Nice Winterwalk, which you can hike up all the way to the mountain terminal, or simply ride the gondola up there, and stroll back downhill to the starting point of the hike from there.
Distance 5.9 km
Wide, groomed winter walking trail through the forest to the summit of Hochwurzen (1,852 m). You can either walk uphill to the mountain terminal of the Gipfelbahn Hochwurzen cable-car or take the cable-car and walk downhill.
- With the Schladming-Dachstein Winter Walking Ticket you can use several cable-cars and chair-lifts to get to the trail heads of some of the most beautiful winter hikes.
- If you like, rent a toboggan at one of the rental shops and walk up with it. You then can enjoy the 7 km long ride back down.
Perfect walk for those who want to meet friends who ski at a mountain chalet or restaurant.

Safety informationIn winter time it is therefore important to also be careful on supposedly easy walks. Sections that are in the shadows can easily get icy, and slopes on the side of the trail may have avalanche hazard. Mountain sport is always carried out under personal responsibility - in winter even more than in summer. Tourist offices or avalanche warning services do not take any responsibility in respect to information provided.
