Hiking in the Kitzbühel Alps – Hohe Salve Region

The region around the Hohe Salve mountain is home to wonderful views of 3,000-metre-peaks and quiet hikes far from the madding crowd with plenty of lakes, huts, meadows and pastures.

Standing tall above the Brixental Valley and the Sölllandl area, the Hohe Salve peak at 1,829 metres above sea level is one of the most popular mountains in Tirol, not least thanks to its fantastic views its offers of many mountains over 3,000 metres such as the mighty Großvenediger and the Großglockner, Austria's highest mountain. The summit can be reached quickly and easily using a cable car from Hopfgarten. Visitors who wish to get away from the crowds should head to Kelchsau with its easy and intermediate hikes such as the one up onto the 2,447-metre-high Schafsiedel peak, passing the three crystal-clear Wildalmseen lakes on the way. The area around the small town of Wörgl in the north-west of the region is perfect for families. Try the child-friendly walk up to the Möslalm hut. Cool days out even on hot summer day can be found at the Hundalm cave with its amazing ice formation, stalagmites and stalactites. Those in search of a challenge can take on the first stage of the Kat Walk starting from Hopfgarten.
