    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.

    The Hohe Burgstall is probably the easiest to climb, the Stubaier Seven Summits, but is not inferior to his brothers and sisters. The summit at the southwestern end of the Kalkkögel is a fantastic view mountain. But above all, it shows you the whole variety of the Stubai Alps, because it stands as limestone on primary rock and when you climb the shapely summit you see this rock change with every step.

    On the border between Italy and Austria a mountain rises so beautiful and mighty, with a garment of white firn. The Italians call it "Cima Libera", you could think for its beauty. The Austrians call him the Wild Freiger - and he is also wild. A very popular playground for all adventurous alpinists. He stands next to his big brother the Zuckerhütl, but with his 3,418 meters, he has at least as much to offer.

    The second part starts right at the view of the magnificent Grawa Waterfall. From here you continue on the old alpine trail. Good shoes, sure-footedness and a bit of fitness are required - but it's worth it. As you ascend, you can admire the waterfall on two other platforms. Here you can feel the unbridled power of the water, the roaring, tremors and mist on your skin. And moreover, fresher air you rarely find where.

    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.
