If your motivation to lace up your hiking boots includes scenic trails up to remote alpine pastures and huts, then you’ll appreciate this Collection of Tours through Tyrol. What the chefs here manage to create in these remote places is nothing short of extraordinary. Take the time to enjoy your rest at a hut with all your senses, gaze over the vastness of the mountains, listen to the unique silence of the Tyrolean Alps, smell the fresh scent of an alpine meadow, feel the weather-beaten wood of an alpine hut and taste the full, unadulterated flavours of Tyrolean cuisine.

Tyrol has countless huts, alpine pastures and mountain restaurants, but there are a few that always stand out. We went on a search and selected 13 hikes to huts for you where the hosts have paid special attention to detail. Our hikes are not just simple farm tracks to the next alpine pasture – the journey is also the destination here and the nature is just as spectacular as the culinary delights at the end. Natural paths, hidden forest trails and magnificent views accompany you on every step to the hut.

So what do the innkeepers conjure up on their menus? Delicious homemade alpine cheese, classic Kaspressknödel (Tyrolean cheese dumplings) and homemade pastries – all made with the finest ingredients directly from the region.

If you prefer to take it easier than long-distance hikes, but you still don’t want to miss out on the huts, don't worry. Some of the Tours can be shortened comfortably with a cable car or hiking bus. You can find all the information in the individual Tours. Even without a shortcut, most of the hikes are moderately difficult and head off alpine paths to reach the destination. Whichever hike you choose, rest assured – you can expect a unique experience and delicious food here!

    The Karlsbader Hut is enthroned high up in the rocky landscape of the Lienz Dolomites. And what sounds like mountaineering is also manageable for ambitious low mountain hikers. From the Dolomitenhütte car park, a wide, easy-to-run alpine and forest path leads to the hut. And if you work up a sweat, you can simply cool off in the Laserzsee directly at the hut.
