“Stunning views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Although E30 each which seemed quite expensive, enjoyable trip and you can enjoy 360 degree views, which change minute by minute.

“Train in the clouds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Train will bring you to the very top of the beautiful mountain. Higher you get, more wonderful views you'll see and at the top you'll be just above the clouds. The train itself is also very interesting, it will even stop in the middle of the way, to fill water tank - everything is real.

Be sure to try only in clean weather, otherwise views can be hidden in clouds.

“Great views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

This trip up the Schafberg by cog railway is well worth the price. It takes about 40 minutes to climb up to the top and once there you have a 360 degree view of St. Wolfgang See and the surrounding area. Breathtaking!!

“Excelent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

This tour is a must. The lakes view is wonderful and the train ride is fun. For the tour to be successful it is important: bring warm clothes, check the weather forecast to be a sunny day, marking a return when you arrive at the top (1 hour is sufficient). Another tip is to stay on the left side of the train, where the best views are on the rise
