Austria’s most acclaimed rail- and cableway operators are quality-certified as “Beste Österreichische Sommer-Bergbahnen”. Since spring 2020, the SchafbergBahn cog railway has also been a proud member of this initiative sponsored by the Austrian Chamber of Commerce.  


This prestigious seal of quality is only awarded to those companies that meet a set of 160 basic criteria, who have specialized in one of five specific themes – Adventure, Family, Panorama & Nature Experiences, Dining, Art & Culture – and who are successfully able to recertify every three years.

This guarantees quality, creates market differentiation and assures positive guest experiences. Furthermore, this seal of quality in combination with various “theme mountains” facilitates finding ideal summertime rail- and cableways that fully meet guests’ individual holiday expectations.

The SchafbergBahn cog railway has been recognized for its "Panorama & Nature Experiences". Anyone who has ever taken a ride on the SchafbergBahn cog railway already knows: During the ride up the mountain on the steepest cog railway in Austria, passengers are treated to wonderful views of the Salzkammergut. And once at the top, the surrounding lakes glisten in the sunshine and your eyes roam from the Bohemian Forest in the North to the Alps in the south. This seal of quality is an additional guarantee that nature lovers will be astonished by the impressive mountain panoramas and natural wonders here in the heart of the Salzkammergut.
