Together we drive from St. Johann in Tirol to Griesner Alm in the pristine Kaiserbachtal, where we start our hike to Fritz-Pflaum-Hütte (1,866 m). The trail zizags up between two precipitous peaks - Mitterkaiser and Predigtstuhl - to „Großes Griesner Tor“ and on to the huge Griesnerkar Cirque with Fritz Pflaum-Hütte (not serviced - bring your own food and water), a gorgeous old stone hut amid the Kaiser’s countless towers, turret and spires. The views during this hike are absolutely breath taking! Don't forget drinks and snacks!
