Pichlmayrgut activity card

Embarking on an adventure. Or two.


There is a lot to enjoy in and around our hotel village. So much so that the hotel has founded its own activity club, in which our guests can enjoy exclusive discounts and an exciting programme. Just one of many bonuses is that you can travel on the Dachstein cable car at half price in summer.

Free admission with the activity card

As a guest of the Pichlmayrgut, you will have free travel and entry to the Reiteralm toll road, the Preuneugg toll road to the Ursprungsalm, and the Pichl bathing lake, depending on the opening hours according to the weather conditions.

Half price

And you can take the Dachstein, Planai (main cable car) and Preunegg-Jet Reiteralm cable cars at half price in summer. You can find out the exact conditions at the Pichlmayrgut's reception.

Guided tours

As a guest at the Pichlmayrgut, you will be able to enjoy a carefully compiled activity programme, with or without trained and communicative mountain guides to help you. Find out more about the country, its people, flora and fauna on joint hikes.

Mini Activity Club for children

Our youngest guests especially enjoy being active. The Steiner family comes up with new ideas every year to make sure that the holiday is a complete success, also for the little ones.

Winter sports

Into the winter wonderland.

The white giants will be standing guard when you step outside with your skis in the morning. We recommend that you hurry off to the cable car and into the fun. Because the winter sun, which makes everything sparkle and shine, withdraws early in the evenings.

Four-mountain skiing area (4-Berge-Skischaukel)

With 230 km of pistes, the Schladming-Dachstein region is a true paradise for skiers. Ultra-modern lifts will take you up in comfort, and you will then descend by yourself.

Ski bus

Our private ski bus will take you from the hotel village to the Reiteralm valley station and bring you back in no time. Our pick-up and delivery service operates several times a day, so that you can ski without worrying about the time and know that you won’t have to wait long for the bus when you want it.

Cross-country skiing

Scenic panoramas will pass you on both sides as you leave your tracks in the snow. You can set your own pace, while the weather god sends you sunshine. There are a lot of rental shops in the area, in case you don't have your own skis with you.

Off piste?

You can do more than just ski. Winter in the Dachstein region has a lot of exciting experiences to offer. Snowshoe hiking, tobogganing, ice skating, or travelling wrapped in a warm blanket on a horse-drawn carriage will show you a whole new side to winter.

Dachstein Glacier

The glass panorama cable car will take you to the roof of Styria in just ten minutes. At a dizzying 2,700 m above sea level, you will be able to see as far as the neighbouring country. The Sky Walk, the Treppe ins Nichts (the "stairs to nowhere"), and the Ice Palace together promise an unforgettable experience on top of the spectacular view.

Events

Schladming is famous for its events. From the legendary Night Race on the Planai to Ski Openings with top stars, there is always something going on here. Nighthawks turn night into day during après-ski or drop into the Pichlmayrgut's chic hotel bar.

Events

Hiking

On the green roof of the region.


By the time the morning sun runs over the peaks and into the valley, hardly anyone can keep their feet still. The mountain is calling. It is calling you to hike, climb, marvel, and stop for refreshments.

Hiking trails

Everyone loves to hike amid this scene of fragrant forests, lush green meadows, limestone grey walls and countless peaks. Each of the countless hiking trails will amaze you. Christian Steiner, the host, will be happy to accompany you personally and enliven your tour with interesting facts and stories.

Via ferrata

The last few metres to the highest peaks are always steep and demanding. This will make your joy at reaching the summit all the more intense. The Schladming-Dachstein region is like El Dorado for climbers. But it is also a good place for beginners, children and young people to start off.

Almen (mountain farm houses)

Anyone who goes out will want to stop for refreshments sooner or later. A lot of mountain farm houses welcome hikers and climbers with hospitality and culinary specialities.

Mountain lakes

A panorama with depth.


Many crystal clear lakes lie in the rugged mountain landscape, ranging in colour from a dark olive green to a turquoise hue. On windless days, the mountains are perfectly mirrored on their surface. Coming to a body of water is certainly a highlight of every hike.

Sporting activities

Coming to one's self while moving on.

The region's mix of passable and impassable terrain is perfect for sporting activities. Enjoy nature as if in fast forward or, if you prefer, from a bird's eye perspective.


Paragliding

To be as free as a bird for once. A paraglider flight comes very close to our age-old dream of flying. Ambitious pilots fly from the snow-covered Dachstein mountain into the valley.

Riding

Fresh hoof prints in the ground often demonstrate how popular Ramsau is with riding enthusiasts. You will be able to enjoy the beauty of the surrounding nature to the full riding on a horse, a pony or a donkey, whichever suits you best.

Biking

Cyclists and mountain bikers find that their hearts beat faster in this region. And that is even before they even begin to pedal. Tours for mountain and e-bikes, a great variety of trails, children's attractions in the bike park, and much will all more ensure that no one's wish is left ungranted.

Golfing

The Dachstein Tauern Golf & Country Club has a large 18-hole course, embedded in an idyllic natural setting. You can have a little practice session in any weather on the driving range near the clubhouse. The Pichlmayrgut has an arrangement with all four golf clubs (Radstadt, Dachstein-Tauern, Schloss Pichlarn, and Ennstal). As our guest, you will receive a 20% reduction on the daily green fees.

Swimming

Its pure water, a spacious sunbathing lawn with trees to provide shade, and a children's area with a bouncy castle and a water slide make the bathing lake at Pichl a hotspot for sun worshippers. The Dachsteinbad welcomes swimmers in summer and winter alike to its Centre for Wellbeing and Health, which it only opened in 2019.

Attractions

Being awed and impressed.


The feelings of amazement and happiness are very close to each other. As you let yourself be enchanted by cultural, natural and other attractions, you will release feelings of happiness that will remain with you for a long time.

Dachstein Glacier

This peak of excitement measures 2,700 m above sea level. Up here you can enjoy the impressive panorama from various viewing platforms and wonder at sculptures in the Ice Palace. The Sky Walk and the Treppe ins Nichts (the "stairs to nowhere") will make the glacier a perfect experience for the whole family.

Hopsiland Planai

Hopsi has been in Schladming since the 1982 World Cup. This mascot is as popular today as it ever was. Your children can try out the fun play stations in Hopsiland, Syria's highest playground, to their hearts' content. Hungry families can refresh themselves after the fun in one of the huts.

City of Salzburg

You can change the setting within just an hour. From "In the mountains" to "In the midst of culture, shopping, and the city of Mozart". The Steiner family and their team at the Pichlmayrgut will be happy to discuss what you might particularly enjoy in Salzburg.

Castles & palaces

Are the Middle Ages long gone? Far from it. If you want, you can take a journey back in time to the world of knights, damsels, battlements, and dank dungeons. You can spend a day in the time of our ancestors at the Hohenwerfen and Mauterndorf adventure castles.

Salzwelten

Even children know that you can find valuable treasures in a mine. The Salzkammergut region also glitters and sparkles underground. They still mine salt here. However, the salt worlds in Hallein, Hallstatt, and Altaussee are only made for visitors. If you venture into the tunnels, you can experience fascinating things like an old salt lake, a chapel inside the mountain, and much more.

Ravines

Wild waters tumble thunder and roar downhill. You can observe this wild and romantic spectacle of nature from protected footbridges. The Wörschachklamm and Talbachklamm ravines are fine examples of this rushing spectacle.

Due to renovation work, the hotel is closed between 26.09. and 4.12. We thank you for your understanding.
