This segment will take you to the small town of Kufstein located on the banks of the Inn River – a town which has been celebrated in song and is steeped in history and character. Walk through the lush and verdant beauty of a pasture paradise with cosy huts and mountain restaurants to take a rest (delicious “Kiachl” are served at Brentenjoch Hut every Saturday). With so many sights to see, you should not forget to keep an eye on the wayside – as nearly a thousand of different flowering plants grow in the Kaiser Mountains. A highlight of this segment is the “Wilder Kaiser” chair lift ride – a great chance to wind down and recharge your batteries after having had plenty of wonderful experiences at the heart of nature. The lift ride takes you down to Sparchen, a district of Kufstein.

Is it about the journey or the destination? You decide. There is nothing like a pristine mountain lake for relief from summer's heat. You might find it incomparably refreshing to cool off in lovely Hintersteinersee Lake at the end of your hiking day. With that in mind, and surrounded by the mesmerizing peaks of Kaiser Range, you will walk across mountain meadows, dwarf pine areas, beech and mixed woodlands as well as rock scrambles, passing Grutten Hut on your way to picture-postcard Hintersteinersee Lake. This is the cleanest and most beautiful mountain lake in the whole of Tirol. The pristine lake covers 56 hectares of spring-fed waters and measures 36 metres at its deepest point. Hintersteinersee Lake is private property; swimming is allowed at its north-western beach. Before taking a plunge, why not dip your finger in holy water? The Baroque ceiling frescos by Matthias Kirchner at Bärnstatt Chapel opposite Bärnstatt Inn are well worth seeing.
