Highland route right across the Schladminger Tauern: from hut to hut

The Schladminger-Tauern Höhenweg trail is a stage along Central Alpine Trail 02, which traverses the entire Alpine region.



Due to its unique geological features, the wealth of plant and animals species, and the special character of the surrounding mountain world, this particular section of the Central Alpine Trail through the Schladminger-Tauern is one of the most beautiful hiking tours to be found anywhere in the Alps. Dozens of tarns and waterfalls of the Niedere Tauern range, you will find a majority of those in the valleys, basins and coombes of the Schladminger Tauern. Pristine, untamed streams with thunderous waterfalls and countless small rivulets flowing from springs beneath the Tauern mountains add to the appeal and charm of this region. In addition, some truly rewarding mountain destinations, such as the Hochgolling, the highest mountain in the Niedere Tauern, along with the Höchstein, Hohe Wildstelle, Steirische Kalkspitze and many more, all lie directly along the path. Particularly unique impressions await you during a tour through the Klafferkessel and on the shores of the "Goldlacken". An arctic-style lakescape, with flora you would normally only find at more northern latitudes, always guaranteed to captivate each and every alpine hiker.
