Kauschka's tourism achievements were both in sports and in alpine mountaineering.
An example of this was one day, he started with friends at 2 am from Liberec to walk across Jizera mountains to Sněžka-Śnieżka in the Karkonosze mountains (located at the Czech-Polish border). 17 hours later at 7 pm, they were back in Harrachov after resting on the top of Sněžka-Śnieżka for two hours.
In 1922, Kauschka and his friends climbed the Ještěd mountain summit twelve times starting at 7 pm one day and finishing at 5:45 pm the next day. During that day they reached an altitude over 5000 m high, using over 20 different footpaths.
