Float up into the natural paradise

Over alm meadows. Between the treetops. Surrounded by the Tyrolean mountain landscape. Idyllic peace. The Kaiserlift Kufstein takes you from the nature-bound fortress city up into the Kaiser Mountains nature reserve. Thirty minutes to switch off, relax and enjoy yourself. Observe the changes in the natural Tyrolean landscape meter by meter. The history of the Kaiserlift goes back to 1970. In 2014/ 2015 the summer cable car was completely renovated and revitalised. Since May 2015 it has once again been carrying people comfortably upward. The Brentenjoch top station is located at around 1,200 m, 700 m higher than Kufstein and surrounded by the Alpine Kaiser Mountains. Around the Brentenjoch top station is the untouched landscape of the nature reserve. A unique hiking and excursion paradise in Tyrol, for everyone from families to ambitious mountaineers. Over 1,000 kilometres of varied hiking paths. Awareness places. Viewpoints. Culinary delicacies served in traditional huts. Special events on the mountain provide new ways to enjoy nature. Guided discovery tours invite you to dive into the geological past. Explore the secrets of the Kaiser Mountains.
