Dachstein Panorama Road

Beautiful Hikes at the Foot of the Dachstein South Face

The Dachstein panorama road connects Ramsau with the Alpine pastures at the foot of Styria’s highest mountain, the Dachstein. The mountain road was built in 1961 and it winds its way along 6.3 km up to 1,700 m, to the bottom station of the Dachstein glacier’s gondola lift. Experience breathtaking scenic beauty with stunning views across the Schladming Tauern, to the Bischofsmütze, the Rötelstein, and the Dachstein’s splendid south face.

Whether by car, by motor bike, or by public bus, the Dachstein panorama road is starting point for many walks through the sprawling Alpine pastures, featuring rustic mountain huts and the top attraction, the Dachstein.

Gondola reservation

A reservation system for the gondola was introduced for the summer months May until September in order to deal with the large number of visitors over the summer months. Please reserve your ascent and descent.

Regular bus from Schladming

We recommend a stress-free ride up to the Dachstein valley station on the RVB glacier bus (the use is free of charge for guests with "Sommercard"), departure from Schladming "Planet Planai". You're welcome to park your car in the car park free of charge in the meantime.

In Summer, the Dachstein toll road is free with a valid Schladming Dachstein Summercard or for cable car passengers (Please validate it in the machine at the Dachstein mountain station or at the box office of the Dachstein valley station to use the road free of charge!).

In winter, present your toll-road ticket at the top station of the Dachstein gondola lift and/or at the cash desk of Adler ski lifts and it will be stamped, allowing you free use of the toll road.
