The Gaishorn is with 2,249 meters the highest mountain in the Tannheimer valley and the climb is a great mountain tour. If you do not want to get on and off the same way, you should climb over the longer path from north to the summit. The serpentine path over the boulder field, which leads here to the summit, is quite uncomfortable in the descent, while the way south to the Vilsalpe runs mainly over Berwiesen.

We went the tour from the car park west in Tannheim over the Älpele and the north side to the summit. The ascent in the boulder field has it all. The descent, also on the north side, was less exhausting than expected. Nevertheless, absolute concentration is needed.

Am the 02.09.2016 the same tour on Gaishorn gone. From today's perspective, I would go the other way round. So from the restaurant over Obere Roßalpe to the summit. As you know, it can be better on difficult terrain better uphill. The descent is then quite feasible even when the forces abate.

Very great tour that requires absolute certainty and condition on the last few meters. We started from Tannheim (car park West), past Alpe Älpele via mountain meadows to Gaishorn. The path branches off, to the right it goes over the Zierleseck (hint alpine dangers) over a ridge and a cow pasture to the ascent to the Gaishorn. Now it goes with easy climbing partly steeply uphill (steeper passages with wire rope) until one eventually reaches the last ridge to the summit. Above you can expect a wonderful view of the surrounding mountains and the Vilsalpsee. From above we are down to the Vilsalpsee and with the bus back to the parking lot.

The ascent to the Gaishorn over the Vilsalpsee is a delight to the landscape! From the Vilsalpsee it goes very steep, the descent towards Zierleseck requires surefootedness.
Refreshments: Vilsalpe, Obere Rossalpe, Gasthof am Vilsalpsee (Parking)
Note: The arrival and departure to and from the Vilsalpsee is by private car only until 10.00 clock and from 17.00 clock allowed. The eastern shore is currently closed due to a rock fall.

From Neu-Kienzen / Tannheim parking Unterhöfen the trail is very well signposted. It is given as 4.5 hours. You can easily make it in 3.5 hours. At first it goes through meadow-like forest sections. Then pastures follow and finally it gets rocky. In places I climbed over rocks. Absolute recommendation is to climb this page.
