Since 1893 there has been a cog railway running up Schafberg from St. Wolfgang am Wolfgangsee. The mountain station lies
50 m below the 1,783 m summit. It is a pleasant two-storey modern functional building which was constructed in the 1980s. From here, it only takes 10 minutes to walk up to the summit which affords unforgettable views over the lakes in the Salzkammergut when the weather is good.
