From the Griesner Alm, it is a steep ascent to the summit of the Zahmer Kaiser and then a leisurely descent to Walchsee.

A highpoint of the trip is certainly today’s crossing of the Zahmer Kaiser. A tricky, steep ascent leads to the spectacular setting of Stripsenjochhaus. Rest a little on the observation terrace and watch the climbers master the steep rock faces. A mountain trail takes you to the most stunning mountain landscape to Heuberg via Hochalm, which opens up to the first sight of the beautifully situated Walchsee. A steep descent takes you through the Winkelkar nature reserve to the deserted Großpoitneralm and on the trail to Durchholzen.

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. 

Always allow plenty of time for your hike. The specified walking times only refer to actual time spent walking. Breaks for photos and a rest need to be added to the specified times.

Make sure you find out about current weather conditions and keep an eye on weather changes. Thunderstorms can gather very quickly in the Alps.

Do not leave the designated hiking trails!

Zahmer and Wilder Kaiser  

The Zahmer Kaiser and Wilder Kaiser are the two main ridges that make up the Kaisergebirge mountain range. The Zahmer Kaiser is less rugged in appearance than the Wilder Kaiser and has lower peaks. The two ridges are separated in the west by the Kaisertal valley and in the east by the Kaiserbachtal. The massifs are connected between these two valleys by the Stripsenjoch Pass (1,577 m).


Perched on high like a castle, the Stripsenjochhaus mountain hut is located on the Stripsenjoch Pass where the Kaiserbachtal crosses into the Kaisertal valley. It also forms a bridge between the Wilder and Zahmer Kaiser ridges, its key location earning it the nickname “the turntable”, a kind of alpine traffic hub. From the terrace of the Stripsenjoch it’s possible to see climbers on the sheer rock faces directly opposite. With over 40 mountain peaks to explore, and tours to suit all levels of expertise, it comes as no surprise that the Kaisergebirge has become a mecca for countless climbers. Since as far back as the 19th century mountaineers have looked for new routes up the Wilder Kaiser. And in all weathers too!
