The Tauern Panorama Tour is a very easy, but extensive trail connecting Schladming and the village of Pichl on either sides of the Ennstal valley. Along the north slope of the valley, the trail is mostly a wide forest and meadow trail taking you to the swimming lake in Pichl where the Freizeitstüberl inn and Café Hermann invite for refreshments. On the south bank of the river Enns, the route runs back to Schladming along the cycling tour "Ennsradweg" with the signage "R7". In Schladming, restaurants Sanino and Zirngast are two refreshment stops amongst others.
Changes in weather patterns, quick falls in temperature, thunderstorms, wind, fog and snow are some of the dangers that can be encountered on a hiking tour. Hosts of alpine huts and mountain refuges have a lot of experience in the mountains and can give good advice about weather and the trails. Poor equipment, overestimation of one's own capabilities, carelessness, poor personal constitution and/or wrong judgement can lead to critical situations. In case of thunderstorms: avoid summits, ridges and steel ropes.
GPS data and orienteering
Available GPS data - just like hiking maps - is only a guidance for orientation and can never depict a trail exactly with all its details. Especially at dangerous spots it is essential to judge on site how to proceed.
In an emergency please call:
