Schladming has several different toboggan runs. One of the longest runs in the Alps is on Hochwurzen in Schladming. The 7 km long natural toboggan run is open during the day and night and is charmingly lit between 19.30-23.30. Many huts are spread out along the track to make sure every tummy and throat are satisfied.

Often family-run, horse-drawn sledges are available in many locations in the region - a beautiful way to get the experience of the picturesque scenery.
Restaurants, bars and Après-ski
Wherever you go, you will find quaint little restaurants, ready to satisfy your cravings. If you’re not quite ready to go home after the lifts close or straight to bed after dinner, Schladming has an active après-ski/nightlife waiting for you to explore.
In the slopes
With breathtaking views and easy access even if you don't ski, the Schafalm (right next to the Planai gondola station) is one of our favourites. A big heated all-weather terrace makes this a go-to-place all year around. Two other huts worth mentioning are Hoch Alm and Onkel Willys Hütte if you are looking for some cozy traditional spots in the slope!
In the village
After the traditonal Austrian food often served in the slopes, it can be nice with something different to tickle the tastebuds for dinner. Papa Joes, Johann and Amalfi - all three located in the heart of Schladming village - are amazing spots for some international seasonal flavours.
