Winter hike
Römerweg Hike

Kitzbühel is known throughout Austria and beyond as one of the most luxurious and exclusive winter resorts in the world. It is also the half-way point for this winter hike at the foot of the mighty Kitzbüheler Horn mountain. The Römerweg, which was once used by the Romans, leads hikers from Oberndorf through the beautiful winter landscape, past chapels, wayside shrines, barns and farmhouses. The crisp alpine air and warm sunshine provide plenty of energy for the 15km march. The final section of the walk passes the the Schwarzsee lake and Steuerberg mountain on the way back to Oberndorf.
