The Hagstein route is a modest hike up to Gasthof Hagstein Inn, through evergreen spruce forest dusted with luxurious snow. The 5-kilometer route provides plenty of local scenery to admire and enjoy, but the real thrill is found on the upper slopes, high above Kitzbühel, where sweeping views encompass the majority of the Kitzbühel Alps. It takes some 1.5 hours to complete and no previous snowshoe experience is required.
