Gennerhorn is a 1.735m high summit in the Osterhorngruppe, Eastern Alps in Salzburg. In summer it is easy to reach without any difficulties. On the way from Laemmerbach you get to Genneralm with a lot of nice huts with good food. From there you can hike several mountains in the region like Osterhorn 1.746m, Hoher Zinken 1.764m, Gruberhorn 1.732m and Regenspitz 1.675m. It is also possible to reach Genneralm by car but it is a toll road.
You can hike Gennerhorn from Mai to October.
It's also a nice trip with skies in winter.



Gennerhorn, 1.735m


Way number 10 from Laemmerbach 801m leads you to Genneralm (around 1.300m). From there you go south and then west along the south-slope of Gennerhorn. At the notch between Gennerhorn and Gruberhorn 1.732m you go east to the summit of Gennerhorn.

In winter (with skies) you take the east slope of Gennerhorn. You go up to the rock face, then left through a breach and further on the ridge of Gennerhorn.
