With every step, you enjoy a breathtaking mountain panorama over crystal-clear glacial lakes. In the evening, the sunsets, casting its famous alpenglow across the mountains. You can stay and marvel at the scenery, as you’re staying on the mountain tonight. A hut Tour in the Kitzbühel Alps in Austria is the perfect adventure to unwind and decelerate from your daily routine. What can be better than a wonderful hike concluded with an overnight stay in a rustic mountain hut?

With this Collection, we take you into the mountain world of the Kitzbühel Alps on three different two-day Tours. All routes have something in common: you take the cable car up the mountain and can explore the beautiful alpine landscape with all the time in the world. At the end of the first day, a mountain hut awaits you at the Alpenrosenhütte, the Kobingerhütte, or the Brechhornhaus, each with delicious, regional food, a fantastic view, and cosy beds.

On the second day, you take a small detour to the nearby mountain. If you are an early bird, get up early to watch the sunrise over the Kitzbüheler Horn at the Kreuzjöchlsee. Afterward, you return to the valley with the cable car. The short distances and relaxed nature of these hikes make them perfect for beginners, a family outing, or an easy hike.

The tranquil village of Westendorf in Tyrol is an ideal base camp for the unique hut hikes as the alpenrosen-gondola runs from the village. You can reach Westendorf by train or bus, making it easy to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy a hiking vacation in the mountains.
