This is a must if you are in part of Austria. It is the oldest (cog) railway in Austria. The ride is good excellent scenery. It is coal fired, but the smoke does not reach the two carriages.

A pristine lake fed by the glacier of the Rofan mountains. The Rofan seilbahn is within a hiking distance and is a good spot to stay and hike the alps and the famous eagle trail.
