Overview

Puchberg is only 50 miles from Vienna at the Eastern extreme of the Austrian Alps. It has a long standing reputation as a climatic health resort. Skiing at HochSchneeberg above Puchberg is largely thanks to the laborious construction of a funicular railway up from the village more than 110 years ago. The first scheduled train chugged into the Baumgartner station on June 1, 1897. Meanwhile, work on the upper rail section continued at a rapid pace, and on September 22, 1897 the entire stretch of railway was opened for use. A masterful feat of technology had been accomplished. Skiers can access two lifts, a chair or a drag lift, on what is Lower Austria's highest mountain, and which like the funicular railway have a salamander theme. These access five miles of runs graded easy or intermediate.
