The Schladming-Dachstein area provides an ideal destination not only for ski fans, but also for those who visit the region in the summer. They can chose from a wide range of activities: from outdoor activities to relaxing in a peaceful environment.
Ennsradweg cycle route (263 km)
On of the most beautiful cycle routes which goes along the river and passes through 3 counties: Salzburg, Styria and Upper Austria. The Ennsradweg cycle route starts at an altitude of 1200 m at Flachauwinkl in Salzburg and ends in Enns at a height of 281 m.
The first stage is dominated by the magnificent highland, several lakes and the quietly flowing river Enns. We get to the medieval city of Schladming and to Haus im Ennstal where SissiPark is located between the rigorous Dachstein Glacier to the left and the dark, crystalline rock of the Low Tauern to the right. The road gets broader and leads to the most spectacular stage of the tour at the Trautenfels castle. At the entrance of the Gesäuse National Park the so far quiet river Enns becomes speedy and rumbling.
The road guides us next to sleepy villages and romantic cities like the old market town of Steyr, until we reach the cycle route along the Danube. The Ennsradweg cycle route is symbolized with a “R7“ in Styria.

From Haus we ride till the next village to Oberhaus. The 7 km path starts there which takes us up to the hill station of the Hauser Kaibling cable car. From there we can enjoy the stunning panorama. The road leads via the ski route to the Speicher Lake and through the forest road up to the Stangl meadow. In the meadows we can try the specialities of this region. On the way back we ride downhill for 9 km. Moving on towards Weißenbach we cross the Enns via the Enns bridge. On the Schotter road we ride along the Enns and pass a model airplane station. The path leads us side by side with the train and then we cross the Enns again through the Hänge bridge. Now comes the last uphill part of the tour that leads us back to the centre of Haus.

The tour begins in Haus at the Marktplatz, from where we can cycle along an easy road till Ruperting. Here starts the fist uphill stage to Grumpenberg. The route passes beautiful meadows till it takes us to the other side of the mountain, where the second uphill begins to Gössenberg. After a short descending we cycle uphill towards Pruggererberg. Now we can relax a little bit on the way down before we ascend to Michaelerberg to an altitude of 1200 m. The view which shows the whole Schladming-Dachstein region will make up for our troubles. After passing Mossheim and Gröbming comes the last uphill of the tour to Assach. The route descends from here through a forest road first to Assach, then to Aich from where we get back to Haus.
