Fun, adventure and play are waiting for the kids on top of the Planai in Schladming. The 1.5 km long loop trail for families starts at the mountain terminal of Planai cable-car and takes you and your loved ones to giant slides, climbing towers, swings and to a small water world.

Planai mascot Hopsi already greets the guests at the valley terminal and invites into his world full of adventures. With a bit of luck you might catch one of the "Hopsi gondolas" for your ride up or down the mountain. All-in-all there 6 stations are waiting for the visitors:

  • Schafalmwald (Schafalm forest)
  • Kugelbahn (ball path)
  • Schneehasen (snow bunnies)
  • Wasserwelt (water world)
  • Goldbrünnlein (golden well)
  • Bergwelt (mountain world)
  • Schladminger Kristall (Schladming crystal)

In case you need a break in-between the restaurants of Planaihof, Schladminger Hütte and Schafalm serve regional dishes.

Author’s recommendation

  • We recommend to also include a short detour to Planai summit. You can reach it within a couple of minutes.
  • Another option for a short walk is Planai Panorama trail (45 minutes to 1 hour)

Both trails are suitable for prams too!

Turn-by-turn directions

From the mountain terminal of Planai cable-car you walk downhill through Schafalm forest where the first playing equipment is waiting to be tested. Passing by Schafalm you roll down your ball (which you can get at the mountain terminal) along the ball path and walk to the Snow Bunnies. Through a small forest you then reach Hopsi's Water World. Here the World Cup Trail to Schladming branches off to the right. Also, you can make a short hike (about 20 minutes) to Lärchkogelhütte Inn.

Over mountain meadows (Hopsi's favourite ski runs in winter) and a clear forest you reach the Golden Well and Hopsi's Mountain World. Along the trail a lot more playing equipment is waiting for you!

You continue on to Planaihof Inn, where you reach Schladming Crystal and a climbing tower in the form of a wooden snowcat. Passing by "Hopsiflug" (Hopsi's flight) and the Adventure Park Planai you reach your starting point at Schladminger Hütte Inn and the mountain terminal of Planai cable-car..
