Arrival to Kitzbühel
Circular walk Bichlach
The hiking weeks kicks off with an absolute classic. You hike through a marvelous hillscape with wonderful paths through lush meadows, idyllic moorland and extensive forests. From Lake Schwarzsee you proceed along traditional farmhouses to glistening ponds, enjoy the view onto the impressive Wilder Kaiser-rock massif as a backdrop.
By cable car up to the Kitzbüheler Horn, the highest summit amidst this fabulous mountain world. Take enough time to relish to the full the 360-degree panoramic view and the view onto the surrounding mountain chains and countless peaks. In the Alpine flower garden, you get to marvel at over 300 different alpine plants from all over the world. Then towards the valley across meadows and past idyllic alps, a panorama-tour at its finest!
A short bus journey to Erpfendorf, where you will hike into the wild-romantic Griesbach-ravine for an extensive tour. 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. Via a forest trail you descend to the shores of the river Großache, a pretty riverbank path leads you into the picturesque little village of St. Johann.
Today you walk along the tracks of pilgrims along the Tyrolean Way of St. James. Through the Öfenschlucht-gorge you reach the historic pilgrimage church St. Adolari and then all the way to the shores of the turquoise Lake Pillersees. The rugged rock spires of the Steinberg-mountains and the blue shell-symbol of the pilgrims guide you to Flecken, where you take a chair lift high up to the mountain face ‚Buchensteinwand‘. 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.
At the end of your hiking week a genuine natural treasure awaits: from Jochberg you ascend in the shade through the Sintersbach-basin to the same-named waterfall, which debouches over a height of 85 metres over steep rocks. The unbridled power of nature can be felt again in an especially intense fashion before you embark inspired and recharged on the descent into the valley via the impressive Drachensteig-trail.
Departure or extension
At all times you walk on well-maintained hiking paths and on alp paths with great views, as well as forest paths, trail and in parts on forest roads. A good basic fitness level and in parts surefootedness is recommended for walking times of up to 5 hours in order to fully enjoy the diverse daily tours. Oftentimes there are several options available to shorten the slightly longer stages
