Kaisergebirge information

Lonely Planet review

The Kaisergebirge range is a sheer wall of limestone to the east of Kufstein, rising to 2300m and stretching as far as St Johann in Tirol. It attracts walkers, mountaineers and skiers alike. The Kaisergebirge is actually two ranges, split by the east–west Kaisertal valley. The northern range is the Zahmer Kaiser (Tame Emperor) and the southern is the Wilder Kaiser (Wild Emperor) – no medals for guessing which has the smoother slopes! Pick up a free Wanderkarte (walking map) from the tourist office.
