Göll massif Kuchl

The jewel in Kuchl's crown is the mountain Hoher Göll. This mighty rocky mountain, also known as the sacred mountain, with its monumental massif, can be seen from every corner of Kuchl and towers over the Salzach Valley at a height of more than 2,500 metres. The border between the Tennengau region and the Berchtesgadener Land runs along its peak, in other words, the border between Austria and Germany.

The Hoher Göll is very popular with mountain climbers – but it requires alpine experience, physical fitness, a strong foothold and a head for heights. As well as being a significant feat for experienced hikers, the Hoher Göll is also known for its myths and legends and is a site where visitors come to feel the power of nature.

You can find numerous route suggestions and tips on the Tennengau hiking map with hiking book – available from the Kuchl Tourism Association!
