The hike starts at the Fischbachalm parking lot in Kaiserbachtal. Follow the trail to Vordere Ranggenalm. If dairyman Michael is around and has time, you should stop by the hut and sample his tasty homemade cheese. The trail affords magnificent views of the Wilder Kaiser’s mighty, jagged peaks including Lärchegg, Mitterkaiser, Predigtstuhl, Fleischbank and Totenkirchl, names that are well-known in the climbing and mountaineering community.
From Vordere Ranggenalm the trail climbs gently to Hintere Ranggenalm, which sits amid a glorious alpine landscape. Due to extensive cultivation practices the soil is rather poor here, and plants and animals had to adapt to the surroundings. From Hintere Ranggenalm follow a narrow trail down to Griesner Alm. Continue along Kaiserbach river back to Fischbachalm.
