The Hohe Salve is often considered to afford the most beautiful view in the whole of Tyrol, no mean feat in this mountainous region. The Hohe Salve belongs to the spectacular Kitzbühel Alps in western Austria. Lying between the Karwendel, Wilder Kaiser and Hohe Tauern mountain ranges, you will be amazed by the panorama from the summit.

In this Collection, we’ve selected six hiking routes for you on the Hohe Salve and the surrounding mountains. On each of the hikes, you can enjoy wonderful panoramas, gentle mountain slopes, traditional inns, and vast alpine meadows. Leisure hikers can take the gondola high into the mountains whilst hardy mountaineers can take on the long summit routes.

Following forest paths and mountain trails through the wild landscape, you will find tranquil nature in abundance here as you explore mountain lakes and the only ice cave in Tyrol.

The Hohe Salve is located between the towns of Kufstein, Worgl, and Kitzbühel. Just hop on a train, choose your favourite route, and set off to the mountains this summer.

    The Torhelm is the third highest mountain in the Kitzbühel Alps and offers a wonderful panoramic view of the Hohe Tauern. The ascent to the summit is quite challenging, but takes place on well-developed and marked mountain trails. The moderately difficult tour leads through the secluded Langer Grund valley and is perfect for ambitious hikers. The only managed alpine hut is at the starting point of the hike, so you should definitely pack enough water and food.
