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