Hartkaiserweg trail

Description

This tour is perfect for those who prefer walking downhill to walking uphill.
Walk to the Hartkaiserbahn valley station and take the comfortable gondola lift to the Hartkaiser at an elevation of 1,550 metres. At the top, a short circular walk takes you through the forest to the photo point featuring a panoramic frame for taking shots with the Wilder Kaiser in the background. At the Kaiserexpress chairlift, head downhill along the prepared winter hiking trail. After a short walk you will reach the next stop, the Jägerhütte mountain inn. From here, continue on to the rustic Rübezahl-Alm mountain hut. It is worth taking a detour to the Berggasthof Hochschwendt mountain inn, where you can enjoy its popular cakes and Tirolean specialities. This is followed by a gentle walk back down into the valley past the Bergdoktorhaus (used as a location for the German-Austrian TV series “Der Bergdoktor” (The Mountain Doctor)).
