Route: Reith railway station - Kaiserstand - Reith railway station

This spectacular panoramic loop leads six kilometres through the snow-covered winter forests above Reith and rewards you with picturesque views and a cosy resting bench at Kaiserstand at 1,400 metres.
From the starting point at Reith station, follow the railway line along the subway and then along the edge of the forest for a while until the signposted panoramic hiking trail branches off to the right. The gravel path now leads through the Hölltal valley with its beautiful views to the turnoff to the Kaiserstand (1,400m). The recommended detour to the vantage point rewards you with a well-deserved rest at one of the most beautiful power spots in the region.

The Kaiserstand trail leads leisurely downhill from the vantage point and back to Reith. In the village, you then reach the old Roman road and turn right across the Reither village square (and the cosy little café of the Reither bakery) to find your way back to the starting point at the station a little later.
