Hohe Göll (Goll) is a very impressive mountain in the Northern Calcareous Alps. It carries the northernmost glaciers of the Alps and offers a spectacular ski run through the east face.

On the northeast side is the hut Purtschellerhaus. The name of the hut is in memoriam for Purtscheller, one of the most famous mountaineers in the 19th century, who along with Hans Meyer was the first to reach the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Hoher Göll can be reached only by scrambling. From Purtschellerhaus scramble to begin of the Goelleiten. Over this steep rubble slope to the summit. 3 1/2 h.

Other possibility : From Berchtesgaden with public bus service to Kehlstein (5869 ft). From there over the ridge Mannlgrat (wire-ropes) scrambling to beginning of Gölleiten and further like above written. 3 h Descent to south over a steep slope, then crossing rubble ravine, then scrambling uphill to the summit of Hohes Brett.(7482 ft). First walking, then scrambling down to hut Stahlhaus (appr. 5540 ft). 3 h. From Stahlhaus to Königssee 2 1/2 or 1 h uphill to mountain Jenner and by cable-car to Königssee.

Hoher Göll is a very long, alpine crossing. It is not a toy for newcomers!
