Semmering gondola lift

Relaxation and adventure with plenty of panoramic views on the Hirschenkogel – ideal for hikers, families and athletes

Enjoy the distant view on a panoramic hike with the family? Or would you rather feel the adrenalin in the bike park or at the Millenium Jump? Many things are possible at Semmering in the Viennese Alps – even car-free thanks to public transport!

The modern 8-seater gondola lift also takes you up to the Hirschenkogel at 1,340 metres above sea level in summer. On clear days, the view stretches far and wide across the country. The Semmering is easily accessible without a car and can be reached in around 90 minutes from Vienna’s main railway station.

TIP for early risers: The Sunrise Hike on the Hirschenkogel along with breakfast at the “Liechtensteinhaus” and accompanied by hiking guides – before it’s back to the valley with the first gondola around 8 am.
