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.
