What can I experience in Schladming-Dachstein

"High up on the Dachstein, where the eagle dwells ..." – this is what the beginning of the Styrian national anthem sounds like. And not without reason: the Schladming-Dachstein region is one of the most impressive in the green heart of Austria. The towering southern wall of the Dachstein and the Schladming Tauern mountains opposite invite you to climb and hike as well as to enjoy wonderful skiing and snowboarding. However, the region's offer is much more diversified than you would assume at first glance. With a holiday at the Falkensteiner Hotel Schladming, you can experience activities at all altitudes!

Dachstein Glacier

A day on the glacier is anything but bland: An ascent on the panoramic cable car, the view from the unique Sky Walk, and then the extraordinary ice figures in the Ice Palace.

Refreshing Water

In addition to exciting water hikes and romantic boat trips, numerous swimming pools and clear bathing lakes invite you to cool off on hot days.

Away from the slopes

Over 282 well-kept hiking trails invite you to snowshoe hikes, and up to 40 double horse-drawn teams trot their way through untouched winter landscapes in Ramsau am Dachstein alone.
