Located at the foot of the Zahmen and Wilder Kaiser mountains, nestled in lush green alpine meadows, lies a very special holiday region in Tyrol, Austria. The Kaiserwinkl is the perfect place for a family holiday or an active getaway with your friends. In this Collection, we present a selection of six colourful Tours. You can expect challenging hikes such as the route up the Heuberg and to the Hochalm, covering 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) and 860 metres (2,820 ft). However, there’s also leisurely and fun walks such as the Four Elements Trail.

The magnificent alpine panorama and a view of Lake Walchsee accompany you on most of the Tours. The Smuggler's Trail through the Klobenstein Gorge is spectacular too. You discover the secret routes of smugglers who once transported cigarettes, rum and coffee between Bavaria and Tyrol. The Taubensee Rundweg circular hike in Kössen municipality is also idyllic. Here, you can visit Taubensee Lake and a lovely hut. The region offers gushing waterfalls and a relaxed hike to the Kohlalm alpine pasture, too.

There’s a lot to discover and see in our region – the Kaiserwinkl is a great destination for your next family holiday or spontaneous short trip. With over 200 kilometres (124 mi) of hiking trails, you’ll find everything here – from buggy-friendly family walks to challenging summit Tours and guided hikes with certified mountain guides.

Plan your holiday however you like – the Kaiserwinkel’s beautiful landscapes will definitely inspire you!

    On this hike you walk on the old smuggler path, which runs on the route of the former Samerweg between Bavaria and Tyrol. The path has been around since the early Bronze Age 1,800 BC. At that time it was used to transport copper and salt, and in the Middle Ages it was used to transport wine and salt. After the Second World War, cigarettes, coffee, rum and even wheels of cheese were smuggled through the smugglers' route.

    Pure idyll, that's what awaits you on the Taubenseerundweg. You start at the information office in Kössen and first walk to the Hohe Brücke. From here a footpath leads through a beautifully shady forest until you later reach the Rinderbrachalm and the Frankenalm - both are managed and invite you to stop for a break. It continues over the Dichtleralm and a piece of forest, past the Sauermöseralm to the Sonnwendköpfl.
