Koasa Trail Stage 2

The footpath on the Kaiserbach will take you to the inner valley. Surrounded by the impressive peaks of the Wilder Kaiser, the Kaiserbachtal valley and its meadows is situated at the foot of the steep cliff walls. The path will take you past the Bergtotenkapelle chapel – the brass plaques of the chapel contain the names of all those who have died on the Wilder Kasier. The wall follows an incline up to the Stripsenjochhaus (approx. 2 h). With a bit of luck, you might even catch a glimpse of the chamois on the cliff walls. Once at the top, you may be able to enjoy a snack with views of the majestic Kaisergipfel peak! The Tavonarokreuz cross above the Stripsenjochhaus presents the perfect photo opportunity. Depending on your fitness level and mountain experience, there is also the chance to extend the tour via the Stripsenkopf (approx. 45 mins longer and a mountain trail with a black classification) or continue on towards the Feldberg. Once at the Stripsenkopf, a pavilion with breath-taking all-round views awaits instead of a summit cross. Along the mountain ridge from the Feldberg (1813 m), you can enjoy views of the peaks on the north side of the Wilder Kaiser and the surrounding mountain and meadow landscape. The summits have names such as Totenkirchl (church of the dead), Predigtstuhl (preacher’s chair) and Fleischbank (meat bench), evoking thoughts of evil and stimulating the imagination of hikers. Rare plants and various animal species make their home in the Kaiserbachtal nature protection area. And this treasure is being protected through the sustainable management of the habitat both in terms of agriculture and tourism. The descent runs past the Ranggenalm. Once there, dairyman Michael serves tasty treats and drinks (approx. 4 h 30 mins) to guests if he is not preoccupied with his mountain work, looking after his animals or making his Alpine cheese! The walk follows an incline down to the Fischbachalm and runs along the Kaiserbach footpath back to the hamlet of Griesenau – the end of the second stage.
