This segment will take you 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. Walk through the lush and verdant beauty of a pasture paradise with cosy huts and mountain restaurants to take a rest (delicious “Kiachl” are served at Brentenjoch Hut every Saturday). With so many sights to see, you should not forget to keep an eye on the wayside – as nearly a thousand of different flowering plants grow in the Kaiser Mountains. A highlight of this segment is the “Wilder Kaiser” chair lift ride – a great chance to wind down and recharge your batteries after having had plenty of wonderful experiences at the heart of nature. The lift ride takes you down to Sparchen, a district of Kufstein.
Eagle View ·You don’t need an eagle’s eye to see Kufstein Fortress as it towers on a 90 metre rock high above the Inn River. The impressive landmark of Kufstein is one of the most remarkable monuments in Tirol. Attractions include the local heritage museum and the world’s largest outdoor organ, named the Heroes’ Organ, which is played daily at 12:00 noon. If you are already tired after a long walk, you can also access Kufstein Fortress very comfortably by a spectacular panorama gondola.
Eagle Kick ·A trip to Gamskogel Peak is a must. Admittedly, this challenge between Zahmer and Wilder Kaiser Ranges is rather more tame than wild in terms of mountaineering skills. But this is the promised land of sweeping views of Kaisertal Valley and the towering and jagged Wilder Kaiser Range!
