The second stage of the imperial crown is characterized by a long descent, which offers you the most beautiful views of the Hohe Tauern and Kitzbühel Alps. At the end of this day you will reach the turquoise shining Hintersteiner lake.No sooner have you left the Grutten hut than you are already on the Wilden-Kaiser-Steig, which will take you to an enchanting kar landscape with gnarled pine trees. The Kaisergipfel Treffauer and Tuxeck tower above you.After a short time you will reach the uncultivated Kaiser-Hochalm. Just a few steps further you can reward yourself on the cozy Steiner Hochalm to the Harfenklang with a fresh buttermilk.Over a mountain trail now begins the steady descent to the crystal-clear and in every conceivable blue and turquoise tones shining Hintersteiner lake. As you walk along its wooded shore, several places await you to dream and linger. At the end of the west bank, you leave the lake and make your way north.Pension Maier provides you with food and drink and can be your destination of the day. If you go a few hundred meters, there is another accommodation at the Pension Hagenhof.
