Atmospheric winter hike right into the Wilder Kaiser.
Distance 5.7 km
This hike starts at the bathing lake car park in Going and takes you a short way up into the majestic Kaisergebirge mountain range. Follow Aschauerweg across the bathing lake and enjoy the spectacular view of Going. From here, you can also marvel at the Kitzbüheler Horn mountain. Stay on the trail, passing traditional, family-run farms. Take the turnoff at “Moor & more” and then continue walking uphill through the winter forest in the direction of the Graspoint-Niederalm. On the way, you will pass the impressive Aschingerkapelle chapel, which was built from local pine wood in 2008 and is certainly worth a look inside. The wide route leads gently to Graspoint-Niederalm at 1,075 metres. The mountain hut nestles among dark fir trees and lies sheltered in front of the snowy rock faces of the Wilder Kaiser. Landlady Sabine serves homemade refreshments in the hut’s traditional Tirolean parlour.
