Lodron Mountain

The most beautiful summit cross in the region

Lodron with its gentle summit at 1,925 metres is among the most impressive hiking destinations in Windautal Valley. It can be reached from Windautal in Westendorf, as well as from Kelchsau in Hopfgarten. A short stop is required at Lärchenbergalm, where Alpine writer and dialect poet Sepp Kahn spends his summers. With some luck you’ll meet him there and can philosophise a little together.

Lodron is also part of the long-distance hiking trail of the Kitzbühel Alps, the KAT-Walk.
