For the first time, a festively glowing train set will make its way through the wintry mountain forests all the way up to the Schafbergalm station (middle station) at 1,364 m above sea level. There you will not only find an decorated kiosk and hot drinks but also an impressive view over the magical landscape of the Salzkammergut. 

Christmas locomotive with a Christmas look

You are sure to be magically surprised! For the first time, a whole train on the SchafbergBahn cog railway will be fully decked out for Christmas. Many, many small lights will turn the train into a festive attraction in its own right, guaranteed to light up the eyes of visitors big and small. An experience that is just as spectacular up-close as it is from a distance, with the illuminated train chugging slowly but surely up the mountain. Literally taking the enchantment of Advent to whole new heights.
