Between the Inn Valley and the Kitzbühel Alps, a compact mountain massif of selected beauty rises dramatically and picturesquely at the same time: the Wilder Kaiser. While the steep limestone peaks are primarily the destination of experienced mountaineers, the Wilder Kaiser also offers the perfect backdrop for scenic hut tours. The most famous hut tour is the Kaiserkrone, which takes you around the Wilder Kaiser in five days. If you have less time, you can also get to know the wonderful nature of the Kaiser Mountains on a long weekend on the three-day hut hike.

In contrast to the technically challenging summit tours, the Kaiserkrone is well suited for occasional mountain hikers — but good stamina and sure-footedness are still a necessity. If you bring them with you, you will enjoy a top-class mountain hiking experience on the Kaiserkrone. As the Kaiser Mountains are a nature reserve and no cable car leads up into the mountains, you can look forward to untouched alpine nature — the view of the rugged peaks of the Wilder Kaiser accompanies you every step of the way. Thanks to other huts along the way, various descent routes and bus connections in Gasteig and at Hintersteiner See, you can adapt the Kaiserkrone to your personal needs.

Alternatively, you can simply take a direct look at our three-day hut hike. On the first and second day of the regular route of the Kaiserkrone, it follows you through magnificent mountain landscapes and, above all, to the crystal-clear Hintersteiner See. From there you hike the third stage above the lake along and through the Rehbachklamm gorge down to Scheffau. You can find the full track to this tour here: komoot.de/tour/575291872

Our tip: From 25th June to 2nd July the Wilder Kaiser is the mountain sports week! The program includes a spectacular via ferrata ascent, a mountain bike tour with a combined mountain run, of course an eventful mountain tour, a day on the climbing rock and a sparkling canyoning trip. You can put together all the program items individually and thus experience your very own personal mountain sports week. You can get the three-day package from as little as 99 euros — plus your accommodation costs. You can find all the information here: wilderkaiser.info/bergsportwoche.
