Depending on which season embraces the earth with its weather, Schmadming can either be a winter wonderland or serene summer village. Majestic mountains frame the quaint and quintessential tumble of houses, proving perfect for either skiing or strolling depending upon sun or snow. A charming Old Town welcomes visitors with its provincial appearance, warm atmosphere and ancient traditions, while the scenic surroundings offer outstanding opportunities for energetic and enriching expeditions.
Schladming boasts an interconnected network of majestic mountain trails, all of which rely on swift gondolas to transport skiers or strollers to their summit. The enchanting village resides at the foot of the Planai Mountain, a towering mound upon which a variety of frozen fun can be enjoyed during the winter months; race down upon swift sleights or enjoy the extensive toboggan run for an adrenaline fuelled adventure.
The social and spiritual heart of the quaint village is undoubtedly its Main Square, an atmospheric place which still retains the charm of ancient traditions. At night, the glimmering lights that illuminate the traditional houses offer an impossibly picturesque air which permeates the modern après-ski venues that prove perfect for post adventure refreshments.
A refined restaurant whose harmonious flavour combinations and perfect presentation has earned it the title of one of Schladming’s finest eateries is Die Tischlerei. In this elegant and inspired eatery, diners can delight in starters such as beef Carpaccio and fish platter before moving onto crispy skinned salmon accompanied by creamy mash and truffle oil drizzled vegetables.
