The Kaiserkrone

Wild and free - on old paths around the Wilder Kaiser in 5 days

Die Kaiserkrone - auf ca. 65 km und rund 5.000 Höhenmetern
The Kaiserkrone – on approx. 65 km and about 5,000 altitude metres

The Wilder Kaiser fascinates by its majestic appeal. It towers freely over the Sölllandl, aloof and yet inviting, rough and gentle at once. The Kaiserkrone leads mountain hikers on approx. 65 kilometres and about 5,000 altitude metres up and down once around the impressive massif of the Wilder Kaiser and to the most beautiful places with fantastic views from the Chiemsee to the Großglockner. This tour is a unique trip into a mountain world full of stories and experiences. Depending on snow situation, the Kaiserkrone is accessible from June to Mid-October and is targeted at classic mountain hikers looking for leg lengths in the eight to sixteen kilometre range and walking times of five to eight hours per day (average calculation for the small group, without breaks and adjusted to experience). Six different entrances, easy and difficult alternative routes and the many overnight accommodations along the route permit very flexible and individual route planning.

2017 renovation works at the Gruttenhütte Ellmau!

2017 renovation works at the Gruttenhütte Ellmau!ATTENTION: In summer 2017 there are some renovation works at the Gruttenhütte in Ellmau. Nevertheless the hut is open daily for food & drinks (except when the helicopter is flying). Overnight stays can only be requested short term by phone.

Due to reconstruction work at the Gruttenhütte, there is probably no overnight accommodation in summer 2017. Since the Gaudeamushütte and the Riedlhütte have only limited capacities at the first stage, you have the opportunity to experience the Kaiserkrone from the Wochenbrunner Alm in Ellmau in 4 stages.
