      Reach great heights in the high alpine: during this hike you will discover the Stubai Alps on another particularly beautiful path. You start the hike in Lüsens, and the final destination is the quaintly beautiful Westfalenhaus at 2,273 meters above sea level. You walk on a relatively wide path uphill and further on through the wonderfully scented mixed pine forest. Can you smell the special scent of the pine trees?As soon as you cross the Längentaler Bach, the nature becomes wilder, this is also a good place for a short break. A little further you reach the path that starts at Praxmar and you can follow until the final destination. From here you walk on path number 141 to the Westfalenhaus, which you can already see in the distance.Along the way you can enjoy beautiful views of the valley of the Bachfallenferner, but at the hut it is really enjoyable. Treat yourself to a delicious savory or sweet treat and walk back to Lüsen completely satisfied via the same route.

      Idyllic pastures in alpine surroundings: on this hike you reach great heights - very comfortably by train to the mountain station. Save your knees and energy to fully enjoy the mountains around you.The hike starts at the Birgitzköpfllift valley station. From here you go with the two-person chairlift to the Birgitzköpflhaus. The walk goes over the Halsl, the Schneiderspitze, the Widdersbergsattel and over the Hochtennboden to the Hoadlhaus. After a nice long break you take the Hoadlbahn back to Axamer Lizum. You can also walk this walking route the other way around.The highlight of this hike this time is not the spectacular view, but the many alpine animals that you can encounter along the way. Along the walking path you can spot chamois, curious marmots, and the cow greets you from afar with its bell. The great view doesn't disappoint either. It is not without reason that this hike with all its nice stops has been awarded the title "Tiroler Bergweg mit Auszeichnung".

      The wild brook and the magnificent view: on the tour to the Gacher Blick you will discover the fantastic nature of the Mieminger Mountains. You start the walk at the parking lot on the outskirts of Obermieming, walk through the gate and follow the gravel path towards Stöttlalm. Before the Stöttlalm, turn left at the fork and continue through the forest towards Boasligbrücke.Then comes the first ascent via hairpin bends. Once you've reached the Boasligbrücke, take a break: the view from the bridge is breathtakingly beautiful. The dramatic looking mountains, the wild brook babbling under you and you feel one with nature.Continue on the Pfarrer-Kathrein-Steig in the direction of Henneberg and climb the varied, relatively steep path to the Gacher Blick. There you have a great view of the Alps and the Judenklamm. On the way back you can skip the Boasligbrücke and walk directly back on the gravel path over the Kohlgrube.

      Mountains and an educational nature experience? The Patscherkofel nature trail has this nice combination. The path of the Jochleitensteig runs around the Patscherkofel. Every few meters there are information points explaining the view and the flora and fauna of the Patscherkofel-Zirmberg nature reserve. The height difference of the ascent is considerably shortened with the Patscherkofelbahn to the mountain station. This leaves only 200 vertical meters that you still have to overcome today. Good to do, right?From the mountain station, you walk in a westerly direction past the Patscherkofel refuge, which immediately tempts you to take a first break. Follow the road towards Hochmahdalm. After about 15 minutes, turn left onto Jochleitensteig. From here you walk through an old pine forest. It is lush and beautiful and smells so nice of summer. The stone pine gives off a wonderful scent. In the bedroom, this scent has a calming and sleep-inducing effect.But do not fall asleep, otherwise you will miss the beautiful view over the Stubaital, the Stubaier Gletscherwelt and the Wipptal to the Brenner. After about an hour and a half of walking you reach the Alpengasthof Boscheben, a cozy place to take a break. With renewed energy you walk further along the Zirbenweg in a westerly direction back to the mountain station of the Patscherkofelbahn.

      Enormously and impressively beautiful, that is the impression that the rugged world of the Karwendel leaves on everyone. During this hike you can fully enjoy the beauty of this area, because thanks to the cable car you only have to overcome 450 meters in height. Thanks to the Innsbrucker Nordkettenbahnen, you can enjoy a fantastic view from the Seegrube mountain station right at the start of the hike.Via the Goetheweg you walk further to the Gleirschspitze, which is very impressive at 2,317 meters. The view with the beautiful cross on the top is magnificent: in the north you can see the main peaks of the Karwendel, in the east the Rumerspitze and the Unterinntal, in the south and southwest the Tux and Stubai Alps and the Tyrolean capital Innsbruck.The second peak of the hike is the 2,334 meter high Hafelekarspitze. This breathtaking panoramic view will never get boring. Has your stomach rumbled so slowly? Then you can eat something at the mountain station of the Hafelekarbahn or you go directly to Innsbruck and find a nice restaurant in the city center.

      There are many beautiful hiking trails through the Sellrain Valley, but this route is really exceptionally beautiful thanks to the three lakes. The distance of the walk is manageable and the good trails make it perfect for sporty families. In about eight kilometers you walk from the winter sports resort of Kühtai across mountain meadows and visit three glittering mountain lakes along the way.The starting point of this hike is in Kühtai, which can be reached by bus lines 4166 and 4196 from Innsbruck. There is also ample parking space. From the start, the path leads slightly uphill to the shore of the Hirschebensee. After enjoying the first lake panorama here, you walk on a narrow path further uphill to the Mittlerer Plendlersee. From here, the signposted path leads without major differences in height to the cozy Drei-Seen-Hütte, where you can take a break on the terrace.With fresh energy you walk on to the Finstertal reservoir. The large reservoir is of artificial origin, but still very impressive. The mountain landscape, which is reflected in the water, is also worth a photo moment. The last part of the path winds all the way back to Kühtai from the dam.

      This fantastic Tour takes you through the picturesque Sendertal. This tour of nearly 16 kilometers is bursting with fantastic views and includes beautiful hiking trails. The starting point is at the Kaserl car park in Senderstal. For this walk you do need a good physical condition and a certain pace.You start with a tough climb along the unused Salfeins Alm to the idyllic Salfeinssee. On windless summer days, the huge Kalkkögel massif is reflected in the water. A perfect place for a short break.The path goes up, but the slope becomes a bit flatter. You are almost on the 2,170 meter high Grieskogel where you can really enjoy the beautiful panorama! The rest of the route you will also be rewarded with great views. The most beautiful part of this tour is yet to come: the ridge path from the Grieskogel to the Schaflegerkogel. You walk here on a narrow path over the ridge and have a great view of the surrounding peaks to the left and right.At the Kreuzjoch the path then takes you to the Senderstal where you can visit the Kemater Alm. The cozy restaurant has a sunny terrace. The last part of this Tour goes slowly downhill on the Sendersweg back to the starting point Kaserl.

      The Mieminger Range to the west of Innsbruck is a compact mountain range of exceptional beauty. The mountain range runs parallel to the Wetterstein Mountains and has always been somewhat in the shadow of its famous neighbor - fortunately, because this makes the landscape of the Mieminger range particularly unspoilt and natural. The ascent to the Wankspitze is perfect to warm up for more hikes in the mountains. The top is relatively easy to reach and along the way you will pass a cozy mountain hut and picturesque larch forests.The starting point of the hike is the Arzkasten hiking parking lot. From here, a signposted hiking trail leads you along the Sturlbach to the Lehnberghaus. Here you first walk on a wide gravel path and shortly afterwards on a natural walking path. If you wish, you can stop it in Lehnberghaus for a break during the ascent.About a kilometer from the Lehnberghaus, the viewing platform Lacken offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the Mieming plateau. Now the path becomes noticeably narrower and, shortly before the summit, also steeper. Over the south ridge it eventually goes to the cross at the top, where you will be rewarded with a beautiful view. From the top it is the same way back into the valley.

      The northern chain of the Karwendel cannot be missed from Innsbruck. And even though the enormous rock face of the Inn Valley seems invincible, thanks to the cable car to the Hafelekarspitze you can reach high heights in no time. The Goetheweg - also known as Hermann-Buhl-Weg - leads from the mountain station to the Pfeishütte and offers a continuous breathtaking view of Innsbruck and the Karwendel peaks.There are several options for descending from the Pfeishütte:
      Option 1: Walk the same way back and take the Hafelekarbahn to the valley.
      Option 2: Descend from the Pfeishütte over the Kreuzjöchl. You pass the Vintlalm and Rumer Alm and take the bus from the holiday village Rum back to Innsbruck.
      Option 3: Go over the Arzler Scharte down to the Arzler Alm, from the Alm you walk about 40 minutes to the Hungerburg. From here you can travel quickly and easily to Innsbruck by public transport.
      The Goetheweg starts at the mountain station of the Hafelekarbahn. Follow the signposted hiking trail to the Mühlkarscharte while enjoying a magnificent view of the wild peaks of the Hafelekarspitze and Gleirschspitze. The mountain hiking trail leads you along the northern flank of the Mandlspitze. After the crossing over the Mandlscharte, the landscape changes. The path now descends slowly through the alpine meadows and past mountain pines. After a well-deserved break at the Pfeishütte you can start your way back.

      The Patscherkofel is the home mountain of Innsbruck - and thanks to the cable car also easily accessible without having to climb long. On the ridge and the wide slopes lies one of the largest pine forests in the Alps. On the signposted Zirbenweg you can explore the forest on your own and you will be pampered again and again with beautiful views of the Tyrolean capital along the way. The hiking trail has been awarded the Tiroler Mountain Trail label and is also suitable for families.At the start of the hike you take the gondolas of the Patscherkofelbahn to the mountain station at Igls. The Zirbenweg starts here. First the route runs over open mountain meadows and then into the mountain pine forest. The natural hiking trail winds up and down the ridge between Patscherkofel and Neunerspitze. On the way you can take a rest in the cozy Bochebenhütte.You can also choose to let yourself be pampered at the end of the tour, in the Tulfeinalm, surrounded by extensive alpine meadows. Just a few minutes from the Alm, the Glungezer Bahn will take you to Tulfes. From here there is a bus connection back to the starting point in Igls or directly to Innsbruck.
