The starting point is in Going, Hüttling (840 m). A forest path will take you across the Graspoint Niederalm up to the Obere Regalm. From here, you will hike across the Brennender Palven with the mountaineer's grave, the last resting place of the "Koasamuch", towards the Gaudeamushütte. The path will lead you through the impressive Klamml and up to the Gruttenhütte, the highest cottage on the Wilder Kaiser and the starting point for many climbers and mountaineers.
The next leg will take you around the Treffauer to the Kaiser-Hochalm, an idyllic mountain meadow landscape, through pine and forest sections. Continue up to the Steiner Hochalm. After strengthening drinks and harp music, continue downhill to the Hintersteiner See. The crystal-clear mountain lake offers a welcome refreshment for tired feet.
From the Hintersteiner See, you can hike up to the Walleralm, at the foot of the Zettenkaiserkopf and on to the Hochegg with its wonderful views all the way to the Inn valley. The path leads across mountain meadows to the plateau of the Kaindlhütte. At the North side of the Wilder Kaiser, the Bettlersteig will lead you past two gorges to the Anton-Karg-Haus, on to the Hans-Berger-Haus and then the Stripsenjochhaus with fantastic views of the rock walls of the Totenkirchl and Predigtstuhl, several hundred metres high.
The route continues across the Stripsenkopf, the Feldberg and the Scheibenbichlberg, down to the romantic Kaiserbachtal. This route offers many fantastic views of the wild rock gorges such as the Steinerne Rinne to the South or all the way to the Chiemsee to the North. From Griesenau, this leg continues to the Engelbach and then along the forest path to Gasteig.
Always in view of the Maukspitze, this leg leads southwards onto the Wilder Kaiser path through the forest and across mountain meadows. Hike across the Niederkaiser to the Graspoint-Hochalm and across the Graspoint Niederalm back to the starting point in Going, Hüttling.
