Description

Multi-day long-distance hiking trail - in 5 daily stages across the Kitzbühel Alps.
The KAT Walk Compact forms the second branch of the Kitzbüheler Alpen Trail alongside the physically challenging KAT Walk Alpine.

Beyond Hiking in the Kitzbühel Alps for body, mind and soul - this is what the KAT Walk Compact offers. Over 5 daily stages, totaling 76 km and almost 5,000 meters in vertical metres, you will discover the sunny side of the beautiful Tyrolean mountains.

On 4 of 5 stages, you can choose to take the mountain railway to shorten the route. Stop in cozy huts on the mountain every day and enjoy regional delicacies to strengthen yourself.
