Three levels are hiked on this tour: first we move in the Dachstein massif, then on the plateau of Ramsau am Dachstein and before it goes again slightly uphill to Rohrmoos, we hike through Schladming. This stage of the hiking route "From Glacier to Wine", rich in views and scenery, thus leads us from the white limestone rock of the Dachstein to the green mountains of the Schladminger Tauern - or at least to the idyllically situated village of Rohrmoos at the foot of the Schladminger Tauern. In between: the historic town of Schladming, which boasts historic town walls and architecture as well as modern buildings and innovations.

Ramsau am Dachstein and Schladming are the two largest and most famous tourist resorts in Styria. The village of Ramsau with its location on a high plateau from 1,100 to 1,700 m above sea level, nestled against the southern walls of the Dachstein massif, still shows a very rural and idyllic side, which impresses with an almost endless range of activities. Here is not only the cradle of via ferrata with a total of 19 iron trails or one of the largest cross-country skiing centers in the Alpine region, but also a special culture of life, which for many of us today awakens true longing. The historic town of Schladming with its numerous major sporting events - from the Alpentour Mountain Bike Trophy to the Nightrace in January - is now one of the largest tourist communities in Austria and also offers an incredible range of activities for holidaymakers.

Author’s recommendation

Stay overnight in Schladming or Rohrmoos in a business that is a Sommercard business. By staying overnight, you receive the Sommercard, with which you can take the ascent with the Gipfelbahn Hochwurzen free of charge.

Tip: In the spring of 2018, in the course of a casting, a jury and the readers of a major Austrian daily newspaper chose Martina Traisch from the Enns Valley and Manfred Polansky from the Mürz Valley as 2 "super hikers" who hiked the north and south routes in the summer. You can read about their experiences and adventures at From ideal photo spots to hidden wine cellars in mountain huts. Do you want to follow in the footsteps of Martina and Manfred and also become a "super hiker"? It's easy: Register at and then post your experiences, videos and comments along the hiking route "From Glacier to Wine" - regardless of whether you hike the entire route or just one section. Every 5 stages also beckons a small reward!

Turn-by-turn directions

At the beginning of this stage on the hiking route "From Glacier to Wine", we take trail number 616, which leads steeply downhill via the idyllically situated Lärchbodenalm (Tel. +43 3687 81743) to the high plateau of Ramsau am Dachstein. We are accompanied on this descent by the beautiful view down to the plateau as well as to the opposite Schladminger Tauern, which await us on our next stages. Arrived at the plateau, we keep to the right after the Hotel Feistererhof to cross meadows and past beautifully situated houses and farms to the Eiskarlift, a small drag lift. Here the hiking trail makes a turn to the left to lead us directly into the center of Ramsau am Dachstein.

The further path now leads us towards the ski jump and cross-country stadium, where every year in December the Nordic World Cup of the FIS is hosted and the best Nordic combined athletes in the world compete. On the west side of the ski jump, we now head uphill through shady forests to the Kulmberg. The further way leads us to the organic farm Frienerhof with its beautiful herb garden and the idyllic location opposite the Schladminger Tauern. From here the comfortable descent to the town of Schladming takes place, which is a welcome stopover or even stage destination, because either on foot or by hiking bus we can ascend or ride the next morning to the Hochwurzen cable car, which takes us into the Schladminger Tauern. In Schladming, the path first leads us along the Enns River to finally reach the western end of the main square via Dachsteingasse. Here is now not hiking, but strolling announced. Numerous stores and cafés invite you to shop, enjoy and linger. Worth a visit: the town museum, which gives us an insight into the eventful history of the mountain town of Schladming.

The further way leads us to the entrance of the Talbachklamm, which connects Schladming with Rohrmoos. The path through the gorge is popular with guests and locals alike for a leisurely stroll, a run or even as a cycling route. However, after a few meters we leave the gorge path to the right to finally reach the center of Rohrmoos. From here we have another beautiful view back to today's varied stage before we head into the middle of the Schladminger Tauern on our next stage.

Proper backpack packing makes many things easier: Pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within reach in a side pocket. All the things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top. An emergency kit, including blister plasters, belongs in every rucksack and it is always advisable to dress in layers.
