Whether you prefer gentler nature experiences or you are drawn by the high peaks - as you explore the hiking paths of the Schladming-Dachstein region, you are certain to discover one destined to become your all-time personal favorite.
Conduct with animals
Up on the mountain pastures in the Schladming-Dachstein Region you will encounter all sorts of animals such as cows, calves, horses, sheep etc. Do not provoke the animals, just act "normally" and do not show any fear. A stick can often help to visually create the necessary respect. Often the animals are just curious and want to play. Avoid distressing young animals in any way. Mother animals instinctively try to protect their young.
This particulary applies to walkers with dogs. Always have your dog on the lead and don't let your dog chase any animals. Should an animal attack your dog - despite it being on the lead - don't hold on tight, but let your dog run away for its own protection.
