Ascent Trip Report

One beautiful afternoon on r family holiday we took th historic Schafbergbahn (train) up to the top station. A climb of 5 minutes took us to the highest point and a wonderful panorama over the Salzkammergut. The Hoher Dachstein was the dominant peak to be seen. My 7 month old son was pleased with the grass to lie on, and the baby carrier from which to view the world. Highly recommended with a choice of 2 terraces on which to sit and drink beer ;-).
