SchafbergBahn, St. Wolfgang

Tour · Scenic Railroad
Featured in the film "The Sound of Music," SchafbergBahn offers a comfortable journey to the top of the mountain, where you can take in panoramic views over the Lake District. The terminal at the top of the mountain has nearby restaurants and is surrounded by rocky walking paths, so be sure to wear shoes with good traction. Tickets are purchased on a timed basis, and there is heavy demand for mid-morning departures, so plan your visit accordingly. For the best views, sit on the left-hand side on the way up and the right-hand side on the way down. Note that only one-way tickets are available for purchase, so remember to book your return journey once you reach the top. Make SchafbergBahn part of your personalized St. Wolfgang itinerary using our St. Wolfgang road trip planning website.
