Take a leisurely trip on this classic, olde worlde cog-railway up the Schafberg Mountain to a height of 1,783 metres.

The steepest, steam cog-railway in Austria has been ascending the Schafberg Mountain from St. Wolfgang since 1893. It takes 35 minutes to reach the summit, covering an ascent of 1,190 metres over 5.85 km.
The long-established cog railway's steam engines count amongst the oldest working engines in the world, though even with the more modern steam engines, a journey up the Schafberg Mountain is an unforgettable experience. The view from the summit (1,783 m) is the most magnificent in the world-famous Salzkammergut. On a clear day there is a 360° panoramic view over the glittering lakes of the Salzkammergut (eg Lakes Wolfgangsee, Irrsee, Mondsee and Fuschlsee) to Lake Chiemsee in Germany in the foothills of the Alps. All around, the mountains soar majestically, from the Höllengebirge range over the Dachstein Mountains to the Watzmann Mountain.
