I visited Schafberg in the mourning, but it was cloudy. So I had to wait until the sky is clear enough to enjoy the view from the top of the mountai. I killed time with walking, eating and drinking. 2 hours later, the sky got clear at last.
There is cafe on the top of the mountain. But it's expensive. I recommend you have something to eat.

The trip to the Schafberg is a must do if you are in Salzkammergut. We went at peek time in the morning on a sunny day. But capacity is managed by adding trains to the planned schedule, and two full trains went up together. Be prepared for a drop of 10° compared to the starting point at the lake. Makse sure to also have a wind breaker with you. The trip in the train is worth the high price and the fantastic view on three lakes comes on top of it. Sitting left will give you a better view on the first part of the way up; but sittilng right has the best view on the last stretch higher up. So both sides are OK (and the reverse applies on the way down). If you do not take a consumption at the hotel-café on top, 45 minutes is sufficient to walk around and enjoy the view.

We eventually arrived here after nearly 2 hours driving from Salzburg and were able to park the car in the last remaining parking space at the railway station. €82 later we had our tickets and after a brief stop for an ice cream we boarded the train.
The train had 2 large carriages but we were lucky enough to get two rows to ourselves. Progress was slow (it is a pretty steep mountain, 1700m at the final station) and it barely created a breeze inside on this baking hot day where we all had to wear damned sweat masks. After about half an hour we got off at the summit station. On the way up we'd seen swathes of trees, seemingly clinging to bare rock and beautiful Austrian chalets on the hillsides as well as the occasional masochistic hiker that insisted on walking up in 35 degree heat.
I expected to just take a couple of pictures and then head to the cafe but even my cycnical city head was awestruck by the sheer majesty of the lakes and mountains. All the cliches were there, azure blue lakes, jagged mountain peaks and nutters on paragliders. Every corner we took opened up a new vista so we walked for about an hour just enjoying the scenery. This was despite some hugely vertigo inducing sights and absolutely no safety precautions!
We then went into the summit cafe for an ice cream coffee for me and another puritan black coffee for Deb. We sat on the terrace enjoying the shade of the umbrella and the sugar rush from the ice cream before joining the queue for the train down the mountain.

If you are near Salzburg on a clear day, don’t miss the chance to visit the Schafberg area and the surrounding lakes and villages (also known as the Salzkammergut). The views are stunning. If you have time, take the Schafbergbahn (the train station is in Sankt Wolfgang) which takes you to a fabulous lookout to the top of Schafberg, high above several beautiful lakes.

You go to St Wolfgang then take the cog railway to the top. It is fun and beautiful. Breath taking view of the Austrian Alps and surrounding lakes.

With wonderful panoramic landscapes enhanced by the clear sunlight we very much enjoyed our time and walk on the mountain.

At over 1700 metres, the scenic vistas of the lake and multitude of Alpine peaks dissolving into the far distance were memorable.

Visited at the beginning of May and still in the morning, so with minimal people. We went up with the Schafbergbahn. We bought tickets online. The trip took about 30 minutes. Due to the remaining snow, we could not use the red route 04,18, E4, which we had originally chosen, for the descent. Finally, we went down route 04,20, E4 via the Schafbergalm to the village of Pucha. From there via Wolfgangweg and Wanderrouten Wolfgangsee to St. Wolfgang.
Beautiful views of the lake, the Dachstein and other peaks, flowery meadows, wild garlic plantations and much more.
Due to the time and date when we visited Schafberg, we did not stumble upon the crowds of tourists. On the contrary, we went the vast majority of the way alone.
