Hike to the Wiedersberger Horn mountain

An easy peak for (almost) anyone: This circular hike is the best way to climb Mt. Wiedersberger Horn, a beautiful panoramic mountain in the Kitzbühel Alps.

We start our hike at the intermediate station of the Wiedersberger Horn Cable Car, which starts in the Alpbachtal valley. From the meadows of the Kriegalm Mountain Hut we follow the path no. A40 uphill to the Kohlgruben Hut and then no. R30 through the heath, up to the ridge between Mt. Loderstein and Mt. Wiedersberger Horn. We continue our hike until we reach the junction with the panorama path. It leads us to the Hornalm, a mountain inn and great place to stop. We enjoy the local delicacies and the beautiful panoramic view on the Zillertal and Kitzbühel Alps.

The short but steep ascent to the peak (100 m of altitude difference) still is ahead of us. From the summit cross we see the Inntal valley, famous Lake Achensee, the Karwendel Mountains and the Brandenberg Alps in the north, as well as the Kaiser Mountains in the northeast. Simply breathtaking! Now we follow the downhill trail no. R40 to the Dauerstoa Mountain Hut and the Hornboden tavern. Finally, the nearby Wiedersberger Horn Cable Car takes us down into the Alpbachtal valley again.
