Getting There

This skiing center is in the Dachstein-Tauern recreation and winter-sports area on Route B320 and the Vienna-Bruck/Mur-Graz rail line. It's easy to reach. The center of Rohrmoos is 2km (1 mile) south of the center of Schladming, but the edges of the two resorts touch one another; for most practical purposes, they are considered one.

At least one train every two hours reaches Schladming from Graz (trip time: 2 1/2 hr.) or Salzburg (trip time: 1 1/2 hr.). Some trains from Graz might require a transfer at Selzthal, and some trains from Salzburg require a transfer in Bischofshofen. For rail information, contact tel. 05/1717 (www.oebb.at).

Many bus routes begin in Schladming and wind into the surrounding hills and valleys; many of the town's residents use these buses. Rohrmoos has no rail connections, but many buses travel along the northeast to southwest stretch of the valley between Schladming and Rohrmoos, making frequent stops at the hotels that line the valley's main road.

In the northwestern corner of Styria, Schladming/Rohrmoos is often visited by people driving from Land Salzburg. To get here, take the A10 south from Salzburg to the junction with Route 308 (exit 63), heading east. Schladming is 299km (186 miles) southwest of Vienna and 203km (126 miles) northwest of Graz.
