Before we delve into the beauty of this enchanting spa village, we need to explain a little something. The two of us are extremely competitive! We pick a game and before you know it, we are at it, trying to outdo the other. Of course it's all in jest and it keeps us always laughing and teasing. Not sure if this is what keeps us so interested in the other at all times. But it works.
That's exactly what happened here in Semmering. One of the main wishlists of Ash when we visited Austria in Jan 2005 was to try his hand (or rather his foot) at skiing. He'd never done any before and he was so anxious, we just had to go and hope he didn't break his neck while at it! What follows is an account of this small trip of ours.
A few facts on Semmering:
~ 1000 m above sea level
~ 620 inhabitants
~ Located near an airport and a trainstation; in the midst of mountains
~ Very green in summer & very white in winter
~ Alpine skiing
~ Crosscountry skiing
~ Miniture Golf
~ Nordic Walking
- Pros:Close to Vienna; excellent for a daytrip.
- Cons:No skiing miniatures sold as momentos at the gift shop
- In a nutshell:Really nice getaway from the city.
If you came to Austria to experience a Viennese winter, but feel like a day of fun in the snow, the Semmering is... more travel advice
Semmering has a railway station where more than 20 trains stop per day coming in from the direction of Vienna or Graz.... more travel advice
