Tour information

The leisurely hike starts in the center of Kirchdorf. First, walk between the municipal office and the church in the direction of Weng/Erpfendorf. Turn into Leerbergstraße and after about 400 meters follow the hiking trail to Gasteig. Along the Leerberg, the trail leads steadily up and down in the forest until you reach the hamlet of Unteranger. Here you branch off to the reservoir. Through the forest, the hiking trail leads up to the oldest reservoir in Tyrol. The 10 meter high dam wall was built in 1901/1902. Via a small hamlet you reach a pasture area with alpine pasture character. After a short forest section, you are directly opposite the imposing Wilder Kaiser. Cross-country the hiking trail goes up and joins the forest road shortly before the alpine hut. After a few minutes you already have the idyllic Bacheralm in view. The dairy woman at Bacheralm is a certified herbalist and offers hikers homemade juices and herbal infusions as refreshment. In a few minutes you reach the Metzgeralm. Here it is worth taking a detour to the summit cross. Along the forest road you hike down in the direction of Gasteig/Kramerhof. Pass the valley station of the winter toboggan run and walk to the main road. Walk a short distance along the road in the direction of Kirchdorf until you reach Café Erika. Here you march cross-country next to the house to the two picturesquely situated mountain farms "Vorder and Hinter Schwaiglern". Via an ancient path, which used to be used to visit the church on Sundays and holidays, you come to the newly restored farm "Point". Follow the road until you reach the hiking trail that leads through the forest back to the starting point.
