UNESCO World Heritage Site of Semmering railway

Historical sites


At the heart of the World Heritage Site of Semmering railway, the healing high altitude health resort of Semmering offers a range of walking options. We highly recommended walking along the rail hiking route with a visit to the World Heritage Information Centre at Semmering train station, continuing passed the memorial to Carl Ritter von Ghegas and stopping at the kid's railway, where info boards along the adventure trail tell the story of the first mountain railway in the world.
