One of the most magnificent part of the Austrian-German border is the Untersberg, the pride and proud of the people of Salzburg. Its history is overcrowded with mythical creatures like emperors with ever-growing beards, dwarfs, witches and pretty mountain women who wear only white and like to pick handsome young humans to father them some children.
Just take the cable car and simply vanish in Nothing.
Once safely arrived at the top, try to find your way in the fog without falling down from rocks into invisible depths.
Admire the alpine flora and some leftover objects of the human civilisation.
Reach the Geiereck (Vulture’s Corner).
Look over Austria…

Oh well. Maybe you’d better visit this place on a nice and sunny summer day instead of at the beginning of Fog Season, which with its ten months per year is the longest season in Salzburg.
Wait for the sun to come out.
Go over to another peak, the Salzburger Hochtron. Meet (the signs of) fellow travellers, pass memorials for the fallen members of the WW2 Mountain Troops and people who failed at hiking the same trail you’re walking right now.
Do you see the tiny cross at the top? That’s your destination.
Now you are at the top pf the world, high above the clouds, where the sky is always blue and the sun always shines.
