Mountain lifts in Semmering-Hirschenkogel

Ski and toboggan day and night at the readily accessible Hirschenkogel, which regularly hosts the FIS World Cup.

Easily accessible from Vienna and Graz and well connected to public transport, the ski resort of Semmering is ideally suited for a day drip – and thanks to the floodlit night slopes, even after work. A reliable snowmaking machine ensures there is plenty of snow and the legendary panorama of the Semmering-Rax region is your constant skiing companion.

The comfortable gondola lift onto the Hirschenkogel and a modern 4-seater chairlift connect the 14 kilometres (approx. 8.7 miles) of snow-assured slopes of a range of difficulties – 6 slopes are floodlit and available for night-time skiing – Europe’s largest night skiing centre. Sporty skiers can carve up the World Cup run, where the women’s World Cup slalom and giant slalom take place every two years.

The 3 kilometre (approx. 1.9 mile) toboggan run from the Liechtensteinhaus near the mountain station down to the top of the pass – Austria’s longest toboggan run – makes for an unforgettable experience. This is also floodlit and is open late into the night.

New for 2021/22:

  • Attractive combo offers
  • Simple online booking
  • Season ticket advance booking from mid-October

The cross-country skiing offer is also impressive: the Semmering-Wechsel Panorama Trail is at an altitude of over 1,000 metres (approx. 3,280 feet), so it has guaranteed snow. Further trails around the pass complete the offer.

At the summit of the Hirschenkogel, at 1,350 metres (approx. 4,429 feet) above sea level, the Liechtensteinhaus mountain restaurant provides sustenance for skiers and tobogganists. The excellent food, the large sun terrace and the entertaining parasol bar make for an excellent and rejuvenating break. What could be better than a tobogganing session after a traditional après-ski evening.
