Hiking tips

We recommend: A hike to the Duisitzkarsee or Giglachsee or through the "Höll" along the Riesach waterfall to the Riesachsee. The ascent with the gondola or a hike along the 4 Seasons Trail to the Hochwurzen provides for wonderful holiday memories. A subsequent ride with the Mountain Go-kart offers fun for young and old.

Numerous fixed rope routes and tours can be found in our region for every age group. A children's via ferrata, three youth via ferrata and "Kalis Klettersteiggarten" also offer exciting experiences.

Our hiking tips in detailed form:

The alpine trail to Riesachsee:
Wild water opens up the Riesach waterfall. The water thunders down 140 metres over 2 steps into the Untertal. You experience the elemental force of the water in an impressive way. However, the alpine trail requires surefootedness and a head for heights - yet it is suitable for children and particularly popular. The descent via a forest road is accessible to everyone. The Obere Gfölleralm can also be easily reached without the alpine trail.

Talbach gorge:
A safe and easily accessible gorge path to the Untertal; uphill along the stream - great
Natural spectacle, many impressive places by the water.

Mushroom nature trail (children's theme trail):
From the Hochwurzen cable car valley station the mushroom nature trail winds through the forest. Local mushrooms and fungi are oversized
is shown. Playfully one learns which are edible and which are not.

Circular path to the nickel smelting furnace:
Starting from Hopfriesen / Obertal into the former core area of the Schladming mining industry.
Special tip: A visit to the nickel museum with its melting furnace.

Ursprungalm to the Giglachsee:
From the Ursprungalm to the Giglachsee. A hike with a walking time of about 1 hour, but you can also walk further to the Styrian or Lungau limestone peak.



Lake Duisitzkar:
Drive along the path to the Eschachalm, you can park here. It takes about an hour to reach Duisitzkarsee, either via the hiking trail or the forest road. The reward is a fairytale view of the circular lake and the cosy mountain huts.

Rohrmoos fairytale trail (children's theme trail):
A wonderful panoramic trail with views of Schladming and the Dachstein. A path with fairy tale figures created with great skill, ideal for the whole family with a variety of play equipment for the younger visitors.

Refreshment stop. Alpine hiking destinations: Hans-Wödl-Hütte, Höchstein.

Silberkarklamm gorge:
The Schleier waterfall can be reached via many well-secured ladders and footbridges along the Silberbach stream and past monumental boulders. There the gorge opens up to the Silberkar with the managed Silberkar hut. It takes about an hour to walk from the car park to the Silberkar hut, and the difference in altitude is about 150 metres.
