Nothing is better than spending a day in the mountains: wonderful air, panoramic views, and fantastic hiking trails, not forgetting a hard-earned rest in a mountain hut. In Tyrol, the varied Tyrolean cuisine offers hits just the right spot for hungry hikers in the mountains. Taste of Place Tours combine the very best of hiking in the Tyrolean mountains: stunning landscapes and delicious food. These hikes take you to the prettiest alpine pastures, mountain huts and mountain inns in the Tyrolean mountains, where you will be spoiled with world-class regional dishes in an idyllic Alpine setting.
We have selected ten different routes to give you a taste of the varied huts and alpine pastures in Tyrol. We lead you on beautiful paths across the region to your well-deserved hut retreat; from the Tyrolean Oberland in the west, the Karwendel and the Wilder Kaiser in the north, the Kitzbüheler Alps in the east and, of course, the Ötztal, Zillertal and Stubaital in the south. You can reach most of the destinations on comfortable and well-maintained paths, which are also perfect for families and leisure hikers. Others, on the other hand, are more of a challenge to particularly remote mountain landscapes.
No matter which of our routes you choose, one thing is for sure: you will rarely have had such a tasty meal during a mountain hike.

The Burgeralm is the perfect hiking destination for lovers of excellent cheese. Because up here in the Chiemgau Alps, first-class cheese made from fresh hay milk is processed directly on site. The cows are grazing all around the pasture, and you can watch them on the hut terrace while having a snack. And for this tour, leave a little more space in your backpack, because you can not only try the different cheeses here, but also buy them in the farm shop.The hike to the Burgeralm starts at the hiking car park Feistenau. From here you can hike very comfortably on a wide farm road up to Burgeralm. The trail over wide alpine meadows is signposted throughout and rises only gently - perfect for a real pleasure hike. After a long rest on the Burgeralm it goes the same way back to the starting point.

At the end everyone meets again on the terrace of the Muttereralm, before finally taking the cable car down to the valley.The tour starts at the top station of the Muttereralmbahn. From here you follow our route through beautiful forests and on wide paths across promising mountain meadows.
