What was that again? Wilder Kaiser? Zahmer Kaiser? Or is it Kaisergebirge?
No wonder that with this flood of imperial terms some confusion arises.
We shed some light on the most beautiful nature reserve in Tyrol.
Actually, it's quite simple: the mountain range "Wilder Kaiser", which also gives its name to the region around the four imperial resorts (Ellmau, Going, Scheffau and Söll), together with the "Zahmen Kaiser" in the north and the "Niederkaiser" in the east form the "Kaisergebirge".
This beautiful nature reserve Kaisergebirge, which includes all the peaks of the "Wilder Kaiser" and the "Zahmen Kaiser", covers an area of 102 square kilometers. Completely natural, it shines in full splendor and is considered an absolute highlight worth seeing in Tyrol. Breathtaking views, crystal clear mountain lakes and air in its purest and freshest form enchant every nature lover in no time.
There is only one artificial lift - the Kaiserlift Kufstein, which leads to the Brentenjoch in the beautiful Kaisertal. That's all it takes. Because with the fully developed SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental, which is located "opposite" the Wilder Kaiser, so to speak, on the gentle grassy hills of the Kitzbühel Alps, ski fans will also find a perfect piste infrastructure for their winter holiday here. While always having the untouched nature of the Wilder Kaiser on the other side in view.
The Kaiser Mountains are extremely popular with hikers, climbers, nature lovers and summer visitors. After all, it is one of the few areas where nature still sets the tone 100% and man is only a guest. Possibly things would be different today if the Kaisergebirge had not been a designated nature reserve since the 1960s.
