The best Hiking trails in Kaprun

Insider tips for the best hiking trails around Zell am See

The Kitzsteinhorn is not the only mountain in Kaprun waiting to be climbed. There are plenty of other mountains waiting to wow hikers with their beauty. The Maiskogel and Schmittenhöhe are ready for ambitious hikers, and many chalets and huts invite you to take a break, fill up on homemade treats and enjoy a refreshing beer. Plus, the views from the mountains will reward your hard work. 

Free time? Time to lace up the hiking boots!

The Kaprunerhof owners Anna and Stefan Unterkofler can almost always be found at the hotel, but sometimes they treat themselves to a break from everyday life. And when they do, they enjoy the great outdoors on hikes, for example. That's not so surprising, though, as Anna and Stefan live in the best location for all kinds of hiking. Here you will find the couple's favourite trails and their personal insider tips.
