A 09:00am transfer brings you to the peaceful town of Gasteig, the start of today's walk. On to the Kaiserbach valley, a deep gully separating the Wilder and Zahmer Kaisers before a challenging, steep ascent that brings you to the spectacularly located Stripsenjochhaus, at 1,580m.

Safety information

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!

Tips and hints

Hermitage

The Maria Blut hermitage has been inhabited for 300 years and visitors are assured of a warm welcome.

Gmailkapelle

After passing through a forested area the trail climbs steeply to the Gmailkapelle, a beautiful baroque chapel with rococo stuccowork inside. The perfect spot to rest a while and recharge your batteries!

Alpine Outdoor Gallery

The Alpine Outdoor Gallery is a fascinating discovery trail in the Kaiserbachtal conservation area. A series of seven panels along the path following the Kaiserbach stream, provide a wealth of information on important figures from the world of wintersports. The second section, an adventure trail specially designed for younger visitors, tells the story of the happy shepherd ("Schnackler") and the cheeky elf ("Koasabacher").
