The Kitzbühel Alps is an extensive range in the central Alps. On the south side is the famous Zillertal and Hohe Tauern, with Austria's highest mountains. The Kitzbühel Alps are not that rough and glaciated, however. The highest peak here is Kreuzjoch, 2.558 m. The mountains are greener and more rounded as a result of the erosion-prone type of stone that is common here: slate.
It is a popular ski resort in winter. Summer hikers can take advantage of the many ski lifts. The paths generally offer no problems. Therefore, this mountain range is suitable for those walkers who prefer to avoid using their hands.
