Family Hiking Tours

Spending a nice time in the mountains with the family – that's possible in Kühtai. Our beautiful hiking trails are varied and also a great fun for the children. While you are exploring the beautiful nature, there are highlights on the way or at the destination that especially inspire the little ones. Flowing, clear water to play with, horses/cows and beautiful forests where the imagination of a child knows no bounds.

Here are some examples of our family hiking tours in Kühtai

Three Lakes Circuit

The DreiSeenBahn cable car quickly takes you up to 2,410 m. From there, past
the Upper Plenderlessee, you can reach the DreiSeen-Hütte at 2,311 m on
foot in just 8 minutes, with a sun terrace located right by the *Lower
Plenderlessee*. You then go back down via the middle of the Plenderlessee, on to the Hirschebensee (2,164 m), and back past the Kühtai high-altitude performance centre to the valey station.
