Nature reserve Kaiserbachtal
The Kaiserbachtal Valley is situated in the Wilder Kaiser Nature Reserve and extends from Kirchdorf’s hamlet of Griesenau to Stripsenjoch. The pristine valley is flanked by the rugged Wilder Kaiser in the east and by Feldberg and Zahmer Kaiser in the north. The 10,200-hectare nature reserve is home to a fauna and flora that is unique in the Northeastern Limestone Alps. Kaiserbachtal is starting point for countless peak hikes and challenging rock-climbing tours in the Kaiser Massif. Two great hikes include the ridge hike from Stripsenjoch via Feldberg for its spectacular views; and the easy hike along Kaiserbach River is easy for its scenic beauty. Predigtstuhl (Preacher’s Pulpit), Fleischbank (Meat Bank) and Totenkirchl (Church of the Dead) are names well known in the mountaineering and climbing community and stand as reminder of the dangers associated with climbing. The memorial chapel in Kaiserbachtal was built in 1984 to honor those mountaineers who died in the Kaiser Massif. A 5-kilometer long toll road leads from Griesenau to the foot of the spectacular Wilder Kaiser Mountains at 1024 meters above sea level. The road is open in the summer from approx. middle of March to the end of October, allowing non-hikers to enjoy this magnificent mountain scenery.
