Beautiful mountain tour on the Kreuzjoch with a wonderful pnoramic view of the impressive mountain range.


You can get to the starting point of the somewhat challenging mountain tour by taking the Rosenalmbahn (cable car). On hiking trail no. 10, first head left on an agricultural road for a short while, travelling out of the valley until you reach the first cattle grid. Turn right at the crossroads and follow the slightly ascending hiking trail no. 10 until you reach Grindlalm. Head left at the fork in the road onto the agricultural road until you reach the Legalalm. You can enjoy the magnificent view of the surrounding Zillertal Alps while eating a reinvigorating snack or treading water in the mountain stream. Then continue to follow the agricultural road towards the valley until you reach Kreuzjoch Alm. Just before the mountain station of the Hanser X-PRESS, you will find the hiking trail on the left, which leads over the ridge. After crossing the ski slope you will

come to another hiking trail, which leads along the ridge of Übergangsjochs until you reach the summit of Kreuzjoch. From Übergangsjoch, you will need to proceed across very rocky terrain. Sure-footedness and a good head for heights are essential with the slight balancing act of the last 20 minutes until you reach Kreuzjoch. You will reach the highest summit of the Kitzbühl Alps and be rewarded with a magnificent view of the Zillertal and Pinzgau mountain landscape. Hike back along the same path until you reach the mountain station of the Rosenalmbahn cable car. It is also possible to take the black route and hiking trail no. 1 to the mountain station of the Isskogel cable car and get off in Gerlos.
