From the Gänsbrunnweg, a narrow, quiet road leads uphill quite steeply (10% with peaks of 15%). Sometimes between fields, with beautiful views, sometimes through forests. Nice if you like trees.
At a certain moment you turn right on the Gaisbergweg, where the tarmac is as smooth as a billiard cloth. Only not so flat. There again a variation of forest and view, but you are pedalling so hard that you don't see much further than the handlebars.
On top again lots of views, and wind, but not over the center of Salzburg. There is a jump-off point for paragliders, but you don't see them on Thursday morning at half past nine. Not late August.
If you can handle the Gaisberg, you come to the Ventoux. The Gaisberg is probably a lot quieter, but gives less prestige, because nobody knows him of course.

Vanaf de Gänsbrunnweg ga je over een smalle, rustige weg behoorlijk steil (10% met uitschieters naar 15%) omhoog. Soms tussen akkers door, met mooie vergezichten, soms door bossen. Leuk als je van bomen houdt.
Op een gegeven moment ga je rechtsaf de Gaisbergweg op, waar het asfalt zo strak is als een biljartlaken. Alleen niet zo vlak. Ook daar weer een afwisseling van bos en uitzicht, maar je bent dan zo zwaar aan het trappen dat je niet veel verder kijkt dan je stuur.
Bovenop weer veel uitzicht, en wind, maar net niet over het centrum van Salzburg. Wel een afspringplaats voor paragliders, maar die zie je op donderdagochtend om half tien niet. Niet eind augustus.
Als je de Gaisberg aankan, kom je de Ventoux ook wel op. De Gaisberg is denk ik een stuk rustiger, maar geeft minder prestige, want niemand kent hem natuurlijk.
