Reißkofel (2,371 m) is a mountain of the Gailtal Alps in Carinthia, Austria. It is the highest mountain of the Gailtals outside of the Lienz Dolomites, and is a very dominant peak, having a prominence of some 1,390 m, as it is situated amongst much lower peaks. It lies between the Drava valley in the north, near the town of Greifenburg, and the Gail valley to the south, both of which it dominates, towering over the valleys some 1,700m below it. The mountain is the culminating point of a long ridge, and is steep and rocky on both its northern and southern faces. It was first climbed in 1848 by Johann Festin von Wald.
There's a demanding alpine trail (T5) leading to the summit. Reißkofel is one of the 57 peaks along the multi-day Julius Kugy Alpine Trail.
The nearest mountain hut is E.T.-Compton-Hütte located 1 438m/4 716ft NE of the summit.
