Cosy train ride from Puchberg up Schneeberg: In an amusing Salamander design, the cult Schneebergbahn winds its way through the landscape of blooming alpine meadows and fragrant coniferous forests. Just like this it takes both big and small guests to the highest mountain in Lower Austria - safely, comfortably and in just 40 minutes.

The original rack railway was the first to puff up the mountain from Puchberg in 1897. The modern Salamander railcars were launched a hundred years later: Since 1999, the idyllic picture of the Vienna Alps has been characterised by spotted trains. Since then, the Schneebergbahn has reached its destination countless times - the barrier-free Hochschneeberg mountain railway station at 1,800 metres above sea level. From here it opens up to wonderful hikes for the whole family. Later, the reliable Salamander returns to the valley.

Sweet refreshment in the meantime - at the Salamander Stop

A very enjoyable stopover is possible at the Baumgartner stop. This is where the famous Schneeberg-Buchteln are served: a sweet speciality made from yeast dough with a jam filling.

Tip: On the Schneebergbahn website, tickets for the ascent and descent can be bought at home and printed out - very conveniently.
