Gaisberg-loop walking tours
The Gaisberg is often designated as the “balcony of the city of Salzburg”, in particular the Gaisberg- loop walking tours, which is located about 1000 meters above sea level in a length of 5 km around the peak of the mountain, the name comes true.
Who ever wants to get away from the city-air to enjoy nature or practice a sport finds the right possibility here. The loop walking tour begins at the Hotel Zistelalm. Here you have the possibility of walking to the right or to left. You walk partly trough the woods, then you can savour the beautiful view into the valley. On the beginning of the way, if you circle the mountain clockwise, you can see the Schlenken and the Schmittenstein. Later you have a beautiful view on the Watzmann as well as the city of Salzburg with the Untersberg right behind it. Shortly before you return to the start of the beginning you have a beautiful view of the mountains of the close-by Salzkammergut.
Due to the minimal difference of height the Gaisberg-loop walking tour is suitable for seniors and children. The easy walk will take about one and a half hours.
