Hiking: Discover the Tyrol and Wilder Kaiser region

Hiking paths and hiking tips in the Kaiser mountains

The distinctive rocky pinnacles of the Wilder Kaiser mountains are the symbol of the Wilder Kaiser region in Tyrol. Hiking paths lead through mountain forests, then alpine meadows and lastly through scree fields interspersed with mountain pine to the base of steep rock faces and deep, narrow passages in the rock. On the opposite side of the valley the gently rolling grass hills of the northern Kitzbüheler Alps are much easier to hike thanks to the gondola lifts and panoramic paths, at the same time offering a spectacular view of the rocky crown of the Wilde Kaiser (Wild Emperor).
