Hiking Kitzbühel – Three Peaks

On unknown trails over the Alps

Difficulty Level:
Duration: 8 days
Landscape:

Starting point of this hiking tour is Kitzbühel, a winter sports resort with long tradition. However, even before the skiers discovered the so-called „Gamsstadt“. The hike leads over the Kitzbüheler Alps into the Hohe Tauern National Park and ending with the Three Peaks, located in the middle of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

With its glacially shaped valleys and extraordinary floral diversity at the beginning 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 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.

Day 2

(ascent approx. 600 m, descent approx. 426 m/approx. 4-5 hours)

Starting from Kitzbühel, you walk comfortably below the Kitzbüheler Südberge. You will pass small villages and rustic farms with wonderful floral decorations. The village character of Aurach in Tyrol, the various hamlets and settlements and the wonderful location at the foot of the Kitzbüheler Südberge make Aurach special. It is not for nothing that the great Kitzbüheler artist and painter Alfons Walde has chosen the church and the small village square of Aurach as motifs again and again, thus helping them to achieve worldwide fame. Overnight stay in Jochberg.

Day 3: Jochberg – Gauxjoch – Hartkaserhöhe – Mittersill

(ascent approx. 790 m, descent approx. 800 m/approx. 5-6 hours or ascent approx. 875 m, descent approx. 250 m/approx. 4-5 hours)

A shuttle will take you to the starting point of your trip. Passing through lush alpine pastures below the valley heights, you will continue to hike up into the beautiful mountains. Enjoy the tranquility and the flora and fauna. Via the Gauxjoch you reach the Trattenbachalm and the Hartkaserhöhe. Along the hilltop runs the border between the two provinces of Tyrol and Salzburg. If you want to avoid the descent from the Resterhöhe, you can use the Panoramabahn Kitzbühler Alpen II to shorten some altitude meters (not included in the price). A bus will take you to Mittersill.

Day 4: Mittersill – Tauernhaus - Venedigerblick - Matrei

(ascent approx. 575 m, descent approx. 575 m / approx. 3-4 hours - Alternative 1: Hintersee -St.Pöltener Hütte - Tauernhaus; ascent approx. 1225 m, descent approx. 1025 m / approx. 5.5 - 6.5 hours Alternative 2: Innergschlöß ascent approx. 225 m, descent approx. 225 m / approx. 3 hours)

In the morning transfer from Mittersill to the Matreier Tauernhaus. If you like, you can also walk from lake Hintersee over the Felbertauern and the St. Pöltener Hütte to the Matreier Tauernhaus. At first, the trail climbs steadily through meadows and larch forests to the Venedigerblick. At the highest point you have a wonderful view of the glacier world of the Großvenediger. Over a well signposted hiking trail, the Großvenediger and the surrounding mountains always in view, you hike in the direction of Innergschlöss and over the beautiful alpine pastures back to the Matreier Tauernhaus. From there you can get to Matrei by public transport.

Day 5: Matrei – Mariahilf – Gsieser Törl – Gsiesertal

(ascent approx. 775 m, descent approx. 750 m / approx. 4.5 – 5.5 hours)

After a drive to Mariahilf you start today‘s hiking day. Over shady forest paths you go higher and higher up to the first alpine pastures and the Gsieser Törl around which many old smuggler stories rank. It was a smuggler route between Italy and Austria, especially in the 1920s and 1930s. The view sweeps over the valley to the Pragser Dolomites. On your way to the contemplative Gsiesertal, one hut joins the next: Oberberg-, Kradorferalm or Messnerhütte to name just a few. Almost everywhere the local food is amazing. The many traditional dishes are simply too tempting to resist: bacon dumplings on cabbage, cheese dumplings, Kaiserschmarrn, apple strudel.

(ascent approx. 475 m, descent approx. 450 m / approx. 3-4 hours or ascent approx. 825 m, descent approx. 800 m / approx. 5-6 hours)

The tour leads further and further south and the Dolomites are only a stone‘s throw away. From the Gsiesertal valley, the trail climbs steadily and comfortably to the crossing of Frondeign. The hike is mostly in the shady forest. If you prefer, you can take the more athletic option towards the „Schuieralm“. The path winds its way down to Wahlen. The valley widens and offers a view of the Neunerkofel, Haunold, Dürrenstein and the Höhlenstein valley.
