Tour information

This hike starts at the Harschbichl top terminal. The gravel road first descends a short
distance and then switchbacks through steep meadows before turning into a narrow
trail. At its narrowest point the Ludwig-Scheiber-Steig trail is secured with a steel
cable. Take time to enjoy the superb views of the Kaiser mountain range! After crossing
through a spectacular rock gate, the trail follows an asphalt road for a few meters
before continuing through alpine pastures and past a chapel to the peak of Kitzbüheler
Horn. From the top the trail heads down along a narrow ridge toward “Hoferschneid”.
The views of the surrounding mountains are magnificent but the trail is steep and it is
important to watch your steps. At Hoferschneid pick up the “Jägersteig” trail back to the
Harschbichl top terminal. You can either walk down or take the cable car back to the valley.
TIP! Don’t miss out on the beautiful Alpine Flower Garden between Gipfelhaus
and Alpenhaus.
