This stage takes hikers to the small town of Kufstein located on the banks of the Inn river – a town which has been celebrated in song and is steeped in history and character. Walkers make their way through the lush and verdant beauty of a pasture paradise with cosy huts and mountain restaurants before stopping for a rest at the Brentenjochhütte hut (delicious “Kiachl” are served every Saturday). With so many sights to marvel at, don't forget to keep an eye out for the nearly one thousand species of flowering plants native to the Kaiser Mountains. A final highlight of this stage is the ride on the “Wilder Kaiser” chairlift – a chance to unwind and recharge your batteries as you glide down Sparchen, a district of Kufstein.

This iconic landmark of Kufstein is one of the most remarkable sights in Tirol. Further attractions include the local heritage museum and the world’s largest outdoor organ, the "Heroes’ Organ", which is played daily at 12:00 noon.

Eagle Kick ·A trip to the Gamskogel mountain is a must. Sure, this peak between the Zahmer and Wilder Kaiser Mountains is not the toughest climb in the region, but it promises sweeping views of the Kaisertal Valley and the towering and jagged northern faces of the Wilder Kaiser Mountains.
