Turn-by-turn directions

The trail - suitable for prams takes you past Aktivhotel Rohrmooserhof and Hotel Schwaigerhof and leads you via a series of lovingly created fairy-tale figures and pieces of play equipment to the “Witch’s House”.

From there, you walk up to Haus Strobl via 2 switchbacks. Once there, follow the Lans-Strobl-Weg to the left as far as Rohrmoosstraße. Take the sidewalk along the road downhill to Haus Primps, and after another 200 meters cross the street and follow the forest lane (in winter a ski piste) to the valley terminal of Gipfelbahn Hochwurzen cable car. Here you also have the possibility to continue on the "Mushroom Trail".

From the valley terminal pass by Familienhotel Austria and then continue on the lovely meadow trail left of Hotel Waldfrieden. Over a couple of meadows you get back to Hotel Schwaigerhof and the trail head where you started.

Getting there
From Schladming take provincial highway L722 (Rohrmoosstraße road) to Rohrmoos and at the roundabout continue straight on through the village center of Rohrmoos (the small supermarket Kaufhaus Sieder is on the left in the village center). After approx. 500 m "Schwaigerweg" road turns off right. The trail head and car parking is right at the turnoff.
With the Planai buses from Schladming (Planet-Planai, Lendplatz) or Rohrmoos (Rohrmoos-Zentrum) to Rohrmoos - bus stop "Schwaigerhof". Alternatively continue to the valley terminal of "Gipfelbahn Hochwurzen" cable car.
Parking
Parking is available at the turnoff of "Schwaigerweg" road.
Please do not use the parking of the hotels nearby. If no parking is available, use the alternative starting point at the valley terminal of Gipfelbahn Hochwurzen cable car - there is plenty of parking there.
