From Westendorf to the summit 

By bus or car, head first to Westendorf, approx. 10 minutes from your holiday resort (alternatively, you can also get on directly in Kirchberg and extend the journey). There, the Alpenrosenbahn will take us the first part of the hike before we set off from the Talkaser Mountain Restaurant. Along the route, we walk until the Höhningscharte, where a wide hiking path branches off to the Einködlscharte. If you're out and about here between May and June, you can experience the Alpine roses in bloom, which spread out in pink-red carpets left and right of the path. After a steep climb, you will reach the summit cross of the Gampenkogel after approx. 45 minutes. Here, you can get your snack out of your rucksack and enjoy it together with the unbelievable panorama of the Kitzbühel Alps. The journey back takes us through the climb at Südgrat, where you can pick wild blueberries and cranberries at the edge of the path.,

Natural jewel Kreuzjöchlsee

Once you've arrived on the road, hike up to the next highlight. The Kreuzjöchlsee lies before you, crystal-clear and peaceful. Right next to it, the Alpine guest house Brechhornhaus with large sun terrace invites you take a rest. Try a sweet Kaiserschmarrn or homemade cake from the host. After a cosy break, there is just a detour to the St. Anna Chapel before the hiking path takes us back to the Einködlscharte via the Harlaßanger Bründel and the round tour ends. We go downhill back to the starting point of the tour in Brixen. Here, the bus picks us up and brings us directly back to the Sports Hotel Elisabeth.

Time for relaxation

After a wonderful mountain hike, you can relax in the spa area of your wellness hotel or enjoy the afternoon sun after swimming in the pond. Lean back while you relax in the lounger and reflect on the loveliest way points of your hike.
