Backwards Hike on Kitzbuehl's Steepest Ski Course
While you may have heard of Hahnenkamm as a world-famous ski course, it might be completely new to you as a hiking trail. You begin your trip by taking the cable car up the mountain, which makes for a deceivingly relaxing start. Once you arrive at the top, you can enjoy the stunning views of the surrounding region – really savor the panorama before you begin your descent and don’t forget to stop by the little museum where you can learn all about the risky course and its history. Now prepare for a tricky way down: The Hahnenkamm is very steep and can be difficult to navigate. Feel the small adrenaline rush of hiking down this legendary path and try to imagine what it must feel like to speed towards the valley on narrow skis.
