    The Elfer, Neustift's local mountain, is one of the Stubai Seven Summits because of its height and boldness. If you don't want to hike over the steep rock towers of the mountain, you can go around the magnificent mountain range on a hike with great views. The route is just as varied as the rock - rugged, light rock towers made of limestone on one side and the primary rock of the Stubai Mountains, called Ötztal-Stubai-Kristallin, on the other.

    The "Hoger", as he is called by the locals. The path leads steeply up to the 3,277 meter high summit with the beautiful summit cross. Technically not the most difficult of the Stubai Seven Summits, it does require a little bit of physical fitness, because you're gaining altitude fast. Although the hawk is not the highest peak in the Stubai Alps, its appearance is so powerful that it is often considered the highest mountain in Tyrol.
