Tour information

The tour starts from the parking area of Gasthof Wegscheid in the Kurzer Grund valley in Kelchsau valley.
From there a well-built mountain path leads for approx. 1 hour through the wood. After getting to the forest line we can either follow the forest road or take the mountain path which might be shorter but also steeper than the road. No matter what – the last couple of hundred metres will lead us anyway along the forest road almost flat into the valley towards our destination. Past Kuhwildalm and quickly over the river and finally we have reached sunny terrace of the mountain refuge which is run by the alpine club.
At Neue Bamberger Hütte we get treated to fantastic food and can take a break from everyday life in the quiet of the Kitzbühel Alps. All those who strive for higher heights will find numerous tours to the surrounding peaks. Highliy recommended – an overnight stay at Neue Bamberger Hütte.
To return back to the valley we take the same way.
