Glaciers, cities and lakes

We love Schladming in the winter and we're excited to offer a new programme in this stunning Alpine region of Austria this summer. There's so much to do in the area, in addition to the beautiful natural scenery of mountains, lakes and waterfalls. If you enjoy walking, cycling, ice caves, museums or even go-kart trikes, you'll love exploring this area! 


The excellent Summer card

We pay a tourist tax on your behalf, which entitles you to a local card offering free or discounted admission to over 100 attractions in the Schladming area. These include a number of lifts and cable cars, such as the ride up to the stunning Dachstein Glacier, entrance to a variety of museums, parks and pools, plus free access to buses which operate throughout the local area.

Introducing Hotel Taferne

This year we are staying at the three-star, family-owned Hotel Taferne. An ideal location for a week of the best mountain adventures!

A continental breakfast will be served each morning. After a day of exploring, we return home to Hotel Taferne where we will enjoy an appetising three-course meal served to us by the hotel staff.


A range of room options

The hotel is comfortable and all bedrooms are en-suite. We will use most of the rooms for two people, but some of the rooms can be used for three or four people if you prefer. Many of the beds are Austrian-style (one frame with separate mattresses and duvets). There are also a small number of single rooms. 


The Hills are Alive

Our optional excursion package takes us on three day trips to explore this historic and scenic region and the cost covers hiring the coach to visit places not included on the Summer card.

Famous for its role in The Sound of Music and as the birthplace of Mozart, our first excursion takes us to the city of Salzburg. This city is a world-renowned destination for scenery, history and culture. Once you’ve hit all your ‘must see’ locations, take time to explore the rich history and baroque architecture or enjoy the interesting parks and cafés.

Amazing glacier views

For our second excursion we will make our way to the stunning Dachstein glacier, with snow all year round and stunning views. The Summer card includes the cable car to the glacier and at the top there are various options available, payable locally, including the suspension bridge, ice palace and “stairway to nothingness”!


Salt Lake City

Join us for our third excursion, a day in Hallstatt, known famously for its salt mines and the charming villages on either side of the tranquil lake. Take a boat ride between the villages, traverse through the Dachstein Ice Cave, spend the day walking along the trails nearby, or explore the story of the region in the Hallstatt Museum. The museum, the salt mines and the Dachstein Ice Cave are designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In the evenings, a time of singing and a helpful Bible talk are always a highlight.

Free Day Fun

For those looking to get out and enjoy some activity in the fresh air, there are miles of cycle paths, marked hiking trails and swimming lakes to discover, as well as free or discounted admission to dozens of local attractions with the Summer Card. Visit traditional mountain huts, explore museums featuring the local history, or race down the mountain on three-wheeled go-kart trikes - there is endless fun to discover here!


The cost includes return flights from London Heathrow to Munich with British Airways, airport taxes and charges, airport transfers, and accommodation with breakfast and evening meals. It also includes the tourist tax, which entitles you to the Dachstein summer card, offering free cable car rides etc.
