Hiking routes to the Maiskogel
The Alexander-Enzinger Weg is one of the most beautiful alpine tours in Kaprun, which can be done without special equipment. The hiking tour starts with the ascent to the Häuslhofalm on the Kitzsteinhorn. The Alexander-Enzinger Weg connects the glacier with the Maiskogel. You can hike along the new MK Maiskogel cable car and pass many huts. The first and best place to stop is the Glocknerhütte. The number of metres in altitude to be covered is manageable. (101 HM uphill and 955 HM downhill). For this very reason, the tour is also very popular with less experienced hikers. What to bring: Hiking boots, poles, weatherproof clothing etc. Tip: If you still have strength left, you can descend after the Glockner Hut via the Jetzbachastensteig towards the Klammsee.
