Getting There

Es gibt verschiedene Wege, um zum Klosterwappen (dem Gipfel des Schneeberges) auf 2.076 m zu gelangen, dem höchsten Gipfel in Niederösterreich. Neben dem Fußweg von Puchberg am Schneeberg zum Gipfel gibt es eine Zahnradbahn (Schneebergbahn), die einen auf 1.800 m und eine Sesselbahn, die einen auf 1.210 m bringt. Die beliebteste Route ist von der Bergstation der Zahnradbahn, während die schwierigste Route von der Edelweiss-Hütte (in der Nähe des Sessellifts, über Losenheim erreichbar) ist.

Restaurant at the summit railway station, as well as about 30min on the way to the summit (Damböckhaus) and on the summit plateau (Fischerhütte)

Book in advance if you are taking the train up (or down) - the morning and afternoon trains do get booked out. (We would have had to wait almost 2 hours for the first train up, but decided to walk instead) The chairlift is an alternative way up the mountain - it only runs on weekends outside the peak summer & winter months.

Puchberg am Schneeberg is well-serviced by train (approx 2 hours from Vienna) as well as car

First to Review

Fantastic walk and a great day-trip from Vienna... we walked all the way up from the Puchberg am Schneeberg; we should have taken the train so we had more time at the top! https://hikingtheworld.blog/2018/10/05/schneeberg-lower-austria/
