Reputed to be the first mountain railway built with a standard gauge track in the whole of Europe, a ride in the Semmering railway is a must. It is often called the world’s first true mountain railway as the terrain and altitude difference was a huge challenge during its construction. Its construction took around six years, from 1848 to 1854, and the contribution of more than 20,000 workers. The track is a brilliant man-made marvel which include 14 tunnels, 16 viaducts, 11 small iron bridges and over a 100 curved stone bridges. A ride in this trail is exciting, but the most unforgivable experience is to go hiking through Semmering, watching this marvel from afar. The view of the track is splendid, something that you won’t be able to see anywhere else.

  • Linia kolejowa na Semmering, zbudowana w latach 1848-1854, należy do największych osiągnięć sztuki inżynierskiej początków kolejnictwa. Pokonuje ona wysokogórską trasę o długości 41 km. Dzięki doskonałości konstrukcyjnej tuneli, wiaduktów i innych obiektów, linia kolejowa służy nieprzerwanie do czasów obecnych. Przecina ona wspaniały krajobraz górski, w który wtapiają się liczne domy wypoczynkowe powstałe, kiedy - dzięki budowie linii kolejowej - w okolice zaczęli napływać turyści.
