The cable car is required to get up to the top of the mountain - it’s an experience in itself! Make sure you have a jumper or jacket.

Great walks at the top, and choice of cafes. Fantastic views, I think you can walk back down to St Gilgen if energetic enough.

Despite being a bit pricey (26 eur/pers), if it's worth the money. The view from the top is amazing and the feeling of "riding" the vintage cable car cabins is priceless. Who knows, maybe they will retire them soon and then the experience will be...More

This was a highlight of our trip! Based on a TripAdvisor recommendation, we chose the Zwolferhorn over Untersberg because it was on our way to Hallstatt. We had a beautiful, clear day and the views were so amazing it almost didn’t look real.

There is a hiking route from St Gilgen to the top of the Zwoelferhorn. The total ascent is around 900m and length around 3km so it is a decent walk uphill and a fairly steep gradient.

If you're reaching up even at 3 pm and if you enjoy the views in minimal time, in my opinion it might be too late to start hiking down at that time. I am no expert so recommend wait and see what a local expert would say... More
