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 long-distance hiking trail over hill and dale fills up your fresh air tanks and clears your head. In a nutshell: The best of the Tyrol on 3 appealing variants!

The KAT Walk is marked in both variants as a red - and thus moderately difficult - mountain hiking trail with the KAT Walk logo throughout. Every experienced hiker who is used to terrain with many obstacles can conquer it. There are no climbing passages. There is only a short rope-secured passage at the Kitzbüheler Horn on the stage from Kitzbühel to St. Johann. Minimum mountain equipment, appropriate physical condition and surefootedness are necessary.
