Directly on the German border in Tyrol at an altitude of 1,100 metres lies a picturesque high valley: the Tannheimer Tal. On three sides, the valley is framed by striking mountain ranges, all of which have their own character. In the northeast, the rugged peaks of the Rote Flüh and Gimpel rise up, in the south, you will find the Vilsalpsee mountains with their steep mountain slopes, and in the north, Einstein and Aggenstein with their rocky peak pyramids mark the edge of the valley.

In the middle of the mountains lies a wide valley floor with idyllic small towns and villages. From there, various cable cars lead up to the airy heights and countless hiking trails wind their way through the valley, over mountain meadows and up to the peaks. The excellent hiking trails and the careful signposting have even been awarded the Tyrolean Mountain Trail seal of approval. You always have the choice between the three hiking levels of the Tannheimer Valley: On the first level you stroll along flat paths through the picturesque valley and enjoy the view of the mountains. The gondola lift and chairlift take you up to the second level, where you hike from hut to hut along marked hiking trails with a magnificent view. If you prefer a more sporting experience, then the third level is just right for you: The routes take you on exciting climbs up to the highest peaks in the Tannheimer Tal.

We have chosen our 13 favourites from the numerous hiking trails. Whether it's a leisurely walk on the mountain pastures, a visit to one of the romantic mountain lakes, a panoramic high-level trail or an exciting ascent to the summit - you will always find your dream tour here.

Friendly mountain pastures, mountain inns and mountain huts await you along the magnificent hiking trails. Here you can take a break and enjoy the surrounding mountain world with fantastic views and regional cuisine.
