"A 161 years old bridge" Austria Off The Beaten Path Tip by omehes

Austria Off The Beaten Path: 171 reviews and 386 photos

  The historic bridge
by omehes
 
 

While you visit Semmering and its ski resort, cross the resort and drive down a narrow and winding road towards Steinhaus. Apart from the scenic route and nice wooden pub, you come across a high bridge with many arcs built during the 1848 revolution which shook the Austro-Hungarian Empire. It stands in a beautiful and peaceful area only few kilometres away from the resort.
