A popular hiking destination is, among others, the high-altitude promenade, enjoyable and easy is the Sisi circular hiking trail. If you have the whole day, don't miss the "Pinzgau Walk"!
Hiking on the Kitzsteinhorn
The contrast to the gentle grass mountains is the majestic world of the Kitzsteinhorn in Kaprun. The glacier region is situated directly at the entrance to the Hohe Tauern and offers you high alpine views. If you don't want to hike on your own, it's best to rely on the experience of qualified guides and hiking guides who will accompany you safely through rock and ice. Further down in the valley is the family mountain Maiskogel. It offers child-friendly hiking trails and cosy huts. The two mountains - the Kitzsteinhorn and the Maiskogel - can be combined via the well-known Alexander Enzinger Trail.
Huts and alpine pastures
The most important thing on any hike? A stop for refreshments, of course. The cosy huts and alpine pastures in the Zell am See-Kaprun region invite you to take a break or spend the night on the mountain. After a hiking tour, you can look forward to homemade specialities, regional delicacies and cold drinks. Many alpine huts also produce their own cheese, bacon or butter: be sure to try them!
Guided hiking and mountain tours
On the way to the peaks, the experience and knowledge of the qualified mountain guides are particularly important: they take you safely to the world of the three-thousand-metre-high peaks and back to the valley again. Hiking guides accompany you on family-friendly hikes and tell interesting things about flora and fauna on herbal tours.
