In this Collection, we have selected seven different day tours for you to fully enjoy the best the region has to offer. Let yourself be enchanted by the breathtaking panoramic views from the Pendling, Hinteren Sonnwendjoch or Gamskogel summits. Experience an adventurous and wet hike through the Glemmbachklamm. Take the Kaiser lift into the heart of the Kaiser Mountains. And, enjoy the rustic alpine huts, each unique, in the picturesque mountain landscape.

Are you an early bird? Then get started with the ascents during the cool morning hours and treat yourself to a generous breakfast at one of the huts on the mountain. Are you more of a coffee and cake type? No problem – most walks have a coffee break on the itinerary. You can simply enjoy the unique scenery and soak up the relaxed mountain atmosphere. If you would like to extend your hiking experience, you can also spend the night in many of the mountain huts which you visit on your walks. If you plan to spend several days in the region, Kufstein serves as an ideal base camp and is a starting point for many of the hikes.

Feel the cool air on your cheeks from the peaks and make the most of the long summer days to explore the beautiful Austrian mountains. In Kufsteinerland, you will become a summit enthusiast!
