The Kitzbühel Alps are a holiday world unto themselves: 2,500 kilometres of hiking trails criss-cross the countryside between the Wilder Kaiser in the north and the Hohe Tauern National Park in the south.
Daily guided tours open up the fascination of the mountains to active holidaymakers at no charge. 254 mountain huts and inns along the way double as "battery charging stations" serving up delicious alpine treats.
One of many popular destinations - with hikers and cyclists - is the Kitzbüheler Horn in Kitzbühel, regarded as the steepest biking mountain in Austria. From the summit the trail runs across beautiful alpine meadows and past the Bichlalm tavern all the way to Rosi’s Sonnbergstuben inn, where a taxi is waiting to take hikers back down into the valley again. For families, the Kitzbühel Alps offer everything "wanderful" - from barefoot hiking to climbing for children and geocaching. In 10 alpine adventure worlds and on 25 theme trails, children approach and familiarise themselves with adventure that is nature. Among the best hiking destinations is the Kaiserbachtal nature reserve, the Griesbach gorge, the Teufelsgasse (Devil's Alley) and the Moor & more-Adventure World for families by the Wilder Kaiser. For "endurance walkers", too, the Kitzbühel Alps become infinite enjoyment. With ten high-altitude hikes, multi-day hikes from hut to hut and long-distance hikes such as the Adlerweg trail and the Tiroler Jakobsweg, you'll get closer to the impressive alpine panoramas - and to heaven - step by step.
