Goasberg Joch

Panorama and pasture trail

Gaisberg is known as the sports mountain in the Kitzbühel Alps. In winter, the options range from skiing and tobogganing all the way to ski touring and ice climbing. But in summer, too, Kirchberg’s local mountain has plenty to offer. Such as the Lisi Osl Trail, a lightning downhill run, as well as many additional mountain bike routes. The best way to discover the attractions of Gaisberg Mountain is on foot.

Fauna and flora

“Gais” (in Brixental dialect “Goas”) means a goat or a female chamois. The name of the mountain can probably be traced back to these animals. The inaccessible mountain pine slopes and rockfalls on the west side are the ideal habitat for chamois.
Rarities such as black grouse and hazel grouse are very shy and thus difficult to spot. Common raven, but also raptors can almost always be spotted somewhere along the circular hike, and frequently golden eagles also come to visit here from Rettenstein Mountain.

Thanks to this geological situation, you can also experience on this circular trail the lovely shift of
limestone and silicate flora, as beautiful as hardly found anywhere else. Around Wiegalm Lodge, for example,
the trail runs exactly along this border and with just a few steps you can traverse 200 million years!
Especially in spring and early summer the slopes of Gaisberg with their many orchids, gentian, auricula and quite a few other floral
rarities make for a splendid sea of flowers.
