Adventure world Wilder Kaiser

Your summer holiday

Your summer holiday on the Wilder Kaiser leaves nothing to be desired. You will be impressed!

Over 700 km of marked hiking paths will make hiker’s heart’s beat faster and impress with their wonderful panoramas and views of the imposing Wilder Kaiser. However, the region is not only the perfect holiday destination for hikers but also climbers, walkers or paragliders.

Experience the unique atmosphere in idyllic resting points and enjoy the fantastic view, cool drinks and tasty treats from the region.

You decide whether you want to explore the mountain landscape with a guided hiking group, or would rather reach the summit under your own steam - whether on foot or comfortably by train.
