Are you looking for a proper mountain adventure? Then the Berliner Höhenweg should definitely be on your bucket list. This adventurous route is one of the main hiking challenges in the Zillertal Alps. You'll tackle two epic mountain passes with the option to climb the 3134 meter high Schönbichler Horn. The terrain can be technical, with some challenging sections like steep trails, snow fields, and rocky terrain. The comfortable huts along the way make sure you can replenish your burned calories with tasty local dishes. Hotel accommodation in Mayrhofen before and after is included.



Arrival in Mayrhofen

Today you will arrive in the bustling mountain town of Mayrhofen, beautifully situated on the river Ziller. We arranged a cosy hotel for you from where you can explore this lively place.

Mayrhofen - Karl von Edelhütte

Duration: 04:55 h
Distance: 9.5 km
Ascent: 1600 m
The starting point is in Mayrhofen, where you can park your car. Walk towards the Ahornbahn and follow the Ziller river until the paved road turns into an unpaved one. From here, a well-defined path steeply ascends, with the Ahornbahn on your right and the Ziller on your left. After a challenging climb, you will reach the Wirtschaftshaus Alpenrose, where you can take a break on the terrace with a drink. After this welcome stop, it's time to climb again. The path zigzags uphill until it meets the path coming from the Ahornbahn. From here, you will walk for another half hour to reach the Karl von Edelhütte. Alternatively, you can take the Ahornbahn, which cuts 6 kilometers and 1300 meters of altitude gain from the route.

Karl von Edelhütte


Karl von Edelhütte - Kasseler Hütte

Duration: 05:35 h
Distance: 13.1 km
Ascent: 500 m
Descent: 580 m
Today is a challenging day. High above the Stilluptal, you traverse below the peaks of the Ahornkam towards the Kasseler Hütte. Although you don't cross a real mountain pass, there is a lot of climbing and descending involved. The Krummschnabelscharte is literally the highlight of this stage, where you should not have a fear of heights. The narrow path runs along spectacular rock formations and is secured with a cable. After reaching the 2478-meter-high pass, you will continue towards the Nofertenschneid, another magnificent passage with pointed rocks. Here too, you can use cables to descend. From here, it is an 8-kilometer walk over uneven terrain to the Kasseler Hütte. Don't forget to enjoy the view from time to time!
