Up to the Gampekogel

Hiking holiday in Kirchberg

 

In Kirchberg a hiking holiday is exactly how it should be. Diverse hiking trails for all difficulty levels run over the green Kitzbühel mountain all the way up to the rugged summits. Take a hike on the Gampenkogel, which is a comfortable half a day hike. 

 

From Brixen to the summit

Take the bus or the car to Brixen, ca. 10 minutes away from your holiday hotel. The Alpenrosen cable car will take over the first part of your hike, before you actually start your hike at the Talkaser mountain station. Along the road the hike continues to the Höhnngscharte, from where a wide hiking trail to the Einködlscharte branches off. If you are here between May and June you will be able to witness the alpenrose blossom right and left of the trail, making the meadows look like a red and pink carpet. After a steep ascent you will reach the summit cross on Gampenhogel after ca. 45 minutes. Here you can take a snack out of your rucksack and enjoy it with the phenomenal views over the Kitzbühel Alps. Return over the south ridge where you can pick wild blueberries and cranberries along the way.

Lake Kreuzjöchlsee – nature's gem

Once you are back on the road continue your ascent to the next highlight. Crystal-clear and peacefully located – the Lake Kreuzjöchlsee. And right next to it you will find the Alpengasthof Brechhornhaus pub with a big sun terrace. Try a sweet Kaiserschmarrn or homemade cakes. After a lovely break visit the Anna chapel and then your hike will lead you over the Harlaßanger Bründl back to the Einködlscharte, where the circular walk ends. Descent to the tour's starting point in Brixen. A bus will pick you up and take you directly back to the Elisabeth Sports Hotel.

Time for recreation

After a mountain hike relax in the spa area at your wellness hotel or enjoy the afternoon sun after a bath in the swimming pond. Leave your everyday behind while you relax on a lounger and reminisce about the most beautiful milestones during your hike.
