Sattelberg Loop Trail

A beautiful and family-friendly loop around the Sattelberg, with interesting adventure points and splendid views onto the Schladminger Tauern. 

This family-friendly trail leads through the forest following narrow paths. A stunning feature of this walk is the Farmer's Mill: the last well-preserved grain mill. 

Back in the day, almost every farmer had their own mill.

More information

From the west: 

Tauern Autobahn (A 10) to Knoten Ennstal - turnoff direction Graz/Schladming - stay on the Ennstal-Bundesstraße (B320) for approx. 20 km until Schladming - take the turnoff for Ramsau. 

From the north: 

Pyhrn Autobahn (A 9)  direction Liezen - take the Ennstal-Bundesstraße (B320)  to Schladming - turnoff Ramsau.

The starting point is at the Catholic Church next to the Tourist Information Centre in Ramsau Kulm. The path will first lead to the crossroad Alpenbad. Take the left to the 'Hofrat Gruber' path and follow the brook along to the crossing at the bridge.

To your right is the path to Hotel Edelweiß and the Kid's Adventure Trail. 

Straight ahead are the old farmer's mill, Kali's Via Ferratas (to your right), and the Lodenwalke. 

Turn left, cross the field to crossroad Percht. From there, a beautiful shady path will take you up to 'Jausenstation Fliegenpilz' and back down past Silberkar Canyon's parking lot to the Lodenwalke. Shortly after, you will reach the Rössingstraße and a couple of meters up, a bridge will cross the brook.

Follow the wide path to the next crossing after approx. 20 min. Take a right (careful: it's easily overlooked),  into a narrow forest path with a steady incline to the Sattelberghütte. Past the hut, you will take a wider path through the forest to Hotel Edelweiß. From there, the street will take you to Hotel Almfrieden. Join the walking trail to Kulm.  

Duration: approx. 3 h

Every Friday, the mill is put into operation and you can view its interiors.
