Brünnsteinhaus – Vorderkaiserfeldenhütte
Today I left Mangfallgebirge and headed into Kaisergebirge. The first third of the way was a moderate descend on gravel roads through a forest. After 2.5 hours I arrived in Kiefersfelden—the first town I passed through in five days. Since it’s been a Sunday, unfortunately I could not shop for groceries.
Whereas the way through Kiefersfelden was really nice along Kieferbach, the way through Kufstein—the Austrian part of the twin towns—was rather tedious, I had to walk 5 km up Inn River to get to a bridge just to walk 3 km back the same way—only on the other side of the river. At the end of Kufstein there is a parking space where everyone starts their tour up Kaisertal.
The first part of the trail were steps—really exhausting after already five hours of walking. And then it turned into a hiking-highway—steep and broad gravel road with a lot of hiking traffic all the way up to Vorderkaiserfeldenhütte. Not my preferred type of trail.
There were only four people staying at the hut, and it was a quiet evening. After some time the staff started sitting with us, we had a couple of beers and a really nice time.
