The Wilde Kaiser Mountains do not only have impressive rocky formations, but also beautiful slopes and panoramic terraces covered with green vegetation. The Stripsenjochhaus stands on one of these, at the crossing from the Kaiserbachtal Valley to the Kaisertal Valley, where the tame and the wild Kaiser Mountains converge. Guests greet each other here warmly too, as this is a much visited place for refreshments and accommodation enjoyed by hikers and mountain climbers alike. Climbing, biking and even flying can all be enjoyed from here in equal measures and paragliders like to launch from Stripsenjoch. Something the founding fathers of the Kufstein Section of the Alpine Association could never have imagined when they built the Stripsenjochhaus at the beginning of the 20th Century. Challenging tours in the Kaiser Mountains, however, could certainly be made then.
