Highlights and places of interest along the route:


Starting point of this crossing of the Alps is the town of Kitzbühel. The village became known worldwide through the annual Hahnenkamm ski race. It is home to many famous names like Toni Sailer, Hansi Hinterseer and the painter Alfons Walde. Thanks to the well-preserved town center, it is one of the most beautiful small towns in Tyrol.
The hike leads over the Kitzbüheler Alps into the Hohe Tauern National Park with its glacially shaped valleys and extraordinary floral diversity. The area is getting rougher, the cliffs are steeper and in the distance the iron-covered summits of the three-thousanders and ever closer peaks of the Dolomites come nearer and nearer. Via the Gsieser Törl you finally cross from Austria to Italy. Past lush alpine meadows and huts, you descend into the Gsiesertal valley. Stately courtyards with sun-drenched balconies seem to be scattered randomly over the flower and herb meadows. The stage destination is not far away and another highlight awaits you at the end of the tour: the Three Peaks, located in the middle of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the “Dolomites”.

Characteristics of the route:

The hike runs along marked mountain and hiking trails. The tour is suitable for anyone with a good basic condition. Climbing skills are not necessary. Larger climbs are overcome by cable car and it is possible to shorten the stages by using public transport and/or taxi.
The hiking trip is suitable for children over 14 years.
