Distance 20km Climb 1230m
Sunday 19th August 2012
I have set up Facebook and Twitter accounts if you would like updates on my walks.
At breakfast at the Hotel Edelweiss Veronika and Klaus had shown on their menu cards that a Sunday Mass was being held on the Kitzbuheler Horn. As Anne was wanting an easy day this is what we decided to do, I would walk up and down and Anne would use one of the tickets. It would also give Anne a chance to look around the local Sunday flea market.

After meeting Anne near Gipfelhaus we walked back down and joined the Mass near Harnkopfl. There were a number of Alpine Horn players and about four brass bands who had been playing in the town the previous evening. They played either as individual groups or all together. It was very impressive and lots of people had turned up in their traditional costume which for some would have been their Sunday best.
After the Mass we had our packed lunches and sat for sometime just enjoying the sights and sounds, before we decided to return to Kitzbuhel. As arranged I would walk back and Anne would return on the cable car. On our way to the Alpenhaus cable car station we talked and agreed that we would meet at a cafe in the town.

Although the path was very steep and tiring coming up it was just as tiring going down and took just as much effort going down as it did going up.
After returning to Kitzbuhel and having a relaxing drink at the cafe we returned to the Hotel Edelweiss for tea and cake, via the flea market to pick up a bargin?
