    09.09.2018 - A great place for a family outing. You can take the cog railway up the Salamander to the highest train station in Austria. There are various hiking trails from the train station. Several mountain huts offer food and drinks at a reasonable price 😊👍👍

    The striking massif of Wetterstein limestone with several peaks between 1,800 and 2,076 m has steep mountain sides on three sides and forms a geological unit with the western Rax (2007 m) - separated by the deep Höllental. The Hochschneeberg has a double summit: a gentle ridge connects the monastery's coat of arms further southwest with the Kaiserstein (2061 m) directly above the Fischerhütte. The strongly structured, karstified plateau has been supplying the Austrian capital with drinking water since 1873 via the 120 km long I Vienna High Spring Water Pipeline.

    The Schneeberg is a mountain massif in the Rax-Schneeberg group in Lower Austria, which is located in 2076 m above sea level. A. high monastery coat of arms culminates. It is the highest mountain in Lower Austria and the easternmost and northernmost two-thousanders of the Alps. Its dominance of nearly 50 km is exceeded in Austria only by the Grossglockner. Since 1897, the high plateau of the Schneeberg has been accessed by the Schneebergbahn with a rack railway.
