Overview

The Naunspitze is a summit in the Kaisergebirge, which is placed in the northern part of tirol, close to the boarders to germany. The Kaisergebirge is diveded in two parts. Zahmer Kaiser and Wilder Kaiser are separated by a small valley, the Kaisertal.

The Naunspitze is one of the most frequented summits of the Zahmer Kaiser. The rather easy way to the peak and the very impressive view from the summit is one of the main reasons for the popularity. The view from the summit reaches very far northwards to germany and all along the Inntal (main valley in tirol) up to Innsbruck. At clear weather you have great view to the summits of the tuxer and stubai alps in the northwest.

Comming from Innsbruck, drive along the highway A12 to Kufstein (about 80km).

The way to the Summit

At the parking place, follow the way to the Kaisertal (valley between Zahmer Kaiser ans Wilder Kaiser). Walk up the stairs, then follow the signs leading the way to Rietzau Alm (about 90 min) and Vorderkaiserfelden (120 min). At Vorderkaiserfelden, walk left the hut. The street changes to a small path which leads you up the mountain. After approx. 30 min the path parts. Following the left arm, you will reach the Naunspitze very fast.

Following the right arm, you will reach Petersköpfl after further 30 min.

Take care:
The trips look rather easy. There are no technical difficulties, but in summer it can get very hot and there is no opportunity to find any water!

Camping

Usually camping is not necessary. There are a few huts around offering accomodation and best food.
