Kitzbühel Alps Score With First Long Distance Hiking Trail For The Whole Family

For children, the path is rarely the goal - it takes more to arouse enthusiasm for hiking and even to keep mountain dwarfs permanently engaged. The experts in the Kitzbüheler Alpen have also thought of this and have now created a new all-round carefree offer with the KAT Walk Family , which leaves neither puff nor motivation by the wayside. From a visit to the petting zoo to climbing adventures and swimming in the mountain lake, numerous highlights along the way provide motivational boosts in between. In addition, there are various "cheat" options by mountain railway or bus, which allow you to get closer to the day's goal if your strength should really dwindle. But at the end of the 5-day adventure trip you are done - the 76 kilometers and around 5000 meters of altitude from Hopfgarten via Kitzbühel to St. Ulrich in the Pillerseetal across the Kitzbühel Alps. In addition, a shorter variant of the route can be chosen every day so that every hiker can experience as many adventures as possible with a minimal distance. The KAT Walk Family makes children strong and proud and gives parents back freedom of movement that many have long missed. True to the motto: We'll be gone together.

And as safe and easy as possible. Because actually you just have to go out and agree on the highlights of the day in advance. The luggage is already ready when you arrive at the chosen accommodation at the end of the stage. These can be pensions, but also small hotels - depending on the desired category. Six nights with half board , luggage transport and maps for the five days of hiking are available from 649 euros per person in a double room . Children enjoy discounts. On the subject of security: The flexible booking system in the Kitzbüheler Alpen scores with a free rebooking guarantee, because you never know if something will come up.

Essentially, the KAT Walk Family follows the route that long-distance hikers know from the classic KAT Walk - the panoramic catwalk that puts world-famous stars like the Hohe Salve or the Hahnenkamm in the spotlight with the legendary Streif descent and on the sunny side through one of the most beautiful regions of the Alps. But it is well known that a view alone is not enough. That's why the hits for kids are integrated along the way - and everything reads completely differently.

If more time is needed for the highlights, you can use the mountain railways to make up the route. On the last stage over to the Pillerseetal, even a small bus transfer is recommended for tired heroes. Instead of hiking over lonely alpine pastures, there is still enough time for the Jakobskreuz , which rises up into the sky on the Buchensteinwand at 30 meters as the largest accessible summit cross in the world .On day one, it's not just from Hopfgarten to the destination of the first day's stage to Brixen im Thale, but rather: to the Hohe Salve with the Umadum-Stub'n , which rotates on its own axis (the host can accelerate the carousel if necessary) and to Filzalmsee , where numerous nature discovery stations await curious adventurers. Day two leads to Kirchberg's local mountain - the Gaisberg . In the course of the 8 puzzle stations, hikers of all ages will find, among other things, forest slides, the Obergaisbergsee with a giant swing and a walkable “Goas”. On the way to Kitzbühel there is an adventure playground next to the start house of the legendary Streif , while the next day the youngsters can burn off excess energy in the Hornpark climbing forest and dash down to the valley with mountain carts before bed calls in St. Johann in Tirol.
