Walking and biking paradise
In summer the Semmering holiday region stands for endless cycling and mountain biking: a real heaven especially for downhill and free-ride mountain bikers. More leisurely routes are located on the valley bottom. Walkers and hikers choose from a myriad of excellent walking trails and hiking paths for all preferences. Nature exploration, fresh and healthy air plus uninterrupted panoramic views await you at the scenic Milleniumswarte vantage point, overlooking the Rax-Semmering-Schneeberg mountain range, the Viennese Basin and Lake Neusiedlersee.
A highlight not to be missed is a ride in the historical Semmeringbahn railway dating back to the year 1854. Later it was declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage. A splendid hiking trail leads along the scenic Ghega Railway Track Hike. A monument of the designer Carl Ritter von Ghega can be found at the Semmering train station, as well as a small but fine Semmeringbahn Museum.
