Alpine Style Austrian Food atop a Mountain + Hiking in Salzburg | Day Trip to Gaisberg, Austria



Join us for a day trip to Gaisberg and a delicious alpine-style lunch atop a mountain! This is one of the easiest day trips from Salzburg and the mountain views are spectacular.

We really wanted to go hiking while we were in Salzburg and Gaisberg proved to be a super easy day trip. Gaisberg is a local mountain in Salzburg located just a few kilometres from the Old Town, and it stands 1,288 meters above sea level.

To get there, we took bus # 151 from Mirabellplatz. It was a 30-minute bus ride and we got off at Zistelalm to hike the rest of the way to the top. There were various trails to choose from all varying in length and level of difficulty. There were some steep trails that lead straight to the top and others that zig-zagged at a lesser incline. Hiking in Gaisberg was very easy and enjoyable, and the best part, was the alpine restaurant on the mountain top!

We ate at Goasn Wirtshaus, where we ordered Marend, a casual snack usually served on a wooden block, that includes a mix of mountain cheeses, cured meats, sausages, lard spreads and bread. This one also had grapes, lingonberries, olives, walnuts, eggs – basically, everything you could possibly want from a snacking board! Aside from that, we also got the Kasnocken (the Austrian version of Käsespäztle) which consists of noodles in a pan with melted cheese and crispy onions. And because we had just climbed a mountain, we also enjoyed two steins of beer! It was the perfect alpine-style lunch and we left more than satisfied.

So, if you find yourself visiting Salzburg and are craving a bit of nature, consider a day trip to Gaisberg!
