“Hirschkogel amusement - variety of possibilities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Hirschkogel, or Zauberberg is one of the most beutiful places in Semmering, Austria. I is equipped well for all the seasons: skies and tobbogans are available for all the day in winter, bikes of different kinds are for your pleasure in summer. There is very spectacular view openning from the top of Hirshkogel onto Schneeberg - the highest mountain of the district. Wonders of walking will find many of crosscountry rotes along mountains. The every turn on the road open the new attractive views. There are a lot of possibilities to take drinks and food at the Hirschkogel and in the villiage. I advice reccommend to enjoy the Zauberberg - one of the best places equipped for everything one wants.

“Everything for a complete beginner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

It is only one hour by train from Vienna (with starting point in Wien Meidling) and next to the slope you can find everything you need. Rental for ski, boots, poles, protection helmets, shops for ski outfits, ski instructor that you can pay by the hour or for a longer duration.

The restaurants are right next to the slopes so you do not have to walk a long way in the ski boots.

“Great place to walk, ride or roll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Pretty mountain...so nice that it is well used in the summer as well as winter.
I rode the gondola everyday for a week and mainly walked the trails and photographed. The last day we rented monster rollers and they were hilarious. There is a great trail down with bridges and tunnels to explore on these oversized scooters. It was terrific fun...and you realize just how many muscles you have used the next day!!!

“Great value skiing destination without any hassle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

No lines for the lifts and definitely not crowded for a February weekend. The convenience to get to from Vienna (by train) and the affordability offset the not quite "powder" snow conditions. They also have night skiing available which I thought was very neat. At least two long downhill runs are open at night and are fully illuminated.

Very good resort, near Vienna. Direct acces from Highway. Good parking. All slopes are good prepared. Extra value - 3 slopes are prepared for the evening skiing every day . Excellent Rodelbahn.
