Description of the 3 stage hikes:
Vom Weltkulturerbe bis ins Hochgebirge der Wiener Hausberge
In 3 day stages we'll hike from Semmering to the most beautiful buildings of the world cultural heritage, to the Rax and back to our starting point.
Stage 1: Semmering – Prein / Rax
We start our "tour to the past" at the Semmering station and will move along the railroad, which was named world cultural heritage and opened for passenger transport in 1554 after six years of construction. The health resort Semmering, the former "St. Tropez of the Alps" provides a variety of panorama views that are direct neighbours with architectural memorials. This arouses ones curiosity about former times, when people at Semmering celebrated as there's no tomorrow. Flora and fauna present themselves beautifully - forests and meadows we want to enjoy at full extend.
A historical day hike with clear-sighted perspectives.

We go past the timerline and will get to the high mountains of the Rax massive. The air becomes thinner, sunshine clearer, it's the peak of the landscape beauty. Edelweiss and gentian accompany us on the way the the herbal gardens at the rax.
