Kaiserkrone - around the Wilder Kaiser in 5 days

Kaiserkrone - around the Wilder Kaiser in 5 days

Description

The five stages of the Kaiserkrone can be customised and also feature a range of options for overnight stays in some cases. The various entrances and exits, the many huts and the shorter Alpine routes and summit ascents make it possible to tackle the Kaiserkrone in a variety of ways.

The starting point is in Going, Hüttling (820 m). A forest road takes you past the Graspoint-Niederalm mountain hut and up to the Obere Regalm. From here, walk past the Baumgartenköpfl mountain featuring the Bergsteigergrab, the last rest stop on the “Koasamuch”, and head towards the Gaudeamushütte mountain hut, where the fantastic view into the Ellmauer Tor inspires you (overnight stays also available). The trail leads you through the impressive Klamml up to the Gruttenhütte, the highest hut on the Wilder Kaiser and the starting point for many climbers and mountaineers.

The next stage takes you along the Wilder-Kaiser-Steig trail through mountain pines and forest sections to the Kaiser-Hochalm, an idyllic alpine pasture landscape and on to the Steiner-Hochalm. After a refreshment stop, you continue along the Jägersteig trail to the Walleralm, at the foot of the Zettenkaiserkopf and on to the Hochegg with marvellous views as far as the Inntal valley. The trail leads across alpine pastures to the high plateau of the Kaindlhütte.

On the northern side of the Wilder Kaiser, the Bettlersteig trail takes you past two gorges as you make your way to the Anton-Karg-Haus. You should then continue to the Hans-Berger-Haus and onward until you reach the Stripsenjochhaus, which offers fantastic views over the Totenkirchl and Predigtstuhl rock faces that are several hundred metres high.

Walk on via the Stripsenkopf, the Feldberg and the Scheibenbichlberg mountains as you head down into the romantic Kaiserbachtal valley. This route offers a whole series of wonderful views into wild rocky gorges such as the Steinerne Rinne in the south or up to Chiemsee lake in the north. From Griesenau, this stage leads along the Engelbach stream and continues on the forest road until you reach Gasteig.

The Maukspitze summit is a constant presence on this stage, which heads south along the Wilder-Kaiser-Steig trail as it passes through the forest and across Alpine pastures on the way to the Ursulablick viewpoint. Crossing the Niederkaiser, you are able to reach the Graspoint-Hochalm. The return leg takes you via the Graspoint-Niederalm as you head back to the starting point in Going, Hüttling.

See the individual stages of the Kaiserkrone for further details.

Caution:
Obere Regalm – in the summer, food is served only on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, Middle September until Middle October Saturdays & Sundays - only when the weather is good.
the Steiner-Hochalm only serves drinks!

We recommend starting the Kaiserkrone on a Sunday or Monday, as the weekends at the huts are usually very well booked and there can be difficulties with availability.
