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.

Sturdy boots will help keep your ankles and feet happy on this hike, full of the best things Tirol has to offer: well-maintained trails, wildflowers galore and waterfalls beckon the adventurous hiker ready for a strenuous climb with breathtaking views of lofty Wilder Kaiser Mountain Range as your reward. The nature reserve’s landscape will win you over with its diverse beauty. The pasture regions are covered with soft grassy meadows, and hikers are greeted by lofty Wilder Kaiser Mountain Range with rugged Maukspitze, Ackerlspitze, Regalpspitze and Törlspitze Peaks, all “Two-Thousanders” that average 2,000 metres altitude. Trailhead is Rummlerhof Inn, northwest of the village centre of St. Johann. After a successful first segment, why not take a rest at Gaudeamus Hut, raise your glass and sing: “Gaudeamus igitur – Let us be happy!” For many hikers this is far enough, contentment has already set in. Adventurous souls continue on the trail that works its way up across Klamml Gorge to Grutten Hut, which entails another 400 metres of climbing.
