Eight beautiful hikes in the Kufsteinerland region of Austria
Alpine meadows, pine forests, beautiful views, high cliffs and cozy and authentic mountain hut backdropped by hills – hiking in the Kufsteinerland region of Austria is truly amazing.
Located just across the German border, this beautiful region is known for its Kaiser Mountains, with the Ellmauer Tor its highest point. However, the Kaisertal Valley – a natural line between the Zahmer Kaiser and the Wilder Kaiser– is not the only popular hiking area in Kufsteinerland. The hiking possibilities are also almost unlimited in the Thiersee Valley, where you find the Pendling, the region’s local mountain, that is recognizable from far away. Right on the border with Bavaria, you can also discover the hiking areas of Spitzstein and Kranzhorn.
