On Wednesday afternoon we plan an excursion to the nearby Mount Schafberg. We first take a boat ride on lake Wolfgangsee, and then a cog railway (http://www.schafbergbahn.at/) up the mountain, which offers a nice view of the surrounding area. We plan to go back by railway and boat again. The costs for the excursion will be approximately 30EUR. Please let us know, whether you intend to take part in this excursion.
