For those who want to take it easy, ascend the mountain via the cable car. If you are an experienced hiker, then you can reach the summit along one of several paths. From Grödig-Fürstenberg you can take Trail 461 via the Schweigmühlenalm and the Großer Eiskeller to the Mittagsscharte, or directly to the summit of the Salzburger Hochthron. From Grödig-Glanegg, Trail 417 takes you to the summit via the Geiereck, and Trail 460 leads past the Zeppezauerhaus at 1,668 meters.
Atop the Untersberg are numerous hiking and walking trails for those who rode up on the cable car.
