Tour information

This hike starts at the hamlet Hinterkaiser in St. Johann in Tirol. Follow the signs to “Einsiedelei” (Hermitage) along the meadows at the foot of the Niederkaiser Ridge and through a forest to the Einsiedelei Chapel. The trail continues across a clearing and then climbs to Gmail Chapel from where it winds its way steeply towards Niederkaiserkamm. Once you have reached the ridge, the trail climbs and falls for a while, offering great views of the Kitzbüheler Horn and St. Johann. Tip: Take a break at „Ursulablick“ - you enjoy marvelous views! At Gscheuerkopf (1279m) the trail has a short climbing section, which is secured with steel cables. Then continue to the Kaiser Niederalm and Granderalm. At Granderalm there is an iron ladder (prerequisites: sure footedness and a good head for heights) down to Schleier waterfall – another highlight along your walk.
From there, Trail No. 818 takes you past the waterfall down to the valley. Then follow the trails of „Moor & more“, and return via Rummlerhof back to your starting point.
