Mountain tour on the Trisselwand

Open
The most beautiful view of the entire Ausseerland can be experienced on the path from the Tressensattel to the Trisselwand.
The Trisselwand rises impressively from Lake Altaussee, a challenge for climbers.

A rewarding mountain tour with magnificent viewpoints to Dachstein, Sarstein, Loser and the Tote Gebirge, the mountains of the nearby Enns Valley and the Schladminger Tauern high above the Trisselwand.

More information

The journey to Grundlsee is best planned with google.at/maps.
The starting point is the parking lot at the Tressensattel. Walk back a short distance on the asphalt road and then turn left from the Trisselwand inn onto alpine trail no. 233. It first leads up over a meadow slope and continues through moderately steep high forest terrain. The well-marked red-white-red alpine trail leads through the so-called "Loitzl Kluft" ascending above the tree line and offers magnificent views of the Dachstein, Lake Altaussee and Lake Grundlsee.

Further on the trail leads over a traverse in the rock, the so-called "Riebeisen", over steep rocks and a few hairpin bends in loose scree to the north. Passing the Ahornkogel on the left at an altitude of 1,687 meters, you now enter a wide basin through which the trail runs flat. Continue to a fork in the trail, which you follow on the left, alpine trail no. 233, through mountain pine stands and after about 500 meters you reach the summit of the Trisselberg (1,755 m).

The descent follows the same path.
