Enchanting Kitzbühel with Charm

Hiking Rally in the Tyrolean Alps.

Kitzbühel: a place the whole world knows for a skiing event. Where in the winter months the downhill and slalom skiers plunge down - literally - and the celebrities toast with champagne, is also a great place for hiking in summer. Idyllic alpine pastures, imposing mountain peaks, rustic huts, dreamlike nature await you - and a 4-star boutique hotel as a base for your tours.

Details of the tour with charm in Kitzbühel

On the "tour based in one hotel" you can expect varied day tours, in the evening you always return to your "hotel home". The first stage of the Tyrol tour leads to the emerald-green Schwarzsee, a small moor lake with wonderful views of the Wilder Kaiser. If you like this stage, then you will really go into raptures on day 2: Take the cable car up to the Kitzbüheler Horn. The hike leads from the summit to the valley with countless panoramas of the surrounding mountains.

The three other hikes could not be more varied: Action-packed in the Griesbachklamm gorge, one day later you hike along the Tyrolean section of the Jakobsweg trail and the final tour takes you to the Sintersbach waterfall.

Highlights of the 8-day trip

  • Rocky peaks, green meadows and rustic alpine pastures: over 1,000 km of hiking trails await visitors to this unique region. The nature around the Grasberge, the Streif and the Kitzbüheler Horn is simply fantastic.
  • Culture & enjoyment in charming Kitzbühel: Jewellery boutiques, great gastronomy and rustic cosiness - let yourself be swept away by the flair of the Hahnenkamm town.
  • Tyrolean delicacies in the mountain huts: Whether Kässpatzen, Speckknödel or Tiroler Gröstl - after so much exercise and experiences in the fresh air, you can confidently dive into the wonderful specialities of Tyrolean cuisine.
  • Roaring waterfalls and gorges: Hiking can also be adventurous and that's what it is on this tour, where, among other things, suspension bridges and wildly romantic rivers are waiting to be explored. Balancing on narrow footbridges over rushing streams - that gets you going!
  • Cable car rides to countless panoramic peaks: The Kitzbühel Alpen Sommer Card is included in your trip, which means you can use 38 mountain railways free of charge. The views are worth it! 

Useful information about the tour with Eurohike

The stages with a length of 11 to 15 kilometres can usually be completed in around five hours walking time. Good walking shoes are advantageous for the sometimes rocky climbs. Some stages can be shortened and the cable car rides save a lot of altitude.

You proceed across impressive chain bridges and adventurous footbridges sometimes only just an inch above the water exploring the gorge. Along the Jägersteig-trail up to the quaint hut ‚Huberalm‘, here we highly recommend you take a break and enjoy a proper alpine meal.

At an altitude of 1450m you find the accessible cross ‚Jakobskreuz‘, combined with a mountain chapel and panorama viewing platform. You descend into the valley via the educational flower path.
