Summer activities in Schladming

Just as much as the winter season in Austria is associated with skiing and snowboarding, the summer season is associated with hiking and mountainbiking. However Schladming is offering more than just this. Hier you will find a broad range of activities, which makes Schladming a perfect fit for the ones who wants to experience an active holiday no matter traveling with family, friends, partner or on your own.

The versatile hiking trails in Schladming-Dachstein offers the ideal opportunities for both young and old to explore the surroundings. From simple trails to longer and more advanced ones. Along the trails there are some very good and typical austrian guest houses where they serve local specialities, and some of them even has their own produce on side. A hiking trail, which we can highly recommend is the "Wilde Wasser". This trail takes you to the Riesacher waterfall, which is the highest waterfall in Steiermark. The nature is incredibly beautiful here.

Only a 15 minutes drive from Hotel Planai in Schladming is the Dachstein Glacier, which is the perfect activity for the ones who can not get enough of the snow. The area is on the UNESCO list of world heritage. Here you will experience a breathtaking view and an experience that you will never forget. Try to walk over the highest suspension bridge in Austria, or the "Dachstein Sky Walk" partly constructed in glas - in other words not for those afraid of hights.

A summer holiday is not complete without a refreshing swim when it gets too hot in the sun. Close to Schladming you will find 2 great lakes, and you can swim in both of them. Here you will also find activities like bouncy castles, play grounds, tennis, beachvolley and football.
