"Bergschnuppern" - Tasting the Mountains

You always wanted to smell fresh mountain air?

It is a dream of you to wake up amidst impressive mountain scenery when the first sunrays of the day touch the summits?

You want to witness the morning light moving down the mountain slopes while enjoying a cup of coffee?

Then you've come to the right place when it comes to "Bergschnuppern", because this offer from the Schladming-Dachstein Tourism Association combines all of these things. On a route of your choice, you hike from the valley to the Preintalerhütte, Waldhornalm or Hans-Wödl-Hütte in the Schladminger Tauern, where you spend your night. If you choose the short ascent route, you may also have time for a short hike around the hut.

Before you make yourself comfortable, enjoy an evening meal of your choice - and you never know how convivial the evening in the restaurant can be.

In the morning, a real mountaineer's breakfast awaits you to strengthen you for the day. The innkeepers will also give you a packed lunch for the day. You choose the route into the valley yourself from various options.
