Touching the sky on the Dachstein: walking and skiing at three
altitudes– from the plateau via the Alpine pastures to the glacier.
Everybody is welcome here – from snow shoe walkers and skiiers to ski competitors.
The Dachstein-Tauern Region is one of the five biggest skiing locations in Austria. Ski Alpin, Nordic ski, snow shoe walking and romantic winter walks are just a few of the abundance of activities you can enjoy in this region around Schladming.
Special provision for families with children make this region the ideal destination for young and old. Big events such as Schladming’s world cup night slalom attract even more spectators and ski fans. For the holiday maker keen on sport, everything you expect of a holiday in the mountains is available here. As well as the classic sports like walking, biking, tennis and golf, there is, of course, paragliding and climbing.
And water sports too play their full part, with the adventure of rafting, canyoning and hydro-speed. A cornucopia of opportunities for walkers, bikers and activity holiday- makers guarantee an eventful stay in a breath-taking environment.
The high pastures and ski huts are open until the end of October and at all three altitudes they invite you to drop in for a while. And the perfect place for a family holiday as well is the children’s ‚activity mountain’, with climbing facilities for children and a trail in search of old legends and fairy stories.more about this holiday destination
