Fantastic view of the Tannheimer Tal & Co. Very beautiful summit cross.
Ascent from the north-west is a bit more demanding (T3 demanding mountain hike).
The route from the southeast should also be feasible for the inexperienced (T2 mountain hikes).
Parking at Vilsalpsee is limited until 10 a.m. Alternatively, there is bus service from Tannheim or you can start hiking directly across the Roßalpbachtal. Then a detour to the Vilsalpe & a little cooling off in the Vilsapsee is worthwhile.

The summit of the Gaishorn is more than worth the climb ... To the south there is an amazing view of several mountain ranges. To the horizon .... 😍
To the north, the view goes down towards Tannheim or then, to the north-east, the entire Nagelfluh chain in view!
The ascent is best done from the north side. The ascent is categorized as T3. This classification fits perfectly, it is very bumpy and steep in places, sometimes with small scrapes with manual use. No wire rope safety devices available. Sure-footedness is an absolute prerequisite, when it is wet, only hike there with properly adherent shoes!
The descent is then classified as T2 on the south side, without further difficulties, but takes a long time. However, you are easily distracted by the fantastic views of the mountains and the Vilsalpsee.
Definitely hike! 😉👍
