Schladming-Dachstein entices aviators with outstanding thermals that enable long-distance flights and glorious open spaces for soaring. Excellent access to all launch and landing areas, plus 2 top flight schools for all the support you could wish for ...
Discovering the world from on horseback is a thoroughly memorable experience. Beginners' lessons, trail rides, a marked bridle path through the Schladming-Dachstein Region, and even adventurous hut trekking. Riding stables are located throughout the region and provide a marvelous opportunity to enjoy equestrian sports to the absolute fullest .. the nearest riding stable is just 3 min from the Baerenwirt****
We have 2 riding horses of our own - hutzels - if you are experienced, you are welcome to ride them. Sampler rides as well as pony rides are offered once a week free of charge as part of our children's program.

Though still with plenty of time to enjoy nature from a whole new perspective. Launch yourself and enjoy the newest, most thrilling tourism attraction in our region.
A memorable experience for young and old!
Located in the center of the Dachstein Tauern Region, right next to the toll-free Stoderzinken Road, is the biggest climbing park in Austria - Gröbming Adventure Park, opened in 2015!
At the foot of the Stoderzinken, just a little outside the market town of Gröbming, you can look forward to new challenges of courage and skill, fun tasks, extraordinary perspectives and, above all, enjoyment for the whole family!
Deep gorges, thunderous waterfalls, canyons of smooth marble, encounters with the immense power of water. Use special equipment to rappel down cliffs, jump into deep pools, swim, dive. Rafting and canyoning promise a close-up experience with water like never before. Other offers include guided glacier hikes and diving in alpine tarns.
6 meters of snow at the start of summer season? The summer season begins on 10 May, when the Dachstein gondola lift opens its doors and carries guests up into a high-alpine world of adventure. Sightseeing, snowboarding, skiing, cross-country, climbing, hiking, mountaineering, paragliding, enjoying the views - on the Dachstein, you can do all of that and more.
Race feeling for the whole family - even in bad weather!
Even children ages 9 and up and at least 1.4 meters tall can "put the pedal to the metal" on this race track. You can drive the karts as fast or as slow as you wish, making this a safe experience even for youngsters. Children under age 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
The E-go-kart track is located on the lower level of WM-Park Planai, which means you can enjoy it regardless of the weather outside. All you need to bring along is a sturdy pair of shoes and your "need for speed"! You will be issued a safety helmet before you start.
...newly developed sporting equipment that's great fun.
The wide tires and good disc brakes give you a good feeling of safety even after just a few meters. Shock absorbers mean that the front wheel always remains in contact with the ground, providing added safety even at high speeds. The very comfortable ergonomic seat simply adds to the enjoyment of the whole experience.
Ready, set, go!
On the all-weather Rittisberg Coaster you will slide down the mountain as fast or slow as you feel comfortable. You determine the speed for yourself. On this 1300-meter track made of steel tubing, you will glide without a sound back to the valley below. The track and equipment have all been safety-certified.
And when you are ready, ride the lift right back up to the top of the mountain - in all weather, since the all-weather bubbles provide protection from any rain or wind.
