Escape the city and head to the mountains. In Kufsteinerland, the spectacular Kaiser Mountains and two nature reserves, Zahmer and Wilder Kaiser are ready to welcome you. Wonderful hiking trails and challenging climbs will take you through dense forests of mountain pines to luscious alpine pastures, and up rugged peaks. As you hike, you can enjoy unforgettable views of the surrounding mountains, the wide Inn Valley and the idyllic Kaisertal, voted the most beautiful place in Austria in 2016.

In this Collection, we show you three two-day routes that are perfect for a weekend city detox in Kufsteinerland. Equipped with sure-footedness and sturdy shoes, you are ready to take on the Kaiser Mountains, hike the Zahmer Kaiser high trail, and conquer the Wilder Kaiser route. You will stay overnight in comfortable huts surrounded by incredible mountain scenery.

You can look forward to unspoiled nature, peace and quiet, a dip in a crystal-clear lake, and rustic huts serving regional delicacies along each of the routes in this Collection.

You can comfortably travel to the start of the hikes with public transport. Within one hour from Munich, for example, you reach Kufstein where there are connections to buses or trains that take you to the starting points of the tours. You can find train connections at bayern-fahrplan.de/de/auskunft. You can check the regional bus connections at vvt.at. Kufstein is also home to the Kaiserlift, which takes you from the city directly into the breathtaking nature of the mountains.

The Koasa March which takes place around Kufstein and the Kaiser Mountains is also not to be missed. This unique event brings together like-minded mountain athletes to discover the region on three trail runs and four hiking routes. For more information, visit: koasamarsch.at.
