Mountain sports around the Landhotel Föhrenhof

Mountaineering and hut hiking
in the Wilder Kaiser Mountains

As one of the most popular and long-standing climbing mountains of Austria, the Wilder Kaiser Mountains offer enough exciting possibilities for beginners as well as professional climbers which will let your adrenaline flow. Experienced climbers and alpinists are seized by sporty ambition when they simply hear names such as “Totenkirchl”, “Fleischbank-Ostwand” or “Predigtstuhl”.

The Hotel Föhrenhof: THE accommodation for climbers
and mountaineers in the Wilder Kaiser region

Our Landhotel is the right starting point for your 3- or 5-day hut hike at the Wilder Kaiser. With around 2,500 metres of altitude and 33 kilometres in length, it is exactly the right option for ambitious mountaineers. Many further hearty mountain tours and via ferratas turn the Wilder Kaiser Mountains into a paradise for mountaineers.

Guided tours

The best way to go on a tour is under the supervision of a trained guide. In the Bergsport competence centre in Ellmau (a ski school in winter) you get many tips and recommendations and can book a mountain guide for a tour.
