Day Trip, Vienna: 2 reviews and 4 photos

  Rax, seen from "Schneeberg" in Lower Austria
by WStat

I agree to heksli's proposal (also to the "Buchteln"-meal), but would also recommend the second choice, the "house mountain of the Viennese", "Rax" !
Rax is a mountain equal to the "Schneeberg", but with the advantage of a funicular, bringing you in about 8 minutes to the top in an altitude of 1600 meters above sealevel.
You start your journey at Vienna's "South Station" ("Südbahnhof") taking a train to Payerbach-Reichenau.You'll be in Payerbach in about 1.5 hours, The trains on the busy south-track can be caught every 30 minutes. So you could easily take a roundtrip and spend a beautiful day in the Austrian Alps !
Have a nice stay!
