    The view from Schaftberg is simply phenomenal. The 360-degree panorama shows the Salzkammergut and its lakes from the most beautiful side. In clear, clear weather, the view extends even to the Chiemsee, the Bohemian Forest, the Dachstein and the Hohe Tauern. The climb has been worthwhile in any case.

    When I see the lake, I do not need a sea anymore.
    From the mountain I have seen 7 lakes. Mountains) writes there are even 13 lakes to see.

    On the Schafberg there is usually a lot of excitement due to the rack railway.
    If you want to get on foot and are not so mountain run, or sure-footed, should rise above the south side.
    On the north side, a challenging and varied trail leads along, which is also insured in the upper part with wire ropes.

    A wonderful view of the Wofgangssee and the Salzkammergut. It is especially breathtaking at dawn, before that you can spend the night in the mountain hotel. Very nice is the hike to the valley.

    The view is unique because of the many lakes!
