Hiking pass

Collect destinations and earn a badge

With the Kaiserwinkl hiking pass the lovely tradition of collecting hiking pin badges lives on. It provides an incentive to keep venturing to new destinations. That's how it works: Collect a hiking pass in the tourist information office in Kössen or Walchsee or install the Smartphone-App SummitLynx free of charge, head for the destinations of your choice and get your pass stamped when you get to these destinations. Then show your pass or the smartphone in the tourist information office and collect your reward - the pin badge (€ 3 per adult, no charge for children when they have a Kaiserwinkl Card).

NEW: Collect badges on your Smartphone


Anyone who has a Smartphone no longer needs a paper hiking pass. All you need to do is install the "SummitLynx" App free of charge on your GPS-capable mobile phone and register.

When you reach your chosen destination, open the App and register the fact that you have been at this location – even if you cannot get Internet reception. Take a photo and enter it in the App's virtual 'summit book'. SummitLynx calculates how many destinations you have been to and automatically 'awards' bronze, silver or gold medals.

Of course – as with a stamped pass – your "real" hiking badges are issued in the tourist information offices in Kaiserwinkl.
