Hiking holidays in Tyrol — you will find alpine idyll and summit adventures at every step.
We have picked twelve hikes for you to explore the majestic mountains of Tyrol. You will visit the mountain peaks around Innsbruck and venture into the remote valleys near Seefeld, marvel at the Breathtaking views at the Hohe Tauern and discover the Dolomites in East Tyrol. In the region around Lake Achensee, you will find the largest lake in Tyrol and solitary mountain peaks. To the east, the adventurous peaks of the Kaisergebirge and Kitzbühel Alps await. No matter which way you turn – your hiking wishes will come true in Tyrol.

Innsbruck is not only the capital and cultural center of Tyrol but also a perfect starting point for fantastic hiking routes. The Patscherkofel, the Karwendel, the Mieminger Kette and the Sellraintal can all be reached by bus and train and offer first-class hiking. Our routes take you along the Zirbenweg and up to the Wankspitze. You can find more inspiration here: to.austria.info/wandernregioninnsbruck.

The town of Seefeld is surrounded by the Karwendel, Mieminger Kette and Wetterstein mountains and makes an excellent basecamp for your mountain hikes. All around the city, you will find untouched alpine valleys, steep mountain peaks, and impressive gorges. We have chosen the pleasant Ganghofer Weg in the Gaistal and the wildly romantic Gleirschklamm canyon for you. You can find even more routes at to.austria.info/wandernseefeld.

To the east of Innsbruck, you can explore Achensee, the largest lake in Tyrol. The area around the lake is a fantastic hiking destination. Here, you can hike along the water’s edge, explore the surrounding valleys, and enjoy stunning views over Lake Achensee from the mountains. Our two hiking routes will guide you along the lakeshore and to mount Juifen’s summit. You can find more hikes at to.austria.info/wandernachensee.

At the foot of the famous Kaisergebirge in Tyrol lies the town of St. Johann. Here, you can set up camp for your mountain hikes in the “Wilder Kaiser”. To give you a taste of the untouched mountain landscape, you will first hike up the Stripsenjoch and through the rocky Teufelsgasse gorge. You can discover even more exciting mountain hikes at to.austria.info/wandernstjohanntirol.

Kitzbühel is known above all as a winter sports resort — but the surrounding mountains are also a great destination for your hiking holidays in summer. Several mountain railways make the summits easily accessible for families and leisurely hikers, while sporty mountaineers can hike directly from the valley to the summit. On our hikes, you will treck to Schwarzsee and around the Kitzbüheler Horn. You can find more hikes at to.austria.info/wandernkitzbuehel.

With the glaciated peaks of the Hohe Tauern in the north and the breathtaking Carnic Ridge in the south — East Tyrol is an Eldorado for summit climbers. Countless mountain huts and various mountain ranges invite you to day-long exploration hikes. We have chosen two fantastic day routes to get you started: the summit tour to Speikboden and the ascent to the newly renovated Sillianer Hütte. You can find even more mountain adventures at to.austria.info/wandernosttirol.

And where will you stay during your hiking holidays? The Austrians have prepared just the right thing for you: hiking hotels (“Wanderhotels”). These hotels are specialized in catering to nature lovers and are located in the most beautiful hiking regions. Here, you can get practical tips for your hikes and start walking from your doorstep. You can find the hiking hotels at to.austria.info/wanderhotels.

Austria by train: travelling comfortably — arriving rested. There is a train every two hours between 06.40 and 18.40 from Zurich to Austria. Early bookers benefit from particularly inexpensive economy tickets which are available online. You can find information and timetables, as well as book your ticket, here: sbb.ch/oesterreich.
