The “World Culture with Mountain Views - Cultural Highlights from Semmering to Rax” package is wonderful opportunity to combine a visit to the Lower Austria State Exhibition with a short holiday following in the footsteps of great thinkers.

On the Thursday, when you arrive, a visit to the Lower Austrian State Exhibition is on the agenda. Evening tickets to an event at the Literatursalon Wartholz or the Thalhof wortwiege as part of the “Kultur.Sommer.Semmering” (Culture.Summer.Semmering) season will be reserved for you.
On Friday, take a philosophical walk along the Raxplateau. After a cable car ride up the Rax, walk in the footsteps of Viktor Frankl with local philosopher Prof Dr Thomas Haderlapp.

On Saturday, take a guided cultural hike from Semmering station via the so-called “villa colony” to the legendary Südbahnhotel, which once hosted the greats of its time in art, politics and science. From the “20-Schilling-Blick”, follow in the footsteps of Karl Ritter von Ghegas and head towards the Kurhaus Semmering hotel. During a visit to this historically significant building, you will hear exciting anecdotes about the Imperial and Royal Era. Feeling refreshed thanks to some coffee and cake in the historic ambience of the Kurhaus Semmering, the hike continues along the UNESCO World Heritage Route, both over and under impressive viaducts, to the world's only “Ghega Museum”. Then, travel back to Semmering on the famous UNESCO World Heritage Site Semmering Railway.

If you did not visit the Lower Austrian State Exhibition on your day of arrival, you can do so on Sunday, the day of your departure.
