Gaisberg is a mountain to the east of Salzburg, Austria. It belongs to the Osterhorngruppe (a part of the Limestone Alps) between the Lammertal valley and the Wolfgangsee. A public bus route starting from the Mirabellplatz square links the popular destination for winter sport, hiking, mountain biking, and paragliding to the city centre. A 100 m high FM and TV transmitter facility, the Gaisberg Transmitter, which was built in 1956, is located on its top. From 1887 until 1928 a rack railway, the Gaisbergbahn, provided easy access from the city to the top of the mountain until it was replaced in 1929 by a road.

Gaisberg Transmitter is a facility for FM and TV-transmission on the Gaisberg mountain near Salzburg, Austria. It was the first large transmitter in Austria finished after the war and started its work on 22 August 1956 (however, a provisional transmitter already broadcast a VHF radio signal since 1953 with 1kW). It used a 73 metre high lattice tower and broadcast Austria’s first radio station on 99.0MHz and third radio station on 94.8 MHz, each with 50 kW, as well as a TV station on channel 8 with 60/12 kW (picture/sound). During the 1980s an UHF antenna was put on top of the tower bringing its height to 100 meters.
