The Kaisertal not only has a beautiful setting, but also has a favourable climate and is protected from winds, so that it is also popular in winter. From the car park to the Kaiseraufstieg, via the Kaiseraufstieg to the actual valley path. After climbing 285 steps, the path above the Zottenhof leads past the Veitenhof and over the Pfandl Chapel, the Pfandlhof and the BergKhof to a fork in the path. Here you keep left and reach the Antoinius Chapel. Within calling distance is the Hinterkaiserhof with a snack station. From here you have a beautiful view of the Gamsberg opposite or further into the Kaisertal valley to the Totenkirchl. The way back follows the same path and offers many opportunities to stop for refreshments in the traditional inns along the way. The path runs along the southern slope of the Zahmen Kaiser and is therefore in the warming winter sun.
Variant: If you want to go further up, you can follow the forest road from Hinterkaiserhof to the Ritzau Alm or Vorderkaiserfeldenhütte and return to the valley on the same route. Additional time there and back from Hinterkaiserhof 3 h 45 min.
