Hiking in Salzburg

A road snakes up to 1287m Gaisberg, where stellar views of the Salzburg Valley, the Salzkammergut lakes, the limestone Tennengebirge range and neighbouring Bavaria await. The best way to appreciate all this is on the 5km round-the-mountain circuit trail. Salzburgers also head up here for outdoor pursuits, from mountain biking to cross-country skiing.

Bus 151 (€3.70, 27 minutes) runs at least every two hours in summer from Mirabellplatz to Gaisberg. From November to March the bus only goes as far as Zistelalpe, 1.5km short of the summit.
