The panoramic hike takes us from the world-famous Hahnenkamm high above Kitzbühel to a quiet but no less rewarding lookout peak, the Schwarzkogel.

For long stretches we hike on wide forest roads through the ski area. It is only south of the Pengelstein that we leave behind the landscape dominated by lift supports and enter a much more unspoilt mountain world. The paths soon become narrower and the people fewer. While the ski area is bustling even in summer, relatively few hikers stray onto the Schwarzkogel. We, however, enjoy the peace and quiet, as well as the magnificent view of the surrounding mountains. On the way back, a cosy stop at one of the countless mountain inns is a good idea.
