To Dos While You’Re Here
Until recently, I’d exclusively been a downhill skier. But Ramsau am Dachstein, a heaven for cross-country skiing, made me change my mind… Moreover, the Rittis Alpin Chalets are located directly next to the Tritscherhöheloipe cross-country skiing trail. And it goes without saying that cross-country skiing is an awesome workout – it can be very exhausting, but it’s worth a try! So rent some fancy boots & skis and hit the tracks in style! Be sure to book a private instructor (1 hour/55 Euro).
There are lots of activities and sports that can be done in the region during the snowy season, and Glacier skiing is extremely tempting! The Dachstein Glacier (2,700 meters) – the highest mountain in Styria – boasts a legendary natural scenery and panoramic views.
Last but not least, Rittisberg in Ramsau am Dachstein is THE adventure mountain playground in the Schladming-Dachstein region and offers families with kids an unlimited range of attractions and activities.
BOTTOM LINE: whether you’re in the mood for winter sports or a peaceful hideaway, the Rittis Alpin Chalets will have you covered. So book your chalet early because they book up fast for the winter season! For online booking click here.
