Schladming - Centred - Single or Multi-Centred Self Guided walking holiday - Click here to find out more about Self Guided walking holidays 

The Area

Your Austrian base is Schladming in the Enns valley, the Enns is a lively river which flows east to join the Danube. The Enns valley is dominated to the north by the stark limestone mountains, of which Dachstein (the ‘Roof Stone’) is the largest. To the south are the peaks of the Schladminger Tauern. There is a network of post buses that run from the main valley either onto terraces such as Ramsau, or linking small villages or of greater importance to walkers routes will take you down side valleys deep into the mountains. All the transport with Planai and RVB buses in the area are free with a Summer Card, also cable cars and most local museums and attractions, including the cable car ride to Dachstein Summit.

The Centre

Schladming is in the main town of the valley and is in the province of Steiermark, sometimes rendered in English as Styria. It has a compact historical centre dating back 700 years with all urban facilities including banks, restaurants, shops, a hospital and swimming pool. Outside the skiing season it retains a calm, genteel ambience.  

The Walking

The walking is quite superb with a great variation of types. You have the opportunity to walk down small valleys alongside fast flowing rivers, through gorges with a high suspension bridge to traverse, gentle alpine walking between villages, or ‘classic’ high alpine walks. You can take the cable car to Dachstein at 2700m and for the adventurous descend across a glacier. Local authorities are making a determined effort to attract more walkers and the result is a network of well-signed paths of all levels of difficulty.  

Guided walking

Every week there are guided walks four days a week of different levels, including the Glacier Hike, all are free but subject to minimum numbers.   Details available upon request.

Walk Grading

Self guided - Easy, Moderate & Challenging.
