In addition to visiting numerous original locations in the spectacular mountains of the Schladming-Dachstein region in the heart of Austria, the participants were offered a varied program with many highlights.
Happy rescues and romantic encounters, beautiful landscape shots and a fantastic mountain backdrop, as well as many feelings and emotions in the mountains - all of this is the focus of the series “The Mountain Rescuers”. More than 80 episodes have already been broadcast and the 15th season will soon be on the TV schedule.
The autumn fan hike to well-known filming locations has already become a tradition, enriched with a lot of action and, above all, very personal contact with the main actors of the series around Sebastian Ströbel, Luise Bähr and Robert Lohr. Leisurely hike, meet & greet and culinary delicacies On Friday morning, the loyal fans went on a leisurely - or, if desired, sporty - hike over the Kulmberg to the Biohotel Herold, where a hearty snack and, as a culinary highlight, a traditional Kaiserschmarrn from the giant pan the hungry series friends were waiting. Afterwards we went back to Ramsau Ort, where fans were able to take a look behind the scenes by visiting the original filming locations and the equipment. In the evening, some series friends met at the Bergretter fan get-together in the Waldschenke, where the day came to a rustic end.
Saturday began with a welcome to the actors and a hike to the Emilie farm, one of the main filming locations for the television series. There, fans were able to get autographs and enjoy their stay until late afternoon. The day came to a crowning conclusion with a colorful evening event in the Dachstein Event Center, which not only offered entertainment from the actors, but also an exquisite evening menu.
Sunday was all about the helicopter - in addition to the actors, it was also one of the “main actors” of the popular TV series. Some lucky fans had the opportunity to experience a spectacular sightseeing flight over the Schladming-Dachstein region with the "yellow bird", which was offered exclusively to participants in the Original Bergretter fan hike.
Mathias Schattleitner, managing director of the Schladming-Dachstein tourism region, is convinced that “The Mountain Rescuers” make a major contribution to the awareness of the Styrian holiday destination. “We are extremely grateful that such a TV series with such a high viewership is being filmed in our region.
