Hike the Famous Summits of the Kitzbühel Alps

A selection of beautiful peaks in all 4 corners of a legendary Austrian mountain range.

Description

Stretching from the Inn river to the north, down to the Hohe Tauern National Park in the south, and bordered by the Zillertal and Zell am See regions on either side, the Kitzbühel Alps contain some of the finest peaks in the Eastern Alps.

The hikes contained in this guidebook take in some of the most famous of these summits, and working your way through them will give you a good excuse to travel around the charming towns and villages which dot the region. Even by the high standards of Austria, the restaurants in the Kitzbühel Alps are particularly good, and you won't struggle to stay well fed in between your hiking days!

If you allow yourself a couple of weeks to do these hikes and are lucky with the weather you might have a little time to spare, in which case these adventures will provide a thoroughly enjoyable, albeit tough, end to your trip

If you're STILL hungry for more, then the famous peaks above Innsbruck lie just an hour away from Mayrhofen and offer challenges which will satisfy even the strongest of hikers!
