Whilst on a break in Vienna, we decided to visit Rax-seilbahn. I was desperate to find a decent amount of snow, and I was not disappointed. The €23 euro round ticket was well worth the price. When we arrived mid afternoon, we were the only people there so we got to ride in the cable car alone. On reaching the... More

Not a cheap lift, but crowded. It 'goes up sharply and high. So if you are afraid of heights, don't stand next to the window. If you've got mass horror, don't stand in the middle. If you've got both, it'll be a really defining experience for you... But the views from the top is great, the trails are not difficult,... More

Parking space is enough. (free parking) Tickets 26 EUR adults, free for children under 6. When you purchase the tickets up and down be sure to be there on the chosen time to get down, as you cannot go sooner. You will need all day long to visit all the sights up the mountain so go early.

€26 for the round trip in packed cable car where you are squeezed like a fish in a can is a bit too much. Everything is only written in German, not a word in English. Even the booking machine for the journey time was in German. Nice walk up there to the nearest cottage Otto's house. They only accepted either... More

At around €23 for the round-trip, this is not cheap - but nor is it extortionate. Do not expect any comfort in the little cabin: you are likely to be packed in like sardines. The ride is neither scary nor a great deal of fun. However, the views from the top make up for it all - as do the... More

A pleasant ride to the top of the mountain, pretty expensive for 22 euros, but worth the visit! A pretty decent restaurant directly at the top with outside tables with a perfect view! 10 degrees colder then in the valley so definitely worth the trip :)

Tje funicular is fast and take you to tje top of the Rax plateao form where you can walk through the Rax plateau. The only problem is that there are no other lifts to the hills. The nature at the Rax top is wonderfull

Near Reichenau there is the Preiner Wand mountain at 1783 meters. With a good map you can see where the hike paths start from. There are 3, the one in the middle in a via ferrata (need equipment for that). The good thing is if you go with family or friends that are not up to hike 2 hours up... More
