Unforgettable impressions in the mountains

Hiking in Styria

Around the Dachstein mountains, there are endless walking and hiking paths waiting to be discovered by enthusiastic summer guests. The regional Schladming-Dachstein walking guide gives you the necessary overview of the various hiking tours.


Multiple-day tours

Whoever is looking for pure hiking pleasure, might chose a multiple-day hike. Here are some services and facilities, facilitating the undertaking and making it an untroubled experience:

  • Hiking without luggage: During your walk, the respective hosts of the accommodation where you are spending the night are looking after the transportation of your luggage. When you arrive, your rucksack is already in your room. The overnight stays are offered with half-board, so you don't have to leave your accommodation in case you are tired from walking.
  • Signposted trails: all walking paths and forest roads are well-signposted. They guarantee to always find the right way. 
  • Public transport: trains and buses by the ÖBB, and walking buses take you to the hiking areas an back during summer season. For ascending and descending you can also take the gondola lifts  of the Hochwurzen, Planai and Hauser Kaibling.

With the Schladming-Dachstein SummerCard, you can use these gondola liftes as well as the regional public buses for free, for it is included in the SummerCard. (Ascend and descend with the Dachstein glacier gondola lift once a week).

Hiking equipment

When walking and hiking in the Schladming-Dachstein region in Styria, skidproof hiking boots are the most important piece of equipment. Additionally, we recommend to bring waterproof clothing to slip over in case of rain and something to drink. The Schladming-Dachstein hiking map and the Schladming-Dachstein walking guide facilitate orientation.


Thanks to the well-developed mobile network, you will have a phone-connection almost everywhere in the mountains. There are only a few spots, where you won't get a signal.
