Kaisergebirge mountain range in the Tyrolean Alps
Wilder Kaiser and Zahmer Kaiser
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.
