Kaisergebirge

Description

Kaisergebirge

The Kaisergebirge is one of the highlights of the Northern Limestone Alps. The area lies in the north of Austria near the German border, near Kufstein, the best place to start.

It is a beautiful and popular mountain area, not that large, but exceptionally beautiful. On the north side is a mountain range called the Kaiser Zahmer. To the south lies the Wilder Kaiser, with the Ellmauer Halt (2344 m) as its highest summit. In between the charming Kaisertal is situated, with the spectacular limestone mountains towering above.

The dramatic walls and sharp peaks are a paradise for climbers. For the experienced walker, there are good hiking possibilities too, but the traverse of the limestone ranges themselves is not simple. The highest peaks can be reached by the average hiker. And those who like to climb along the Klettersteige (Via Ferrata) will find many routes.

A good and safe walk is a four day trip around the Wilder Kaiser massif. Alternatively, one can climb the Pyramidenspitze (1997 m), the highest point of the Zahmer Kaiser, or the Ellmauer Halt itself. Of course, you can expect a good selection of huts in the Kaisergebirge.
