Don’t miss the view on the way up of the town of St. Gilgen and the lake. You can ride up and hike/walk down or ride back down. There is a cafe at the top.

Pick a day with good visibility and ideally sunshine. Be prepared to queue on such a day and then you can climb aboard the 4-person gondola style cars to the summit. Well early the summit; it's a bit of a walk to the very top....More

A little walk from the cable car and you get a great panoramic view around the whole are. The cars are a bit small and old but are well maintained. Its a continual system so there are always cars going up and down.

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.

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
