Get in, enjoy the ride!

SchafbergBahn im Salzkammergut

Season 2020

In compliance with current safety regulations, you are required to wear a facemask covering your mouth and nose in the platform area, in the station forecourt and during your entire ride up and down the mountain on the SchafbergBahn cog railway. At this time, we are filling 70 of the 105 available seats on the train. However, please note that on the SchafbergBahn cog railway, as on other forms of public transportation, standard social distancing rules may not necessarily be enforced. The legal foundation is as follows:

Regulations applying to cableways, cog railways, tour coaches and excursion ships

  • When being transported on cableways, cog railways, tour coaches and excursion ships, people must maintain a minimum distance of 1 meter from fellow passengers who do not live in the same household. Passengers must wear face protection covering the mouth and nose.

  • A social distance of less than 1 meter may be permissible due to the number of passengers as well as when getting on and off.
