The alpine trail "Durch die Höll" was selected as Austria's most beautiful hiking trail in 2012. In Rohrmoos Obertal, you will hike next to a wild mountain stream with a waterfall. Along the 14.5 km hiking path, you will be treated to footbridges, fixed-cable ascents, ladders and stairways. Modern technology makes it possible even for less "serious" hikers - with good hiking boots - to enjoy this amazing nature experience. You will enter a world of thunderous water and feel the mist of water droplets on your skin. You will be completely alone, just you and Mother Nature. This is something you simply have to experience for yourself! For a virtual impression, we suggest visiting www.schladming-dachstein.at
