Hiking tip 1: Hohe Salve – Sonnenweg trail & summit hike
The Hohe Salve is not only Tyrol’s top mountain for incredible views, it also has numerous hiking trails to suit all abilities. The Sonnenweg trail starts and ends at the top of the Hohe Salve at 1,829m above sea level – ascend and descend on the Salvenbahn I and II. This is a leisurely circular route that is suitable for the whole family and offers a fantastic 360° view of over 70 peaks reaching above 3,000m, as well as providing a superb overview of the impressive scale of the Kitzbühel Alps. The panoramic summit hike starts and ends at the Hopfgarten midway station on the Salvenbahn I route. Take path no. 70 to the summit via the reservoir and the Salvensee lake and then descend in comfort by cable car (Salvenbahn I and II).
Hiking tip 2: Hike to the Labalm mountain refuge in Aschau
You can choose to either set off from the hotel on foot, which adds 7km to the walk, or let us take you to the Oberlandhütte car park in Aschau by VIP shuttle. From the chapel, head south to Ebenaualm and keep going to the suspension bridge and waterfall. Continue on from the Hintenbach barbecue area and Kasplatzl – from there the walk leads past the Hintenbachalm. Follow the road on the left for about two hours until you reach the junction for Labalm. Return by the same way you came. This route is accessible to prams and highly recommended for e-bikers too!
Hiking tip 3: Gaisberg hike
From the Gaisberg lift lower terminus, either take the lift or walk a little further southwards along the cycle path until the trail branches off to the right and up to the Gaisbergalm. From there, keep walking in a southerly direction towards Bärstattalm. If you fancy more of a challenge, hike over the Gaisberg: take the turn-off on the right above the Bärstättalm which leads steeply uphill. The less challenging route leads south to the Kobingerhütte hut or just before the Wiegalm where the two paths rejoin. Follow the forest road to the Brechhornhaus and Kreuzjöchlsee lake. Just before the lake, a steep footpath branches off to the right. This leads along the east ridge to the new summit cross. Descend by the same way or along the west ridge. If you take the Alpenrosenbahn down to the valley, our VIP shuttle can bring you back to Kirchberg.
