Traditional - Alpine - Cultivated
We tell you stories of the mountains south of Vienna...
A region that is so rich in history like the one of Semmering-Rax-Schneeberg has many stories to tell...
People love stories, and we have the advantage of not being forced to invent some. So let us tell you about the following:
* Of fresh mountain air and summertime,
* Of skiing and climbing,
* Of ancient times and future dreams,
* Of adventures and peaceful talks,
* Of histories for young and old.
The region of the Semmering-Rax-Schneeberg mountains is one of the oldest destinations for tourism in Austria. A traditional target for the Viennese during the hot summer months as well as an inspiring retreat for artists, the region has made itself a name across the country. Today still, the regional architecture is marked by this period.
But also during the winter time, the villages around the Semmering-Rax-Schneeberg mountains are an ideal target for young people and families, leaving no wishes unfulfilled.
The three "home mountains of the Viennese", with their 2.000m in altitude, offer a first glance of the alpine landscape for people coming from the East. Countless ski tours, mountain top experiences, snow boot hiking tours and ski slopes invite you to a "mountainous" adventure - during the winter time.
Culture is also a buzzword in the Semmering-Rax-Schneeberg region during winter. Away from the slopes, various exhibitions, festivals and events continue to take place during the cold season. Culinary regional delights, like the famous "Jagatee" or scrambled eggs bread, leave no wishes unfulfilled either.
