Ramsau-Dachstein in short

  • Summer skiing on the Dachstein Glacier
  • Ideal area for cross-country skiers
  • Choice of various villages

South of Schladming, at the foot of the imposing Dachstein Glacier is Ramsau. This is a romantic alpine village situated on a plateau about 300 m above the Enns Valley. Ramsau is known as the village with the most horses in Austria. It is very worthwhile taking a horseride through the rolling mountains. Please note that Ramsau and the surrounding villages are quite far apart.

The ski resort of Ramsau is suitable for all levels due to its great diversity. Beginners can get plenty of practice on the wide and relatively flat slopes, while there are also famous and challenging freeride runs for advanced skiers. Besides skiing, you can use a carriage or sleigh for a ride through the mountains, which gives great views over the snowy landscapes.
