Variations of the long-distance hiking trail

Where are the most stunning hikes in the Kitzbüheler Alpen?

Welcome to the KAT Walk - the Kitzbüheler Alpen Trail. The 106 km or 76 km cross-country walkway allows you to stock up on fresh air and clear your mind. Quite amp; simply: it shows you the sunny side of Tirol in two delightful variations!

In both variations the KAT Walk is marked red – as a mountain hiking trail with average difficulty - with the KAT Walk logo visible throughout. Any experienced hiker used to varied terrain can complete it. There are no climbing sections. There is just one short section where you need to hold a rope on the Kitzbüheler Horn - on the stage from Kitzbühel to St. Johann. Basic mountain equipment, an appropriate physical shape and sure-footedness are required.
