Beautiful & Fun - Family Destinations
The Panoramaweg in Reith i. Alpbachtal is the optimal pram friendly walking tour. As the name dictates this 8 km path wraps around the summit and affords breathtaking views. Take the lift to the top from the Reitherkogelbahn gondola.
For older children there is a specialised tour „In the search of wood in Alpbach“ and guides the children to points of interest such as the Bergbauern Museum „Vorder-Unterberg“ and a traditional saw mill, both of which welcome visitors. Parents will probably recognise the „Stettauer Hof“ from the much loved ARD series „Wildbach“. At the top of the Reitherkogel the pram friendly path also offers a host of play-stations and a wonderful viewing platform.
Medium level hikes to Summer Alms and Mountain Peaks
With the local gondolas you sail effortlessly to local mountain peaks – or if you prefer, you can walk to the top from the valley. The Gratlspitz mountain affords visitors a spectacular glimpse in to the local flora and fauna much of which is protected, including the wild orchids 'Türkenbundlilien' and 'Frauenschuh'. A truly beautiful destination is the Zireiner See locally known as the 'The Blue Eye of the Rofan'. When you make this mountain hike you will be delighted by the backdrop of the Rofan mountain – don't forget your camera as you will be hard-pushed to find anything like this lake and mountain setting again.
Spectacular Walks for Accomplished Hikers
Transgressing the Sagtalerspitze to the Gamskopf is a challenge and not for the timid. You need to be sure-footed and not afraid of heights to accomplish this mountain hike; however, if you are up to it the visual rewards are breathtaking. Revel in the views from the Rofan mountain across to the Achensee, the Karwendel, the Stubaier-and Zillertaler mountains: panorama takes on a whole new meaning! You need to be top fit to take on the Plessenberg (Pleassinger), the local mountain to Brandenberg, as you need to meet the acscent of 1200 meters. You will enjoy richly wooded land on your way to the Jocheralm when you can enjoy a comfortable rest at the idyllic and commended Jocherkapelle (chapel). Six hours of magnificentTyrolean terrain.
Whichever venture you choose, be it a comfortable walk or a challenging hike, you will be happy to return to the comfort of the Hotel Wiedersbergerhorn. Holiday with us and enjoy the amazing location of our hotel, the choice of activities on offer in the region and the traditional, relaxing charm of our house.
Wildly Romantic Ravines
To visit one of the local gorges will leave you spellbound and fascinated by the millions of years of geological impression. The wildness of the flowing waters will remind you of the power of Mother Nature. In the Alpbachtal Seenland region there are three of these wonders to visit. The Kaiserklamm, the Tiefenbachklamm and the Kundler Klamm. The Kundler Klamm is known as family friendly with its wide path that travels along side the waters that traverse wonderful rock formations; a path that can accommodate prams. Along the route the river runs into children friendly rock pools where summer bathing can be enjoyed.
The Kaiserklamm is a favourite haunt for kayaking and wild water sports – a breathtaking natural wonder. The path through the narrow gorge is small and rocky, but made safe to enjoy. On your way you will walk across small bridges and through a rock tunnel which only add to the fascination of the hike. The Tiefenbachklamm is similarly spectacular but also boasts an awe-inspiring viewing platform. When you look down you will be astounded at just how little space the tossing waters have to flow in this narrow ravine.
Important: You need to wear correct walking boots, be sure of foot and not afraid of heights to enjoy visiting these gorges. There is opportunity to hire safety belts with a security rope for your children.
