Gentle summer activities
Alpine experiences & walks through nature
In summer cattle runs around on the lush alpine meadows over Schladming's rooftops. The summer cable cars will conveniently and quickly take you up to higher altitudes. On walks on alpine trails you will meet sheep and cows grazing all relaxed, as well as local horses. The lovely shepherds and dairymen and women will indulge you with Styrian specialities like traditional Styrian cheese or Bauernkrapfen (farmer's doughnut). Enjoy the delicacies with views over the valley or the Hohe Tauern.
The high alpine air is beneficial and has a lot of health-enhancing effects. Take a deep breath and enjoy the views, the air, the food and the freedom of the mountains.
Nordic Walking & E-Bike
Right on your doorstep you will find the access to the nordic walking interconnected Schladming-Dachstein resort, the Alps' biggest interconnected nordic walking network. Six different walking tours of different difficulty levels, lengths and altitudes are available. Hobby hikers can also use the well sign-posted guidance system for their hikes.
If you want to overcome altitudes more easily you can rent an e-bike. From May to October a network of rentals and battery changing stations are available in the Schladming-Dachstein movelo-region. The closest rental station is located in Pichl in Almdorf Reiteralm.
The 263 kilometre long Enns cycling path is more suitable for touring bikers, but is also easily manageable on the e-bike. Find a direct access in Pichl.
Refreshment in the alpine waters with a high mineral content
Kneipp cures in one of the various alpine brooks and rivers or in one of the around 300 mountain lakes on Schladming Tauern – there is more than enough refreshment available in the summer. Enjoy hot summer's days in the crystal clear and refreshing water in the middle of the Schladming mountain world between 650 and 2,700 metres above sea level. Recharge your batteries with meditation on the lakeside or during reflective lake walks.
During your summer holiday in Schladming take a walk to all the power places in the holiday region. There is a great range of pilgrimage churches worth visiting as well as energy-rich places in Styria. All of them serve as wonderfully relaxing excursion destinations and unique nature experiences. Take a hike on the pilgrim's paths, like the “Weg des Buches” (path of the book) through “Austria's green heart”.
Meditative hiking and running
Benefit from the peace and calm in the alpine pasture region, on meadows, on an alpine lakeside and in the forests around Schladming for a hike to yourself: come to rest, unwind and have a conscious conversation with yourself, or just concentrate on your breathing. Learn how it works with the books and instructions that you find in the reading corners in your apartment.
