In summer a hike on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier is highly refreshing. The altitude of more than 3,000m means that the glacier is also snowy in the warm season. Starting from the Alpincenter 2450m to the geologically fascinating rock formations at the foot of the Tristinger mountain and the Rettenwand. Our walk leads from the viewpoint at the Graswandkreuz via the Gletscherblick Panorama walking path back to the Alpincenter. On our way we met thesesheeps and always a black one. Once you've returned to the green valley you can take a dip in the Zeller lake. The valley station at 911 m offers a wide range of mountain adventures and hiking possibilities. have a look into the map: en.kitzsteinhorn.at/panorama/sommer.htm

It is one of the highest mountain experiences of all Austria: Hiking on the Kitzsteinhorn. This mountain peak is part of the Hohe Tauern and with an altitude of 3.203 metres one of Austria´s few glaciers. Also in summer you will find ice and snow here: at the Ice Arena with a snow beach, slippery sides and a play piste bully. Just right next to it green grassland in a high alpine landscape, fascinating rock formations and spectacular views on the National Park Hohe Tauern. We were high up in the Alps at the mountain range of the Kitzsteinhorn at elevation of 2450 meter. We met these sheep at our walking path to Alpincenter. Counting sheep is popularly said to be an aid to sleep.

Wintersporters zijn verzot op het Kitzsteinhorn gletsjerskigebied, zijn grootte, verscheidenheid & sneeuwgarantie 365 dagen per jaar. Met de Gletscherbahnen Kaprun kunt u van het dalstation op 911m hoogte de top van de Kitzsteinhorn tot op een hoogte van over 3.000 m per kabelbaan bereiken. In de zomer kun je prachtige wandeltochten maken met het alpincenter 2450m als uitgangspunt. Wandelen op de Kitzsteinhorn, Schmittenhöhe, Tristinger of Maiskogel is een ware belevenis. We komen deze schapen tegen op één van de bergpaadjes. Een schaap kan een leeftijd van 15 tot 20 jaar halen, maar dit komt in de praktijk zelden voor: meestal worden ze veel eerder geslacht. Tijdens de wandeltochten kun je op verschillende plaatsen een berghut of restaurant aandoen om even bij te tanken. Een overzichtskaart kun je hier vinden: en.kitzsteinhorn.at/panorama/sommer.htm
