Walking and hiking tours
Difficulty: Easy

Pinegg - Kaiserhaus

Family friendly hike along the Brandenberg Stream - suitable for buggies and pushchairs (forest tracks)

Length 6.36 km
Duration 1:45 h
51 hm
52 hm

Cross the River in Pinegg and take the path upriver immediately to the left. One has now left the steepest (short) part of the hike behind one and the remaining path leads through meadows and woods upriver. There are numerous ideal spots to stop and rest – and maybe take a refreshing splash.

After approx. 45 min one reaches an intersection. Follow the signs for the Kaiserhaus. Cross the river and walking past the turnoff into the Kaiser Gorge continue on to the Kaiserhaus (5 minutes).

The path is ideal for families with children. The little ones can move freely along most of the route. Walk back the same way or via the tarmacked road out of the valley (a circular route). Here, too, there are some nice places to stop by the stream.

Additional information


Author’s recommendation

As there is a bathing ban for dogs at the lakes, the Brandenberg Stream is always a top tip for dog owners on hot days. 

The Kaiserhaus has a playground and rope course.

Take care in wet weather, the path can be slippery!
