We took the ride on the way up and tracked on our way back. It is a very well maintained train and offers breathtaking views on the way to the top. When up on the top, we again had great views of the lakes and villages. Amazing!!!

The cog railway leaves opposite the Wolfgangsee boat jetty. If you arrive by bus there is a stop near it or walk down the hill from Wolfgangsee Michael Pacher house.
