Impressions from the KAT Walk

What do KAT walkers, locals from the Kitzbühel Alps and bloggers say about the long-distance hiking trail?

Off we go to discover new things. Not just the landscape, but also the people here. Perhaps even yourself a bit. As: "The trail leads you right to the people.." 106 kilometres long and 6350 metres of altitude gain with new views and insights all the time ...

Personal highlights

KAT Walkers report their personal summit experiences

Mountains, sun, nature, peace and quiet - it's quite simply superb! Having a drink by an Alpine lake, being at the summit cross on the Kitzbüheler Horn, views for the soul to feast on ...

Quiet and isolated. Magnificent mountain panoramas. Superbly signposted and wonderfully maintained hiking trails!

Having a lunch break on Alpine stage 3 amid a sea of roses on an Alpine pasture on the Hinterkarscharte - with great views on either side. And visiting Sepp Kahn on day 2 - it was exciting to see how he still makes cheese and butter there today in the original way. It's fantastic that he gave us a glimpse of his everyday life!

I got to the top of the Kitzbüheler Horn in the rain and a storm after a three-hour ascent. At the Gipfelhaus inn I got the chance to warm up and dry out by the fireplace ... and suddenly it was dry outside, and I was able to take the wonderful path back down to the valley in the sunshine. It was a week full of hiking, eating and sleeping!
