You’ll ascend steadily to Ehrenbachhöhe through woodland and across alpine meadows. There are plenty of lodges where you can choose to take a break en route. Once you arrive at the summit, you can either take the Hahnenkammbahn cable car to Kitzbühel or walk down the famous ski piste into the valley. The walk will take you past the starting blocks, where you can take in the same view as the professionals before they race off down the piste.


Be sure to spend some time enjoying the view from Ehrenbachhöhensee reservoir!

Stop for lunch at Hahnenkammstüberl (directly adjacent to theHahnenkammbahn cable car)

Today you may be walking past a few different areas where cows graze. Although generally very docile and used to walkers, keep your distance and never turn your back on a cow that is behaving strangely or aggressive. Be particularly vigilant around cows with calves. 

A number of sections of this walk pass through fields containing livestock. Always look out for animals when entering a field. Keep your distance from the animals and remember to close gates after you.

As you’ll be climbing and descending at significant heights, we recommend the use of trekking poles.

The weather can change rapidly in the mountains, so always carry waterproofs with you. Don’t forget that your exposure to sunlight increases and the temperature decreases as you climb to higher altitudes.
