Top things to See and Do in Schladming
Swimming in Schladming
Schladming has a couple of beach and bathing lakes in the vicinity. Ramsau Beach is the closest, attracting families and those with lots of energy to spare. Lake Pichl is peaceful in comparison and slightly more out of reach, but still a wonderful place to spend the day.
Ramsau Beach is a large bathing lake and amusement area just 15 minutes’ drive outside of Schladming. The shingle shores are flanked by sprawling lawns, beautiful mountain scenery and plenty of adventure. Have fun with beach volleyball, trampolines or football.
Lake Pichl is a little bit further away by car, but it’s also quieter. One of the cleanest lakes in the region, Lake Pichl has a children’s adventure playground, table tennis, a spacious sunbathing area and a snack bar.
If you don’t mind a bit of an out-of-town trek, drop by the regional farmers' market on the first Saturday of every month. It’s held from early May through to early October at Naturpark Sölktäler. Browse products like smoked meats, sausages, breads and honey.
Schladming has a casual clothing and activewear brand, Blue Tomato, and a few specialist sports retailers to choose from. Klieber Josef is great for shoes and handbags, if you’re looking for something non-sporty in town.
If you just want to relax, pop by Café Niederl to pick up an ice cream to accompany you on an evening stroll around town.
Livelier evenings in Schladming can be spent at Cabalou, directly opposite the Hotel Post. They serve delicious cocktails and a variety of coffee options.
With all the walking you’ll be doing, you’ll need some hearty meals to keep your energy up. Schladming has around 40 restaurants – an excellent number for a pretty small town. There are plenty of traditional places where you can sample the local specialities, but you can also find high-end eateries for a more sophisticated experience.
