The Semmering Ski Resort webcam shows you the oldest European ski resort, open for the winter season between December and mid-April. With one of the best lighting systems in Europe, it offers several km of slopes for a night ski, daytime ski, and racing ski. And when there is no snow, this is still a great place for hiking and bike riding. Famous for its skiing, 1,000 meters above sea level, Semmering, in the state of Lower Austria, hosted the Alpine Skiing World Cup several times. This winter sports area, surrounded by nature, is also trendy in the summer months for recreational sports and is the perfect silent retreat for artists. The Semmering Railway opened in 1854, and 2005 was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for its spectacular wild and romantic scenery.
