Hiking in the Kaiser Mountains
Hiking in the Kaiser mountains
Anyone who wants to experience the region from its most beautiful side in spring and summer needs to get out into nature. There are a lot of ways to get there: around 1000 kilometres of well-signposted hiking paths await hikers and passionate mountaineers. From relaxed family routes to breath-taking peaks and climbs in the famous Kaiser Mountains: there is something for everyone. You can then recharge your batteries at one of the huts, with Tyrolean delicacies and organic products from the region.
The wild one stays untamed
The Kaiser Mountains have been a nature reserve for over 50 years. Despite the area's popularity the fauna and flora remain primal and diverse. The famous nature reserve is a true wonderland for hikers: bizarre, bright limestone, 1,000 meter high cliffs and jagged pinnacles above picturesque mountain meadows give the "Wilder Kaiser" its legends. In 1963, on the initiative of the Kufstein section of the Alpine Club, the entire "Wilder Kaiser" area was made into a nature reserve. The Kaiser Mountains are a popular playground for climbers and enthusiastic hikers – this is where Alpinists mastered grade VII. for the first time ever.
Hiking trails of all difficulty levels weave a network of experiences over the mountain valleys and peaks. Hikers can regain their strength with organic products and local delicacies in the countless huts and mountain guesthouses. One of the most popular areas remains the long isolated romantic Kaisertal, even now that it is connected to the road network. Anyone who wants to reach it has to walk up 282 steps. A small price to pay to enjoy untouched, protected nature.
