On the trail of nature

Out and about in the nature reserve with experts!

This year locals and visitors will enjoy a unique offer in the Kaiser Mountains nature reserve: from May to September guided walks will be offered in the nature reserve on a variety of nature themes. And all of it free of charge! Look forward to our hikes with various experts from the Natopia association, the hunting community, the University of Innsbruck and the Austrian Federal Forestry Office. They will take you on a journey that lets you look more closely at the nature reserve. Regardless of your age, the programme will be adjusted to suit the group. This means that families or specialist groups are also welcome. You will research and observe, your senses will be sharpened, answers will be found to questions, you will marvel and discover, and there's also plenty of hiking fun. Enjoy the beauty of nature from a different perspective. You'll be surprised!

The hikes

The meeting point for these free walks is always the bottom station of the Kaiserlift in Kufstein. After taking the Kaiserlift up we will focus on our special theme. The hike will take around three hours. Details about the offers can be found at the TVB info office or in the folder.

Please note that registration is required up to two days before the hike, either at the TVB info office or via +43 5372 62207 or info@kufstein.com
