Hiking in the Hohen Tauern
and the Kitzbühel Alps

in the hiking village of Hollersbach

On idyllic, well-marked hiking trails, you have numerous opportunities to hike the impressive Tauern valleys, the fascinating peaks, or the gentle grassy mountains of the Kitzbühel Alps – the choice is yours. Exciting family-friendly themed trails (e.g. the Bachlehrweg in the Hollersbachtal), hikes with fantastic views from the mountain station of the panoramic cable car, and guided summit tours to the snow-covered 3000-metre peaks of the Hohe Tauern are worthwhile destinations.


We are a certified hiking establishment that has been awarded the Austrian Hiking Seal of Quality. This means that with us at the Kaltenhauser recreation hotel, you are on holiday with true hiking professionals. We enjoy hiking ourselves and invite you to join us. Every week, we offer 3–6 guided hikes with a certified hiking guide. Once a week, the boss will even show you the most beautiful places in the region (when booking a hiking package).

Hiking rucksacks, hiking poles, drinking bottles, and thermos flasks can be hired from the hotel. The hiking information desk has all the information you need about the tours: hiking maps, nature guides, plant books, cultural guides, and road maps. We work together with the National Park rangers and are happy to help you organise and plan your hiking destinations. In the hotel, there is an information point about the Hohe Tauern National Park especially for our hiking guests.

After an enjoyable hike, you can wind down in the relaxation area with Finnish sauna, infrared cabin, sanarium, and indoor pool or enjoy a massage or beauty treatment.
