THE GERZKOPF
(1.728m)

The Bearer of Secrets was a powerful ally of the Benevolent Queen. Her wishes and secrets were in his good hands: he took care of them like treasure, ridiculed nothing and took every one of them seriously. But not only that: when the Queen lost sight of her wishes, he reminded her to reset her focus.

The Bearer of Secrets and
the Salzburger Summit Game

The Bearer of Secrets wants to encourage you to define your wishes. For wishes to be fulfilled, you must actively work towards them. Thus, the Bearer of Secrets teaches us to be clear about our wishes and to express them properly.

Speciality of the Gerzkopf

Right on the summit of the Gerzkopf there is a highly sensitive and extremely rare nature reserve, where amongst other things, mountain cocks, dragonflies and tree pipits all enjoy their natural habitat. Plus there’s a mysterious legend surrounding the “Black Lake“: you can read all about on an info board on site.

The ritual on the Gerzkopf

The ritual of the Bearer of Secrets is all about your secret wishes. Right on the summit you’ll find a great opportunity to define your wishes and to profess them to the wind.

at a glance

What is the Salzburger Summit Game all about?

The Salzburger Summit Game invites you to conquer the seven peaks of the Salzburger Sportwelt by yourself. You can purchase the “starter pack“ consisting of drinking cup, tour book and hiking map in the local Tourist Offices: the tour book includes interesting information about all the summits plus thoughts for along the way. It provides space for personal entries too. At all the summits you’ll find a summit book, in which you can leave a personal entry and where you‘ll find the ritual.

Which resorts are part of the Salzburger Summit Game?

All resorts of the Salzburger Sportwelt are part of the Salzburger Summit Game: that is the resorts of Eben, Filzmoos, Radstadt, Flachau, Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, Wagrain-Kleinarl and St. Johann in Salzburg. You can purchase the “starter packs“ for the Salzburger Summit Game from the Tourist Offices in all of these resorts.

Wer sind die „Wohlwollende Königin und ihre Edelmänner“?

Die „Wohlwollende Königin und ihre Edelmänner“ waren einst eine mächtige Herrscherin und ihre weisen Berater. Mittlerweile längst versteinert, erinnert heute die sieben Berge Bischofsmütze, Penkkopf, Hochgründeck, Saukarfunktel, Gerzkopf, Rossbrand und Lackenkogel an die Legende.

How difficult are the tours?

The tours are all easy to medium difficult and can be undertaken by adults as well as children. There are no climbing passages or exposed spots.

What are the rituals all about?

For each summit a ritual has been concepted around the peculiarities of the Queen, the Noblemen and their messages to us human beings. Thus, for example, the Bearer of Secret’s ritual concerns our most secret wishes, the Poet’s ritual concerns our talents and the Magician’s ritual is all about leaving your comfort zone. The rituals should be taken as an invitation or inspiration and are not obligatory.
