Enjoy an easy walk from Fuschl am See to St. Gilgen via the Mozartblick viewpoint
Your adventure begins with a leisurely walk in the direction of Wolfgangsee, through the Ellmautal valley and onto the Mozartblick viewpoint (824m). Enjoy a break here and take in the outstanding views of Lake Wolfgang and the Schafberg; a towering peak at 1,783m. Descend to St Gilgen, a pretty town that embraces its connections to Mozart, being his mother's hometown. Choose from one of the local restaurants for a hearty evening meal of local specialities and refreshing Austrian beer.
Depending on availability in Fuschl, you may be accommodated in St. Gilgen. There is a bus that goes from St. Gilgen to Fuschl to start the first hike (approx. 10 minutes). This is especially true in July and August for all arrivals on a Friday or Saturday.
In rainy weather, the trails can be muddy and slippery. Take footwear with good tread that gives you support.
Inquire about the current weather conditions (e.g. in your accommodation or at the local tourist information office) and watch the weather changes. Pay attention to any diversion information.
Please refrain from entering the pastures despite the diversion sign and follow the diversion until you are back on the regular path.

Book recommendations for this region:
We recommend that you wear well-worn hiking shoes with a good profile. In addition, a waterproof rain jacket and rain pants in bad weather and sunscreen and a sun hat in good weather.
Always take enough water with you (at least 1 litre). Hiking sticks can take the strain off your knees when climbing.
In your information package, you will find a detailed list of the hiking equipment you need, such as good hiking shoes, functional clothing, rain jackets and daypacks.
