Stage 03 From Glacier to Wine South Route Stoderzinken - Rohrmoos - Giglachseen

Open
From Schladming-Rohrmoos, this stage of the hiking route "From glacier to wine" leads right into the heart of the Schladminger Tauern to the Giglachseen lakes. The tour is made easier by the ascent with the Hochwurzen summit cable car from Rohrmoos to the Hochwurzenhütte (the ascent is free with the Sommercard!). The destination of the tour are the Giglachseen with the Ignaz Mattis Hut and as an alternative, a few hundred meters west of this, the Giglachseehütte. The two mountain lakes, the Upper Giglachsee and its much larger neighbor, the Lower Giglachsee are located at the foot of the Lungauer Kalkspitze and the Steirische Kalkspitze in the middle of the Tauern.
The Schladminger Tauern are not only one of the most beautiful hiking areas in the alpine region, but also surprise with tremendous treasures underground, which had high economic importance for the former mining town Schladming for centuries. In the Bromriesen, in Roßblei, in the Duisitzkar, on the Eschachalm, the Neualm, in Krombach and on the Krahbergzinken, copper, silver, lead, zinc, cobalt and nickel were mined. Especially the extraction of silver ores made Schladming one of the most important mining towns in Austria from the late 13th to the 15th century. Today we can follow in the footsteps of the miners in the Bromriesen gallery. When you explore the Bromriesen gallery on a guided tour, you feel like you're in an exciting adventure movie, where you become the main character in the glow of the lamps. The guides will show you how much the population depended on nature and how difficult and dangerous it was for the miners to earn their living.
