Alternative route guidance Kaiserkrone 2017
Due to reconstruction work on the Gruttenhütte
Due to reconstruction work at the Gruttenhütte, there will probably be no overnight accommodation possibilities in summer 2017. Since the Gaudeamushütte and the Riedlhütte have only limited capacities at the first stage of the Kaiserkrone, you have the opportunity to experience the Kaiserkrone from the Wochenbrunner Alm in Ellmau in 4 stages.
Due to the modified route guidance, the original stages 5 and 1 were combined. This results in different walking times of the original route.
Details can be found in the stages of the alternative route guidance below.
Explanation of alternative route guidance:
Instead of the original stage 1 you start with stage 2, but with a new starting point at the Wochenbrunner Alm in Ellmau.
Stages 3 and 4 remain identical to the original route guidance.
At the fifth stage (Day 4), do not take the planned descent to Going, but instead, you will return to the starting point, the "Wochenbrunner Alm", via the upper Regalm, the Bergsteigergrab and the Gaudeamushütte.
