More information

From Schladming take provincial highway L722 (Rohrmoosstraße road) to Rohrmoos and at the roundabout continue straight on through the village center of Rohrmoos (the small supermarket Kaufhaus Sieder is on the left in the village center). After approx. 500 m "Schwaigerweg" road turns off right. The trail head and car parking is directly at the turnoff on the left side (opposite of Apart & Suiten Hotel Weiden).
  • The trail - suitable for prams takes you past Apart & Suiten Hotel Weiden and Hotel Schwaigerhof and leads you via a series of lovingly created fairy-tale figures and pieces of play equipment to the “Witch’s House”.

From there, you walk up to Haus Strobl via 2 switchbacks. Once there, follow the Lans-Strobl-Weg to the left as far as Rohrmoosstraße. Take the sidewalk along the road downhill to Haus Primps, and after another 200 meters cross the street and follow the forest lane (in winter a ski piste) to the valley terminal of Gipfelbahn Hochwurzen cable car. Here you also have the possibility to continue on the "Mushroom Trail".

From the valley terminal pass by Familienhotel Austria and then continue on the lovely meadow trail left of Hotel Waldfrieden. Over a couple of meadows you get back to Hotel Schwaigerhof and the trail head where you started.

  • Don't forget your lunch box :) along the trail you'll find numerous possibilities for a picnic.
    The small supermarket "Kaufhaus Sieder" in Rohrmoos offers a special picnic rucksack if you like!
