One of the highlights of a visit to St Wolfgang is to take the famous Cog Wheel Railway up to the Schafberg mountain just next to the town. If you are taking the Postbus bus, there is a bus stop just in front of the railway station at the bottom of the mountain. The train leaves about every one hour and the journey takes about 1 hour. As it is normally crowded during summer months, it is advisable to go early and make a reservation first. If you want to see nice scenery, sit on the left side of the train (queue early so that you can get the best seats). More information and photos are at my VT Schafberg page, the prices of the train ride are:

Train to top of Schafberg mountain (14 euros one way, 24 euros return)
Train to Schafbergalpe, middle stop (11 euros one way, 20 euros return)
Train from middle stop to top of mountain (5.40 euros one way, 10.80 euros return)
Children 6-14 years of age (50% discount of above prices)

If you are also interested to take the boat rides on Wolfgangsee lake together with the above train ride, combo tickets are available around 30 euros return and this can save you money. More information is at the attached brochure, prices will change with each year and season.
