Hiking & climbing
What it even be a Tyrolean holiday if you didn't go up into the mountains? Whether you want a leisurely walk or are determined to conquer the summits, in the magnificent mountain world just outside the Stanglwirt's front door you'll find countless opportunities for hikes and alpine tours all year round. The region's well-signposted and perfectly maintained network of footpaths offers a huge variety of beautiful destinations. Whether you're looking for gentle walks, genuine alpine tours or adventurous walks for children with lots of places to play along the way – for example on the Moor & More circular walk – we can guarantee to put you on the right track!
Free of charge, but never for nothing
Take advantage of our free programme of walks, which changes every week, and explore the wonderful scenery around the Wilder Kaiser on a guided walk. And every Wednesday in summer, there's another highlight for mountain-lovers: our Stanglwirt landlady Magdalena Hauser herself takes any guests who are interested up to the hotel's own Stangl Alm alpine pasture. If you want to get up high without too much effort, then with the help of the excellent network of Kitzbühel cable cars, you can be at your own summit meeting in just a few minutes. For a new culinary outlook, don't forget the many mountain huts and farms in the region too.
Conquer the Wilder Kaiser
The jagged peaks and steep cliff faces of the Wilder Kaiser have held a fascinating appeal for mountaineers since the earliest days of alpine climbing in the early 1920s.
Hans Dülfer, Hermann Buhl, Adolf Göttner, Reinhard Karl, Helmut None, Stefan Glowacz, the Huber brothers and many other sporting and climbing legends have all helped to keep alive the mystique of the Wilder Kaiser. Consequently, the "Emperor's Mountain" today is very highly rated on the climbing scene.
