Hiking in the Schladminger Tauern

The premier hiking region in Styria

Nature lovers, families, hikers and mountaineers are all greeted by a wealth of natural beauty, 1,000 km of hiking paths, and Styrian hospitality at Alpine huts and mountain inns. The "Wild Waters" theme hiking path in Schladming-Rohrmoos was chosen as the world's very first National Geographic Hiking Path.

Hiking at the Planai, Schladminger Tauern

The Planai is located in the midst of the Schladming-Dachstein holiday region, home to the Schladminger-Tauern mountains and the Dachstein Massif.

In barely another area do ancient rock and the Limestone Alps encounter one another so imposingly. Enthroned in the north is the Dachstein with its rugged, 1,000 m-high south face, beneath which we find the Ramsau high plateau; in the south, the peaks of the Schladminger Tauern with lush high pastures, the Klafferkessel, Giglachseen lakes, the Duisitzkar, Mirror Lakes, the Golling, Hochwildstelle and Kalkspitzen, to name but a few of the sights.

And in the middle, there is your holiday location - the Hotel Planaihof ***


Especially for hikers and free with the Sommercard

Schladming-Dachstein Sommercard included

Mountain lifts - one free ride per day, 1 x per week a free ride on the Dachstein Glacier Lift

Advantages for Hikers at Hotel Planaihof

  • Hikes directly from the hotel at 1,820 m above sea level: Here with us, you save yourself the strength-sapping climb up, and are able to enjoy the glorious mountain panorama from the minute you step out the front door. We are an ideal base for alpine hikes on the family-friendly, easy Planai Panorama Path, for a mountain tour up the Krahberg Zinken, a hike to Schladming (free return ride on the cable car) or via the challenging Planai-Höhenweg to the Preintalerhütte.
  • Hiking gear available to borrow: You can borrow rucksacks, hiking poles and thermos flasks from us.
  • Hikers' Infothèque at the hotel with hiking maps, nature guides, books to identify plants, culture guides and road maps, in other words, everything you could possibly need for your vacation.
  • Guided hikes with our guides, junior owner Andreas and senior owner Waltraud
  • Hiking tips to help you select the right tour 
  • Intro to learning the correct breathing technique and how to use hiking poles correctly.
