Pull on your walking boots and join us on a hike across Tirol! The first stage of the Eagle Walk provides a truly spectacular start to what is set to be an unforgettable journey from east to west. We begin our adventure in the Kaiser Mountains with their craggy grey peaks towering above lush green meadows. Some of the most famous mountains in this part of Tirol include the Maukspitze, Ackerlspitze, Regalpspitze and Törlspitze, all of which are over 2,000 metres high. The hike begins at the Gasthaus Rummlerhof, a guesthouse to the north-west of the centre of St. Johann. Upon arrival at your destination, the Gaudeamushütte, you can raise your glass and to a successful day and sing: "Gaudeamus igitur - Let us be happy!". Alternatively, why not add an extra challenge and take on the 400 vertical metres up to the Gruttenhütte?
Eagle View · At the exit of the Klamml gorge there are impressive views of the stunning rock massif with its pinnacles, spires, caves, ledges and buttresses. Known as the “Wild Castle”, it is the stuff of legends – but it is best to invent your own story.
Eagle Kick · The Klamml via ferrata is recommended for experienced climbers only. A spectacular 12-metre-long bridge connects the via ferrata’s lower section (graded B/C) and its upper section with some sections graded D. Safety equipment for climbers, including a helmet and harness, is mandatory. The mountain trail that winds its way across Klamml gorge also involves some climbing.
Tip! There is a Black Diamond Service Station at the Gaudeamushütte, where hikers who have broken a walking pole or lost a glove can get a free replacement.
