Schafberg Railway: Full steam ahead to the top! The steepest steam cog railway in Austria has been running from St. Wolfgang to Schafberg since 1893. In 45 minutes it is conquers 1,190 meters of altitude over a stretch of 5.5 km to the top of the Schafberg. Although the steam engines are among the oldest in the world, a trip up the Schafberg with the diesel locomotives is also an unforgettable experience. The Schafberg (1,783 m) is considered one of the most beautiful mountain views in the world-famous Salzkammergut region. On a clear day there is a 360 ° panoramic view of the glistening Salzkammergut lakes, including Wolfgangsee, Irrsee, Mondsee, Attersee and Traunsee. The majestic mountain environment in the surrounding area towers from the Höllengebirge to the Dachstein to the Watzmann.
