|Across the valleys of the Kaisergebirge|
Mountain forests, mountain pastures and peaks from St. Johann to Kufstein
DownloadsFact Sheet Natura Trails
In the south of the ravine (which runs east to west), the harsh peaks of the Wilder Kaiser arise and together with the Ellmauer Halt reach an altitude of 2344 metres. Together with the Vordere Kesselschneid, the – neither gentle – peaks of the Zahmer Kaiser that adjoins in the north are 2001 metres above sea level. The valleys climb up to the 1577-metre high Stripsenjoch, which marks the watershed: In the west, the Kaiser- or Sparchenbach flows through the mountain range and at Kufstein disembogues into the Inn with a small chasm, the Sparchenklamm. In the east, the water flows off into the Kaisertalbach.
On the 11th of July 2009, the Naturefriends and the Austrian Federal Forests (ÖBf AG) invited to celebrate the opening of the “Natura Trail Kaisertal” in combination with the re-opening of the Hans Berger House of the Naturefriends Kufstein. The opening took place in the presence of Reinhard Dayer (general manager Naturefriends Austria), Mag. Thomas Pupp (head of the Naturefriends Tirol), Julius Nagy (head of the Naturefriends Kufstein) and Silvia Huber (tenant of the Hans Berger House) and followed a guided tour along the Natura Trail.
