Semmering can be reached from Vienna by train - all the info regarding Austrian Railways can be found at www.oebb.at/en/index.jsp
There's some 10 daily connections. Not all trains are direct, but those that are take around 1 hour.
Regular ticket costs around 20€ per person one-way, but best value is "group daily ticket" - it costs 28€ for up to 5 persons and is valid for all routes in Austria from 9AM till 3AM.
Trains depart from (and return to) Vienna Meidling station.
Railway station in Semmering is few kilometers away from the slopes, but I don't think you should have problems finding a bus or a shuttle.

Check www.zauberberg.at/en/zauberberg/ about what can be done at Semmering. Simple fun in the snow is usually free at skiing resorts, tickets have to be bought to use their ski-lifts.
You will very likely have to rent equipment (like sledges) though.
There's also "adventure tobogganing" - basically sledging for kids on prepared slopes with some fairytale thrown in.

glad i was able to unconfuse you :)

"group daily ticket" is called on the ticket vending machines on every train station "Einfach Raus Ticket", for REX and more slow trains only (doesn´t make much difference for Vienna to Semmering)

Hi,

I am also confused! (although your reply helped somewhat)

I don't understand the difference between Semmering Zauberberg and Semmering Stuhleck? I can see that for Stuhleck the train station is Am Spital and I believe it is simply semmering station for Zauberberg?

The problem I have is that I believe Stuhleck is the better resort (amazing looking altitude restaurant, tubing, and toboggan's?)

So my problem is Stuhleck looks like the best place (and also the best train journey), but the train connections from semmering to Am Spital are terrible (almost 1 hour wait!)

So my question is what really is the difference between these two ski resorts and are they easy to travel between? (eg could I get s bus from semmering station to Stuhleck?)

Cheers

Craig

Travel Tips for Semmering

Summers in Semmering in these magic mountains

by Fam.Rauca

Vacation, recuperation, and relaxation at the Semmering, this means many possibilities for you in a wonderful, diverse landscape in mild and untouched nature.
The universally known, fixed-climatic height air health resort offers the right for you. The station is in summers exactly so popular and frequents like in winters.
Many vacationers come here, for recuperation and sport.
For travelling fans, there are hundred kilometres of footpath, led hikes, to mountain huts, mountain inns, and cubicle track in an untouched mountain world.

the grasshoppers of Rax - oh, la-la !!

by globetrott

Did you expect to see any grasshoppers in alpine hights of 1700 meters ? Well, the 2 on my photograph are obviously working hard in order to make sure the population of grasshoppers is growing. I took around 100 pics with various programs of my camera, with flash and without, BUT they simply did not care at all, although my camera was in a distance of just 30-40 cm.
Below Ottohaus there is a flat part with various areas covered by a sort of plant that indicates in my experience that there is a lake or at least some water below, and this where I saw that lovely couple of grashoppers !

steam-trains of Schneeberg

by globetrott

Untill 1969 all trains to Schneeberg used to be steam-trains and still today some of them will take you uphill at special dates and for an additional-fare of 6 euros p.P extra to the ordinary ticket.
When you come on a weekend to Puchberg am Schneeberg, you can also visit the small museum in the back of the station, in a distance of 150 meters. in summer 2007 , there is the exhibition "110 Jahre Schneebergbahn"
This exhibition about 110 years of steam-trains at Semmering
is open every saturday + sunday & holyday
between july 7th and september 23rd,2007
FREE entrance !!
besides of the exhibition inside of the shed you can see some exhibits also outside, any time of the year !
-------------------------------------------------------------
Steam-trains will be operated each sunday
between Puchberg and the Berghaus Hochschneeberg
from July 1st till September 2nd, 2007
at 10.45a.m. uphill an 02.45 downhill
and at september 7th
at 10.15 uphill and
at september 8th, 2007 at 11.15 a.m. uphill
for a ride with the old steam-train the fee is 6 euros extra !

Snow cannons galore

by globetrott

See the armada of snow-cannons, I counted 20 of them and at Hirschenkogel in Semmering you can even see them stading there all summertime and can take a look how hese machines are working: water is spread out of hundreds of small holes, while a fresh breeze is blown by a ginat fan. It needs a lot of electricity and a lot of water, but it seems to work for the business and in the warm winter of the year 2006/07 only the small slopes had artificial snow, while the rest of the mountain was green or rather grey and muddy.

Bahnwanderweg / hiking along the Semmeringbahn

by globetrott

Hiking along the Semmeringbahn is possible, BUT mostly you will walk in quite a distance to the train-tracks and you will rather seldom see the trains from a special view-point. I was searching for the point where the pics of the brochure were done, but obviously they were taken from a helicopter.
So it makes sense to walk there for the fun of it, for the fresh air, for the exercise, but for the view-points it is a waste of time !
From the station in the village Semmering you can walk 15,5 km to Klamm or to Glocknitz in a total distance of 23 km No special equipment is needed, good hiking-boots are advisable at some places, a map or at least the free leaflet of the tourist-office will help you to find your way.
It might also make sense to have a timetable of the trains with you, so you can hop on a train in order to skip a part of the hike or return the easy way.
