Wilder Kaiser 3D hiking map
The Wilder Kaiser Tourist Board offers a 3D hiking map
on its website and for GPS mobiles. Here, all the hiking routes in Ellmau, Going, Scheffau and Söll can be viewed online and loaded onto your mobile or printed out as a PDF document. Commissioned by the Wilder Kaiser Tourist Board, the Alpstein Austria company managed to accurately georeference and digitalise the entire 400 km network of trails in just nine months. By means of spectacular 3D panoramic flights, the guest can choose from numerous tours. An individual hiking route can be planned in minutes
with all the important information such as walking time, altitude difference, rest stops and suitability for mountain bikes or pushchairs at a glance.
Hiking from hut to hut
There is a remarkably diverse paradise just waiting to be discovered when hiking
in the Wilder Kaiser region. The variety of tours is huge and the combination of mild climate, fresh mountain air and steady physical activity
has a wonderfully revitalising effect on the body. Why not prolong the experience and enjoy some traditional Austrian hospitality along the way with a 3 days' hut-to-hut hike
. This tour takes you to the prettiest spots on the south side of the range where, thanks to the moderate altitude, the tour can be enjoyed from as early as June until mid October
Testimonial from our competition winner Lorraine from Bristol
"I would like to send a very big thank you to you from my husband and I for the absolutely fantastic holiday we have just returned from the Hotel Alpenschlössl in Söll. The hotel was beautiful, the staff were so friendly, the views were amazing! We visited Scheffau one evening to listen to a brass band playing and drink Schnapps! We also went for a wonderful walk from Scheffau up the mountains. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity of visiting your amazing country. We cannot wait to return to the hotel next year!"
