Raucheck is with 2.431m the highest mountain in the Tennengebirge, Eastern Alps, in Salzburg, Austria. It is one of several mountains on the huge plateau of the Tennengebirge. The summit is quite flat and easy to reach from the plateau, although the ways to get up to the plateau are quite long and more difficult.
The best time to hike Raucheck is from June to October, when there is not to much snow anymore.
