Introducing Semmering

With its clean air and grandiose peaks rising out of deeply folded valleys, Semmering is a popular alpine resort for the Viennese, especially among a slightly older crowd who come to this spa town in summer for peaceful walks or to ride the railway; a younger set hits the ski pistes. There’s no real centre to the resort: it’s mostly ranged along Hochstrasse, which forms an arc behind the train station.
