Semmering is in Lower Austria. It is the best known alpine resort in eastern Austria. Its position next to the Semmering railway made it easily accessible from Vienna and at the fin-de-siecle several monumental hotels were raised in it.
The railway station has an exhibition regarding the Semmering railway which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The local church and several impressive hotels and villas originate from the end of the 19th century and are worth a visit. They are all located along the main road crossing the town and have a beautiful view of the Alps.
