Sturdy boots will help keep your ankles and feet happy on this hike, full of the best things Tirol has to offer: well-maintained trails, wildflowers galore and waterfalls beckon the adventurous hiker ready for a strenuous climb with breathtaking views of lofty Wilder Kaiser Mountain Range as your reward. The nature reserve’s landscape will win you over with its diverse beauty. The pasture regions are covered with soft grassy meadows, and hikers are greeted by lofty Wilder Kaiser Mountain Range with rugged Maukspitze, Ackerlspitze, Regalpspitze and Törlspitze Peaks, all “Two-Thousanders” that average 2,000 metres altitude. Trailhead is Rummlerhof Inn, northwest of the village centre of St. Johann. After a successful first segment, why not take a rest at Gaudeamus Hut, raise your glass and sing: “Gaudeamus igitur – Let us be happy!” For many hikers this is far enough, contentment has already set in. Adventurous souls continue on the trail that works its way up across Klamml Gorge to Grutten Hut, which entails another 400 metres of climbing.
Eagle View · At the exit of Klamml Gorge enjoy impressive views of the stunning rock massif with its pinnacles, spires, caves, ledges and buttresses. It is called the “Wild Castle”. It is the stuff of legend – but it is best to invent your own story.
Eagle Kick · Klamml Via Ferrata is recommended for experienced climbers only: Suspended perilously across the Via Ferrata’s lower section, graded B/C, and its upper section with some portions graded D, these brave mountaineers need a head for heights as they traverse a 12-metre long rope bridge. Safety equipment for climbers, including a helmet and harness, is mandatory. The Mountain Trail that winds across Klamml Gorge involves some scrambling along the way as well.
