Planai Panorama Loop

Open
A leisurely alpine stroll at 1900 m above sea level – a nature experience for the whole family (also suitable for prams/strollers!).

This variety-filled, almost flat loop takes you around Planai summit, serving up magnificent views of Ennstal valley, the mountain world of the Schladminger and Hohe Tauern, Dachstein massif and the Ramsau plateau. After just a few metres, you will reach the “Place of Reflection” by small, idyllic Planai tarn. To mark the 25th anniversary of the Planai-Hochwurzen lift company, the walkable wood sculpture in the form of a cross was built here.

Along the path, boards provide info about flora, fauna and interesting facts about the region. If you wish, chalk up another summit conquest: hike uphill for about 10 minutes and you will be at the top of the Planai!
