The Gaisberg - home mountain of the Salzburgers

The highest elevation in the city of Salzburg

In summer, the Gaisberg attracts road biking, mountain biking, SlowBiking, hiking and paragliding. A highlight in summer is the Gaisberg race for historic automobiles. In winter, ski tours and cross-country skiing are on the agenda: hiking trails and touring routes are prepared, and the cross-country trails are groomed almost daily.

Numerous restaurants and hotels invite you to stop, enjoy or spend your vacation: The Zistelalm, Gersbergalm the Kasnocknwirt (formerly Gasthof Mitteregg), the rustic Rauchenbühelhütte of the Friends of Nature and at the summit the Wirtschaft am Spitz and Kohlmayr"s Gaisbergspitz.

Gaisberg line bus 151 directly from Mirabellplatz via the Gnigl district to the Gaisberg. From up there, you have a wonderful panoramic view over the city of Salzburg into the Salzburg Lake District, into neighboring Bavaria and to the south to the Göll Massif and the Tennen Mountains.

Hiking on the Gaisberg

Among the most popular hikes is the Gaisberg circular hiking trail at the height of the Zistel, which leads around the Gaisberg in five kilometers or the Zistelrunde with a length of 2.5 kilometers.

All hiking trails on the Gaisberg are well marked.
