Our tips for your walking & hiking enjoyment on Hauser Kaibling:


Multiple-day tours

For pure walking pleasure, head off on a multi-day hike. You can look forward to an exciting experience on a well-supported network.

  • Hiking without luggage: let your hosts take the load. As you walk, your luggage will move to your next stopover. When you arrive, your rucksack will be in your room. Each overnight stay offers half-board, so you can put your feet up at the end of a long day walking.
  • Signposted trails: all walking trails and forest roads are well-signposted, so you will always find the right path. 
  • Public transport: trains and buses by ÖBB and walking buses take you to and from the hiking areas during summer season. You can also take the Hochwurzen, Planai and Hauser Kaibling gondolas.

With the Schladming-Dachstein SummerCard, you can use the gondolas and regional public buses free, for it is included in the SummerCard. (One round-trip on the Dachstein glacier gondola per week).

Hiking equipment

For walking and hiking in Styria’s Schladming-Dachstein region, skid-proof hiking boots are the most important piece of equipment. It is also worth packing waterproof clothing and something to drink. The Schladming-Dachstein hiking map and the Schladming-Dachstein walking guide will help you find your way.


Thanks to the reliable mobile network, you will have a phone connection almost everywhere in the mountains. There are only a few spots with weaker signal.
