Rossbrand - Der Späher


The Scout was a close and important ally of the Benevolent Queen: he recognised the signs of the times at an early stage and could interpret them correctly. He was a visionary and a great optimist. He taught the ruler that life is in constant flux. It’s imperative to keep calm and to make the right decisions at the right time.

The Scout and the Salzburger Summit Game

Hikers can learn peace, composure and foresight from the Scout. As an optimist he consciously sets his sight on the beautiful and good things in life. As everything is a question of perspective and perfect timing.

Speciality of the Rossbrand

The Rossbrand counts as one of the most beautiful mountains for views in the Alps with a magnificent 360-degree panorama. Those who don’t want to hike up can take the bus or drive up by car almost as far as the summit plateau.

The ritual on the Rossbrand

Simply lie down on the ground, feel the earth beneath you and observe the sky: the ritual on the Rossbrand is a guide to relaxed idleness and can be combined with a fun stone oracle, which helps with important decisions.

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.
