Klettersteig: Auf mittlerweile 6 verschiedenen Klettersteigen auf der Schlossalm gilt es, seine Geschicklichkeit zu testen. Bevor es in die Wand geht geht es zur Probe an die Übungswand.
Die Quellbodenhütte war ursprünglich ein altes Bauernhaus in der Forstau und wurde 1995 als Skihütte hier wieder aufgebaut. In den zwei Bauernstuben mit Kachelofen soll sich jeder wohl fühlen und es sich gemütlich machen. Wenn Du nach einer deftigen Suppenschüssel oder einem Krapfen mit echtem Steirerkäse oder Honig gestärkt bist, kannst Du auf unserer Terrasse bei einer Tasse Kaffee das wunderschöne Panorama des Dachsteinmassivs genießen.
In winter, when the cold mountain air of the Schladminger Tauern whips across your face outside, the smell of homemade Kaiserschmarren wafting over from the Schafalm lures you inside the cozy hut. The friendly staff there do their part to guarantee a perfect break before your next run down the Planai. In the winter months, the Schafalm is also home to a number of woolly four-legged creatures, "Valais blacknose sheep" who spend the winter in the adjacent barn (which you are also invited to peek inside), before returning to the lush green alpine meadows of the Planai in summer. An absolute highlight at the Schafalm, especially for younger guests.
Ski and Wine Enjoyment Week 12 – 19 of March, 2022

The church with its characteristic, crooked steeple and the Gothic architecture is among the oldest historic buildings in the valley. The tower, with rounded arch and acoustic windows in the upper story, had to be reinforced with a retaining wall in 1616, because it was already beginning to lean severely towards the northwest. We unfortunately do not know who the architect was.
The high altar inside the church has been remodeled several times. The jewel of the parish church is the late Gothic Madonna, created in 1460. It shows the Virgin Mary with child on a crescent moon. In 2001 parts of the church were renovated.
Only very few craftsmen are masters in the art of quill embroidery nowadays. Walter Grübl and Herbert Klieber are the last representatives of this trade in Salzburg.
The way to the heart is through the stomach, and at the Jufenalm you can taste tradition! Our à-la-carte restaurant will spoil you with hearty and typically Austrian dishes that are prepared for you freshly, with plenty of passion, by using the best regional and seasonal produce. You can’t forget to have a delicious self-distilled schnapps to help you digest your meal though, of course!
