"All are aware that in the high mountains, where the air is clean and thin, one breathes freer, feels physically lighter and spiritually more cheerful." (Jean-Jacques Rousseau)
Immerse yourself in Kaprun's world of mountains and glaciers. The valley station of the Maiskogel is the ideal starting point for hikes of all difficulty levels. From the leisurely Moosrunde, which can even be enjoyed while pushing along a pram, to a full-scale ascent of the Maiskogel or the Kitzsteinhorn, Kaprun offers hiking fans all kinds of choices for their tours.
The lush alpine meadows, rich fauna and flora, as well as the clear, fresh mountain air are priceless to every nature lover. Once at the top of the mountain, the first order of "business" is to enjoy the glorious views, of course. But then, as the icing on the cake, so to speak, stopping in at one of the area's friendly mountain huts or country inns for a hearty snack is also an absolute must.
Hiking on the Maiskogel is fun for kids! After all, along the trail's edge there are so many colorful flowers, fascinating rocks, and even wild animals from time to time, all just waiting to be discovered. All of the hiking paths have been designed to insure that children can also enjoy them safely.
The hike to the Unterbergalm was created especially for visitors with prams. Beginning at the Maiskogel Alm Ranch, the path brings parents & pram to the hut in around half an hour.
One special highlight for the youngsters is the petting zoo, which they will find right next to the sun-terrace at the Maiskogel Alm Ranch. Sheep, hens, a donkey and goats are all waiting to welcome the children into their cozy home. The animals love to be petted and stroked, and a small treat or two never hurts either!
Further information about nearby hiking destinations can be obtained from our Maiskogel team as well as the local tourist office.
