Description

Start from the Stripsenjochhaus mountain hut heading south on path 812. After the first steep section, turn on to the “Wildanger” and walk south on the Eggersteig trail towards the Ellmauer Tor. Heading along the exposed crossing, which is secured in some sections, you come to the Steinerne Rinne cirque. This is one of the most fascinating trails, taking you on a seemingly endless climb up into the Ellmauer Tor. When the weather is good, you will be able to see climbers on the rock faces of the Fleischbank and Predigtstuhl mountains. Soak up the impressions provided by the “heart of the Wilder Kaiser region”. From the Ellmauer Tor, there is a wonderful view looking south over Ellmau and Going as far as the Kitzbühel Alps.

Tip for climbing enthusiasts with experience: ascent to the Hintere Goinger Halt mountain (2,192 m)

Now follow path 812, descending through the wide screes of the Kübelkar cirque and a short passage secured with ropes. Keep heading south until you reach the Gaudeamushütte mountain hut.

Make the descent to Ellmau and travel to Going with the bus for hikers and bathers, or walk the first stage of the Kaiserkrone in the opposite direction. This latter option will bring you back to the starting point of the Kaiserkrone in Going.

Eggersteig trail difficulty: A/B
Requirements: a good head for heights and surefootedness; helmet for protection against rock fall
Recommended: via ferrata set, climbing harness
