Hike to the hermitage near Kitzbühel

A walk through the forest near Kitzbühel: This tip is not a sporting challenge and is therefore an idea for almost everyone to spend a relaxing day between the town and nature.

In Kitzbühel we follow the Josefl-Herold road to the station "Hahnenkamm", where the valley station of the Hahnenkamm Cable Car is also located. A few minutes later we reach the "Bergwerksweg" junction and shortly afterwards the one with the "Einsiedeleiweg". We take this path. It is a road that is asphalted at the beginning and then follows a good gravel path through the meadows below Mt. Hahnenkamm. After crossing the Erzbach stream we reach the mixed forest, which will accompany us to our destination.

It is possible to shorten the route by taking steeper forest paths - but the gravel road is more comfortable. On a small hill at 1,000 m a.s.l. our destination is located, the Einsiedelei inn. On the sun terrace or inside we want to spend a few cosy hours before we return to our starting point.
