Holidays Scheffau am Wilden Kaiser

Holidays in Scheffau

Scheffau is located at the foot of the majestic Wilder Kaiser mountains at 752 meters above sea level. It is the smallest village in this area with only 1200 inhabitants. The size and the idyllic location make Scheffau particularly attractive to walking and hiking fans. Guests come every year again in order to enjoy their holidays in the mountains. In winter, skiers and snowboarders spend most of the time high up in the Wilder Kaiser mountains and enjoy the great variety of slopes. Whereas summer holidaymakers can also plunge into the crystal clear Lake Hintersteinersee, which is located just above Scheffau, slightly hidden in the woods.

Hiking, Biking & Swimming in Scheffau

In Scheffau, sure-footed hikers should not miss out on a tour to the 2111m-high Scheffauer – its peak can be reached within 3 to 4 hours. Enjoy the fresh mountain air and cross the via ferrata which offers a great change just below the peak. Once on top, you will be rewarded by the stunning views of the Inntal valley and you can recharge your batteries with a well-deserved Tirolean snack.
Hiking, cycling and mountain biking – all these sports – are a great adventure in Scheffau. No matter if you choose a personally guided tour or prefer to discover the mountains on your own with the tour planner – there is something for all ability levels. As Scheffau is also part of the E-bike regionKitzbühler Alpen-Kaisergebirge”, the area is also perfectly suited for E-bikers who want to discover the beautiful surroundings with a little extra boost. Lake Hintersteinersee invites you to relax with the entire family. It is one of the cleanest mountain lakes in Tirol and perfect for bathing fun.
