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.

 

Author’s recommendation

The Trisselwand is the first mountain that is accessible in spring and partly throughout the winter.

Destination

Grundlsee-Tressensattel

Turn-by-turn directions

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.

Author’s map recommendations

Hiking maps are available at the information offices in Ausseerland.

Equipment

Proper backpacking makes a lot of things easier. Pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within easy reach in a side pocket. All things that are often needed such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map belong on top. An emergency kit including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!
