“Try it in summer”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

The advantage of this ski resort is that it is near Vienna. Otherwise it has little going for it - it gets very crowded at the weekends and the slopes are nothing special. however in summer it is wonderful. You can go up the cablecar and do a great 3-hour round-trip hike to the other summit which has a nice restaurant on top. And/or you can take a "monster-roller" (a sort of scooter with giant wheels) down the hill. This is a bit scary but a lot of people think it is great fun! .

“360 Degrees Mountain Views”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Take the cable car, enjoy the views or do any sort of downhill sports. Not far from Vienna, Slovakia and Hungary, the mountain calls for sports enthusiasts at all seasons.

“Hirschkogel amusement - variety of possibilities”
Reviewed March 14, 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”
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”
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!!!
