February 12, 2018
The approximately 10-kilometer-long, medium-difficulty day tour over the Goetheweg is considered one of the most beautiful hikes around Innsbruck. Here you will get to know both the rough Karwendel mountains and its gentle side covered in meadows and pines.The goal of your tour is the Pfeishütte at 1,950 meters above sea level with its original restaurant and a large sun terrace. A special experience is the overnight stay at the Pfeishütte: in the evening you can see the sun disappear behind the mountains and on the following morning you can enjoy a wonderful sunrise.From the mountain station Hafelekar Nordkettenbahn you first wander without major differences in altitude in an easterly direction to the Gleierschjöchl and on to the Mühlkarscharte. Just follow the signs to the Pfeishütte. The trail passes over the back of the Nordkette and below the Mandlspitze. A short stretch up the serpentines to the highest point of the hike to the Mandlscharte (2,314 meters). On the other side of the ridge, the path leads down to the "Pfeis" and then gently, through the pines to the Pfeishütte.After the stop you will hike back to the mountain station Hafelekar on the same way and take the cable car down to the center of Innsbruck.Alternatively, you can descend via the Arzler Scharte on the trail no. 217 to the Arzler Alm and on to the Nordkettenbahn station on the Hungerburg. For the way you should plan about three and a half hours from the Pfeishütte. However, this tour is partly through debris and is only recommended for experienced mountain hikers.
