Kitzbühel - Three Peaks

Duration: 8 Days// Total Distance: appr. 67 km//Altitude Difference: 3565m 3351 m//Difficulty: Difficulty 2
Description

The hike leads over the Kitzbüheler Alps into the Hohe Tauern National Park with its glacially shaped valleys and extraordinary floral diversity. The area is getting rougher, the cliffs are steeper and in the distance the iron-covered summits of the three-thousanders and ever closer peaks of the Dolomites come nearer and nearer. Via the Gsieser Törl you finally cross from Austria to Italy. Past lush alpine meadows and huts, you descend into the Gsiesertal valley. Stately courtyards with sun-drenched balconies seem to be scattered randomly over the flower and herb meadows. The stage destination is not far away and another highlight awaits you at the end of the tour: the Three Peaks, located in the middle of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the "Dolomites".

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Kitzbühel
Individual arrival at the hotel in Kitzbühel.

Day 2: Kitzbühel - Aurach - Jochberg (ascent approx. 600 hm - descent approx. 425 hm)
Starting from Kitzbühel, you walk comfortably below the Kitzbüheler Südberge. You will pass small villages and rustic farms with wonderful floral decorations. The village character of Aurach in Tyrol, the various hamlets and settlements and the wonderful location at the foot of the Kitzbüheler Südberge make Aurach special. It is not for nothing that the great Kitzbüheler artist and painter Alfons Walde has chosen the church and the small village square of Aurach as motifs again and again, thus helping them to achieve worldwide fame. Overnight stay in Jochberg.

approx. 4 - 5 hours

Day 3: Jochberg - Gauxjoch - Hartkaserhöhe - Mittersill (ascent approx. 790 hm - descent approx. 800 hm)
A shuttle will take you to the starting point of your trip. Passing through lush alpine pastures below the valley heights, you will continue to hike up into the beautiful mountains. Enjoy the tranquility and the flora and fauna. Via the Gauxjoch you reach the Trattenbachalm and the Hartkaserhöhe. Along the hilltop runs the border between the two provinces of Tyrol and Salzburg. If you want to avoid the descent from the Resterhöhe, you can use the Panoramabahn Kitzbühler Alpen II to shorten some altitude meters (not included in the price). A bus will take you to Mittersill.

approx. 5 - 6 hours

Day 4: Mittersill - Tauernhaus - Venedigerblick - Matrei (ascent approx. 575 hm - descent approx. 575 hm)
In the morning transfer from Mittersill to the Matreier Tauernhaus. If you like, you can also walk from lake Hintersee over the Felbertauern and the St. Pöltener Hütte to the Matreier Tauernhaus. At first, the trail climbs steadily through meadows and larch forests to the Venedigerblick. At the highest point you have a wonderful view of the glacier world of the Großvenediger. Over a well signposted hiking trail, the Großvenediger and the surrounding mountains always in view, you hike in the direction of Innergschlöss and over the beautiful alpine pastures back to the Matreier Tauernhaus. From there you can get to Matrei by public transport.

approx. 3 - 4 hours

Day 5: Mariahilf - Gsieser Törl - Gsiesertal (ascent approx. 775 hm - descent approx. 750 hm)
After a drive to Mariahilf you start today‘s hiking day. Over shady forest paths you go higher and higher up to the first alpine pastures and the Gsieser Törl around which many old smuggler stories rank. It was a smuggler route between Italy and Austria, especially in the 1920s and 1930s. The view sweeps over the valley to the Pragser Dolomites. On your way to the contemplative Gsiesertal, one hut joins the next: Oberberg-, Kradorferalm or Messnerhütte to name just a few. Almost everywhere the local food is amazing. The many traditional dishes are simply too tempting to resist: bacon dumplings on cabbage, cheese dumplings, Kaiserschmarrn, apple strudel ...

approx. 4,5 - 5,5 hours

Day 6: Gsiesertal - Frondeign - Wahlen - Toblach/Dobbiaco (ascent approx. 475 hm - descent approx. 450 hm)
The tour continues to the south and the Dolomites are only a stone‘s throw away. From the Gsiesertal, you continue uphill to Frondeign. The hike is mostly in the shady woods. If you want you can choose the more sporty variant direction „Schuieralm“. The path meanders down to Wahlen. The valley widens and offers a view of the Neunerkofel, Haunold, Dürrenstein and the Höhlensteintal.

approx. 3 - 4 hours

Day 7: Toblach - Höhlensteintal - Drei Zinnen (Three Peaks)- Toblach (ascent approx. 350 hm - descent approx. 350 hm)
You start your tour at the Auronzo hut, which is rechable by public transport (ticket included in the price). Along the south side of the Drei Zinnen you first walk towards the Lavaredohütte and then up a path to the Paternsattel. Here, at 2,454 m above sea level, you can enjoy a magnificent view of the 500 m high north walls of the Drei Zinnen. Arrived at the famous Drei Zinnen hut you can enjoy the view of the northern walls. A hiking trail leads you to the Lange Alm and past the west side you get back to the starting point. Those who want to finish the trip with a sporty end can climb up from Rienzboden to the Lange Alm, circle the Drei Zinnen and take the bus from Auronzo to Dobbiaco (ticket included in the price).
