Long runner Hiking

The Kitzbüheler Alpen satsify with a network of trails covering 2,500 kilometres as well as with new offers.

Some long, some short, some with culinary motivation, some involving sports:

Hiking in the Kitzbüheler Alpen is a long runner. Because the four holiday regions of Brixental, St. Johann in Tirol, Hohe Salve and PillerseeTal offer a hiking region in a class of its own between gentle grassy mountains and the Wilder Kaiser massif. The trail network covers around 2,500 km of signposted trails. Here variety is trumps: The range of options spans from easy options in the valley to hikes with cable car assistance all the way to tours up solitary peaks and the popular long-distance hiking trails.

Not always is the way the reward. In the Kitzbüheler Alpen, there are always plenty of interesting things to learn while on the way. This is ensured not least by the themed hiking trails, which provide as much excitement and variety for adults as they do for children. On the Four Seasons hiking trail, visitors can learn, for example, how many litres of milk a cow yields a day. Or experience the numerous stations of the Alpinolino themed trail under the motto of “playing, exploring and discovering”.

That when hiking you can literally strike new paths, is something the Kitzbüheler Alpen have impressively proven not least with the KAT Walk. On six stages, 106 km long and 6,350 m difference in altitude, the Kitzbüheler Alpen Trail was a success from the word go: Its secret: Under the motto of “feasting instead of snoring” it combines long-distance hiking with creature comforts and enjoyment. Among the latter number inns with double rooms, shower and culinary surprises. New for this year is that the KAT Walk is compact: Spread over five days, it offers 76 km of hiking and several options for taking shortcuts with the cable car.

New long-distance hiking trails can also be explored in PillerseeTal and the region of St. Johann in Tirol. Between Waidring and Wildseeloder, the WAIWI shows the entire diversity of the region over three stages through PillerseeTal: The trail leads across the local mountain past the natural gem of Lake Pillersee up to the big St James’s summit cross on the summit of Buchensteinwand which you can walk into, and on to the idyllically located Wildseeloder lake. Koasa Trail is the name of the five stages of the likewise newly designed trail, which leads to the most scenic natural settings of the region around St. Johann in Tirol. It, too, provides luggage forwarding and accommodation in select lodgings without mattress dorms.

Because hiking in the fresh mountain air is known to whet the appetite, numerous landlords stand ready to cater to your snack-break. Be it Kaiserschmarrn, Tyrolean Gröstl or cheese spaetzle – no hiker will have to continue hungry on their way. Most dishes are based on regional and local produce. As part of a culinary hike, you can explore the establishments of the KochArt initiative, which has maintained a culinary philosophy with grounding and sustainability since 2008 and now numbers 23 member establishments. Wonderful hiking and excellent dining – that’s something you can combine in Brixental from 1 to 10 October. Austria’s Four-Toque-Chef Simon Taxacher presents a gourmet festival during this period in his home of Kirchberg and Aschau, named “Simon Taxacher Kulinartika”.

Those who aim for even loftier heights when hiking will also find climbing crags and rocks as well as high alpine tours in the Kitzbüheler Alpen. The Wilder Kaiser with its impressive rock faces such as the Fleischbank or Totenkirchl is known as an eldorado for climbers. Novice climbers can learn everything about the proper technique on the via ferrata and on easy rock climbing routes during a climbing trial lesson on the Stripsenjoch, taught by certified mountain guides.
