Description

The Schladming-Dachstein region, located in central Austria, is a great location to explore if you’re looking for a respite in nature that is both diverse and accessible.

Hiking options range from family walks to alpine tours and summit conquests. Families with strollers and mountaineers alike will revel in the rewarding trails and scenic landscape.

Three popular long-distance hiking trails are accessible from this region, such as the Styrian hiking route “From Glacier to Wine”, Panoramaweg 100, and Dachstein Rundwanderweg.

This area is certainly worth checking out, especially with its more than 50 huts, around 1000 kilometers of marked trails, and myriad water features like picturesque waterfalls and springs.

Guided hike through the Notgasse, a UNESCO World Natural Heritage. The Notgasse, located at the foot of the Stoderzinken, connects Gröbming to alpine pastures at higher elevations.
