The Ramsau trail is an easy skating trail. The starting point is opposite the entrance to the Postalm-Stadl, where parking is also available. The 2.5 km long trail serves as a so-called "dog trail". During the Christmas holidays and in February, the trail is reserved for horse-drawn sleigh rides.

Author’s recommendation

A subsequent stop in the open huts rounds off the visit to the Postalm.
