Hiking Around Fuschlsee Then Up Schober-Frauenkopf Mountain

Salzburg, Austria

The Map

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started and finished at the Fuschl am See Brunnerwirt bus stop (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 17.5km (10.9mi) in about 7.5hr. The loop around Fuschlsee is 10.7km (3.5hr) while the Schober-Frauenkopf section is 6.8km (4hr).
  • Grade: Medium for the loop around Fuschlsee while difficult for the Schober-Frauenkopf Mountain. The loop around Fuschlsee is flat and the path well maintained, but I placed it in medium due to the length. Reaching the summit of Schober-Frauenkopf Mountain is difficult. It is steep and there are hazardous sections of rockfall. The path to the west of Schober has chain assisted rock climbs, so I suggest going up this section as going down might be difficult (but that's just my opinion).
  • Date Walked: 23rd of May 2019

The Story
