hiking on the kitzsteinhorn glacier


Alpine tour to the glacier from Maiskogel

This tour isn't for the faint of heart – or those with a fear of heights. Here you'll move along at dizzying heights, but that's what makes this hike so beautiful. The panoramic view that awaits is something you aren't soon to forget. Head from the family-friendly Maiskogel mountain up to the Krefelder Hütte alpine hut. Refreshments here are plenty. This tour is particularly suitable for experienced hikers and alpine tourers.
