Description

From the village center you walk along the Treffauerbach up to the Jägerwirt (No. 814). Continue past the Wegscheid-Niederalm and over the footpath to the Wegscheid-Hochalm (trail no. 826). Walk uphill to the Wilder-Kaiser-Steig (WKS Nr. 823) and follow it to the left towards the west. After approx. 45 minutes you reach the Kaiser-Hochalm, with fantastic views over the Kitzbühel Alps to the Großglockner. Now begins the descent to Kaiseralm (No. 826). The short, steep climb to the Seilabodenkreuz (1.200 m) is directly behind the Kaiseralm, which also offers a refreshment stop. Arriving at the cross, you should stop for a moment and enjoy the view before you follow the path to the Kaiser-Niederalm. From the pasture (not managed) go on the road until just before the farms Schießling. There you turn left to the Jägerwirt (trail no. 826) and return to the village via the driveway.

The Sailabodenkreuz invites you to slow down and reflect.
All the Alpine pastures on this route feature picturesque places for a break and the Kaiseralm provides an opportunity for refreshments.

Shorter variant: After the Wegscheid-Niederalm at the crossroads "Kaiseregg" it goes left directly to the Kaiseralm (route no. 814) - this shortens the tour by about 2 hours.
