"Gaisberg Mountain" Walking & hiking Tip by BLewJay

Walking & hiking, Salzburg: 17 reviews and 29 photos


After taking the tram to the top of Der Untersberg, we hopped in the car and headed to the other side ot the city...actually, to the top of Gaisberg Mountain. The Gaisberg is a mountain to the East of Salzburg and is easily identified by the massive antenna on top of it (the antenna is actually a sending station of the public broadcast system). The mountain itself is a favorite among locals and is an all year round destination for people who love to hike, bike or enjoy sports. The great thing about the mountain is that it's easy to get to the top...you can drive. The Gaisberg mountaintop is 1,300 metres high and is called the ?balcony of Salzburg? because you can see the Salzburg valley, surrounding mountains and the Wallersee Lake.
