If you will be heading to the Semmering ski resort then you will need to take a taxi on from on Semmering Bahnhof (the station), there are no buses and it is a 20-25 min walk to the main ski lift.
Special tickets are available on OBB that combine the train journey between Wien/Vienna and Semmering and the ski-lift passes.
The final 10 - 15 mins of the journey is over the most spectacular part of The Semmeringbahn Railway, so wonderful that it's a U.N.E.S.C.O. World Heritage Site - though that's partially due to the construction methods and not just because of the scenery.
The best views can be seen from the left of the train (when facing the direction of travel) after departure from Wiener Neustadt.
