Kaisergebirge mountain range in the Tyrolean Alps

Wilder Kaiser and Zahmer Kaiser

bauernhof_gintsberg_winter
The Kaisergebirge mountain range in the Tyrol Lowlands

The "Kaisergebirge" mountain range nature conservation area - which incorporates all the summits of the Wilder (Wild) and Zahmer Kaiser (Tame Emperor) mountain ranges, covers some 102 km² and extends from 480 metres to an altitude of 2.344 metres at the Ellmauer Halt peak - is a part of the Northern Limestone Alps and consists most notably of Wetterstein limestone, which gives it a silvery appearance, and dolomite. To the north, preceding the Wilder Kaiser, is the Zahmer Kaiser chain of mountains, mostly forested with mountain pines and the "Vordere Kesselschneid" (2.001 m) as its highest elevation. The history of the people in the Kaisergebirge dates back some 5.000 years, documented by finds of remains from Stone Age hunters in Tischofer Cave near Kufstein. The settling of the Kaisertal valley in the Middle Ages dates back to the year 1430 AD with a deed of sale for a farm called the "Hinterkaiser". The name "Kaiser" (Emperor) for the entire area probably refers to it having been an imperial property and lease and is documented for the first time in the year 1240 AD in a text about a chamois hunt.

The development of tourism in the 19th century

The awe inspiring aura of the Kaiser Mountain has given rise to a great deal of myths and legends, which are somewhat woven around the emergence of specific rock formations. Emperor Charles the Great is said to rest there and indeed, starting from the west, the profile of a lying figure can be seen in the crest line. The development of tourism began in the Wilder Kaiser area in the latter half of the 19th century. By the turn of the century the majority of first ascents of the summits had been documented, although locals had been climbing the peaks of the Kaiser long before this, without any of the details having been put down on record. Up until World War I the Munich climbing scene in particular found the conditions here ideal, among them climbing pioneers such as Fritz Schmitt and Hans Dülfer who developed innovative climbing techniques and who also wrote about them. The hikers and mountaineers of these days discovered the special magic of the Wilder Kaiser while on their tours in the mountains and already enjoyed rest and refreshment in the alpine huts, like the Gaudeamushütte and the Gruttenhütte.
