    1. WILDER KAISER

      The hiking trail meanders calmly from Scheffau to the Kaiser-Hochalm at 1,400 meters. If you want to shorten the tour a little, you can skip the detour that leads from the round tour to the Hochalm and instead enjoy the ten-kilometer tour.In both cases, Scheffau is the starting point and destination of this hike through the beautiful mountains of the Wilder Kaiser. The first section of the route leads calmly through the green landscape of the Kaiser Mountains. You pass the Jägerwirt and the great stretch of the Wegscheid Niederalm. Then the path becomes steeper and it goes up to the Kaiser-Hochalm. Alternatively, you can skip the ascent at this point and follow the path at the Vorderschiessling Alm straight ahead.Shortly after the Alm you will reach the Sailabodenkreuz, from which you have a great view. Now it goes steadily downhill until you stand in the middle of the Rehbachklamm and continue your way back to Scheffau in the natural landscape.If you don't have your accommodation in Scheffau, then you can easily reach the place with the KaiserJet from nearby places.

      On this panorama trail, you can experience everything that defines the mountain world of the Wilder Kaiser in one day: wide views, unique mountain landscapes and enjoyment. A little over 20 kilometers are waiting for you on this panorama path, but the hike runs on mostly easy-to-walk paths and moderately difficult sections.The starting point of this wonderful day hike on the Wilder Kaiser is the Astberg lift station, which you can reach via the entrance in Going. So you start your tour right in the middle of the beautiful mountains at almost 1,300 meters.The path leads you first towards the Schwaigerkogel and then to the Auer-Hochalm, from where you can take a look at the Wilder Kaiser. The first impressive stop on your way is the Jochstubensee after almost twelve kilometers. The next four kilometers you hike across green alpine meadows a little down to Filzalmsee at 1,300 meters, which rewards you with an atmospheric mountain panorama.The last section of the tour then takes you to Hochsöll, your destination. From there, the Hochsöll cable car goes down into the valley to Söll and from there you can simply take the Kaiserjet back to Going.

      The Hintersteiner See is located in the middle of the Wilder Kaiser nature reserve. It is the cleanest natural swimming lake in Tyrol and lies at an altitude of 883 meters. A real jewel in the midst of an impressive mountain landscape that you can easily reach on foot with this hike.It starts on the edge of Söll, at the level of the Franzlhof. Immediately after a few meters you will come across the idyllic moor lake and then climb up towards Hinterstein. Behind you there is always a great panorama that lets you see all the way to Söll.Shortly before you reach the Hintersteiner See, you can not only take a break at the organic farm Pension Maier, but also enjoy the breathtaking view of your destination. After another 600 meters you will finally meet the green-blue water of the natural lake.On the lake itself there are not only several places to stop for a break, but also a lido. With a jump into the cold water you complete your hike and then you can take the hiking bus Hintersteiner See to Scheffau and change there to the KaiserJet to Söll. So you can get back to your starting point quickly.

    1. PillerseeTal - Kitzbüheler Alpen

      An extraordinary mountain experience awaits you around the panoramic Seehorn. With the glittering Pillersee at your feet, you climb the 2,155 meters and thus complete a considerable part of the well-known Nuaracher Höhenweg. Surefootedness is an absolute must on this partly secured hiking trail!The tour starts in the heart of Ortisei. You can find the perfect connection to get to your starting point here: kitzbueheler-alpen.com/de/pital/mobil.html. Then you turn your back on civilization directly.First you climb steadily uphill through a magical pine forest to the so-called Bräuplatte. From here you can already see the summit cross. The path now requires a little more concentration: You hike a bit through rocky mountain pine slopes. Past a helicopter landing pad and over a hollow you will soon be standing at the homecoming cross that adorns the summit of the Ulrichshorn.It's really nice up here - surrounded by rocky companions and the valley at your busy feet. But you want more. You climb a few meters back downhill, then you follow the partly rope-secured path over rock passages and a ridge to the Seehorn. Here you can enjoy the view. You go back the same way that brought you up.

    1. PillerseeTal - Kitzbüheler Alpen

      A unique mountain world, lively water and a rustic refreshment stop await you on your round to the Schießlingalm. A wonderful tour at the foot of the mighty Leoganger Steinberge, which not only pleases "grown" hikers due to its abundance of water.It starts right in the center of St. Ulrich am Pillersee, which you can reach on foot or by bus, depending on which accommodation you stayed in. You can find more detailed information about mobility on site here: kitzbueheler-alpen.com/de/pital/mobil.html.The path first leads you past the local Kneipp facility, then always along the Lasbach stream to the Weißleiten district. Idyllic paths lead you uphill for a while. Then you are already standing in front of the Schießlingalm at 1,217 meters.The Alm tempts you to take a break with a view of the rocky mountains that surround you here. The finest Tyrolean home-style cooking is served. And if you are properly strengthened, you can make your way back. A little dangling lets you take the Schießlingkreuz with you before you walk back to the starting point over the Grieseltal with its dreamy stream accesses.

      For us, a delicious lunch break is just as much a part of hiking happiness as the sweaty ascent and the heart-warming view. This tour therefore takes you up to a wonderful inn. It gets sweaty on the eight and a half kilometers, you enjoy the views enough. And if that is not enough happiness, a delicacy from the inn kitchen awaits you on top.From the Aschau village center, you first walk past the campsite and lift station towards the forest. The path leads over stick, stone and stream under the trees to the Wiesberghof, then alternating with a road up to the Lantsch houses. A dirt road guarantees you the best views, while you first walk over it and then again on a small road to the Gasthof Talblick.Have a seat and enjoy the view - it's hard to beat on the inn's sun terrace. Enjoy the regional delicacies and let the sun shine on your face before you walk downhill on the way back and, for the most part, down the Koglstrasse again.

      If this tour piques your interest, we'll assume that you are one of the more ambitious hikers in the world. Then you don't mind if you conquer not just one, but three peaks in the course of these almost 14 kilometers and 800 meters of altitude: the Wimbachkopf, the Marchkopf and the Gedrechter are on the program. So it's best not to lose any time.It starts at the parking lot at the reservoir. At the fork in the road, keep right and follow the gravel path to the Mizunalm. Your first highlight and possible resting point is not far from here: The Kristallhütte welcomes you shortly after the mountain station of a chairlift. You have already covered the first three kilometers of your tour, and you should also strengthen yourself for the upcoming climb. So why not stop by for a moment?From the hut you follow a ridge to the Kaltenbacher Wetterkreuz. A short (but crisp) ascent later you reach the first summit of the tour: the Wimbachkopf. There follows a short descent to the managed Wedelhütte, then the next giant named Marchkopf laughs at you. From here you follow the same path back a short distance until the route leads you from the Wedelhütte through the Grubach to the final Gedrecht summit. Have you entered yourself everywhere in the summit book? Then you can now descend in peace to the Kaltenbacher ski hut and your starting point.

    1. Erste Ferienregion im Zillertal

      The Kleine Gilfert is not that small at 2,388 meters, but due to the easily accessible paths leading there, it is easy to climb even for inexperienced hikers. You should only bring the appropriate level of fitness: After all, there are 15 kilometers and 900 meters in altitude ahead of you today.The tour starts right in Hochfügen. A gravel path leads you past the Pfundsalm Niederleger up to the Pfundsalm Hochleger. The forest path soon turns into a wonderfully green and extremely idyllic alpine area. So it meanders slowly but surely up to the summit.What awaits you there deserves its own brief explanation: At the top of the Kleiner Gilfert there is a symbol of peace that presents and unites nine different religions. The “phoenix from the ashes”, enthroned in the middle, symbolizes rebirth. In addition, a philosophical saying by Meister Eckhart is given up here for the best - not just in one, but in ten different languages and their respective scripts. So there is a lot to discover! Take your time. The way back leads back to Hochfügen via the same route.Tip for the tour: There are no places to stop for a break on the way. Sufficient provisions and drinks are therefore an absolute must. You can fill your stomach up at the end of the tour, when you have safely arrived in Hochfügen.

      The Gilfert is a 2,506 meter high pre-summit of the Tux Alps, which promises you wonderful views of the Inn Valley, the Karwendel Mountains and the entire Zillertal. On this demanding, 14.5-kilometer tour, you climb it and, in addition to enjoying the panorama, above all, wonderfully untouched nature.Let's go directly in Hochfügen. A gravel path leads you up to the Lamarkalm Mittelleger, then over a first steep section to a fork in the road. Here you have the opportunity to take a short detour to the Sonntagsköpfl. It's only a stone's throw to the grassy summit, but the view you enjoy there is definitely worth every meter.Back on the main route, you start the final spurt to the Gilfert summit. In doing so, you will cover another considerable amount of altitude. “It was worth the effort”, you will think to yourself at the latest when you stand at its proud summit cross and enjoy the unbelievable panorama. The way back is steep at first, then more leisurely, but always nice downhill over the Lamarkalm Hoch- and Niederleger back to Hochfügen.Tip: Except at your starting and ending point, there are no places to stop for a break on this tour. So pack yourself a snack and enough to drink. And back in Hochfügen, treat yourself to a delicacy in one of the local inns. You deserve it!

    1. Kitzbüheler Alpen

      The large Rettenstein is the most striking mountain in the Brixental. Its summit is made of rugged dolomite, which forms a great contrast to the green, lovely mountain meadows. The 2,366-meter-high mountain gets its name from the fact that its stone tip is bathed in an impressive red in the evening sunlight.The starting point of the almost 15-kilometer hike is at the Hintenbachalm. Right from the start you hike steadily uphill. Look forward to an extremely varied route across the beautiful nature of the Brixental. You hike up the first section along the Schöntalbach stream and enjoy the cool shade of the trees and the sound of the water.Then you leave the forest and continue walking across an open alpine pasture. You can already see your destination, the summit of the Rettenstein. The path continues between Hex and Spikesnägelkamm to the huts of the Schöntalscherm. From now on it gets steeper: In hairpin bends you wind your way up the mountain. Step by step you cover the last meters in altitude, just before the summit there is a small block climbing waiting for you. You will be rewarded with a fantastic view at the top - from the Hohe Tauern, to the Großglockner, the Großvenediger and to the Zillertal.If you have had enough of the panorama, you can hike back down the valley on the same path. Shortly before the end, you can stop at the Kasplatzl mountain restaurant and enjoy the homemade cheese.
