Zauberberg is the second album by Wolfgang Voigt's Gas project. It was released in December, 1997 on the Mille Plateaux label. The album is named in reference to the Thomas Mann novel The Magic Mountain (Der Zauberberg). It is the first Gas album to incorporate the forest imagery that would become a trademark of the project. Reviews generally cite Zauberberg as the darkest, most dissonant Gas release.
The CD and vinyl pressings feature notable differences. The songs are re-ordered for the CD format, with several presented as extended versions. For Zauberberg's inclusion in the Nah und Fern box set, track 6 of the CD was replaced with an extended version of the same piece. Gas' second box set, Box, features tracks 1, 3, 6 and 7 of the CD in extended format.
