lead uphill – and at the end of your run its back down to the valley. There are also several designated trails around Schladming and Rohrmoos. Such as the challenging Schladminger Tauern Trail, which leads 45 km through uneven terrain, covering over 4,400 metres in altitude both up and downhill. Beginners can start with the Rohrmoos running loop of around 8 km or try the beautiful Hochwurzen Trail, on which there is a crisp 760 metres in altitude to overcome.
It doesn’t always have to be a summit. Numerous leisurely walking and Nordic walking paths start in Rohrmoos and Schladming.
At top speed down to the valley with the Stoderzinken zipline. From an altitude of 1.600 m fly with a zipline at speeds of 115 km per hour. Pure action!
Swimming pools and lakes
Hiking boots off and swim suite on. The numerous pools and lakes of the region guarantee water fun to the extreme.
