With the foothills of the Chiemgau Alps to the north and the eye-catching Kaiser Mountains to the south, the Kaiserwinkl Region offers plenty of walking and hiking for both families and experts alike.
Surrounded on all sides by the towering peaks of the Zahmer Kaiser and Wilder Kaiser Mountains as well as the rolling hills of the Chiemgau Alps, the Kaiserwinkl Region enjoys an idyllic location bringing together the many contrasts which make Tirol unique. The area near the German border has mainly family-friendly paths and a lush, hilly landscape. More ambitious walkers and hikers will find plenty of challenges further south in the craggy peaks of the Wilder Kaiser. For foodies we recommend a visit to the Burgeralm hut above the village of Rettenschöss. It is an easy three-hour walk to get there, but the reward is a chance to try some of the dairy's tangy mountain cheese. The hike from Kufstein via the Stripsenjochhaus hut and the Feldalmsattel ridge to the shores of the Walchsee lake takes two days, with accommodation provided at 1,580 metres above sea level in the Stripsenjochhaus overlooking the alpine foothills of Bavaria.
